The Alfred Rough Guide to Cult Pop is devoted to pop music: the tacky, catchy, and yet enduring music we grew up with when we should have been listening to something more profound.

So put on your blue suede shoes (or your tartan trousers or puffball skirt) and take a stroll down Electric Avenue with this handy pocket guide.
Chapters in Rough Guide to Cult Pop include information about how technology shaped pop music, the stories behind chart-topping pop songs, lists of essential pop trivia, background stories of the people who made pop music what it is today, lists of funny pop artifacts like Michael Jackson's sleeping bag, what happens when Hollywood and pop music collide, plus 50 years of pop music history compressed chronologically.
