Bubblegum Pop Artists | List of Best Bubblegum Pop Bands

If you grew up in the mid-1960s through the early-1970s, it's highly likely that you became a fan of bubblegum pop. The genre, which targeted tweens and teens, had an upbeat sound and featured young men and women singing these catchy songs. Some might say that bubblegum pop was the precursor to boy bands and pop stars, and they wouldn't be wrong.

*Note: many of the artists on this list don't fall under the classic ('60s/'70s) era of bubblegum music.

Love it or hate it, there's no denying that bubblegum music - true bubblegum, not boy bands or tweener divas like Britney Spears - was quite the phenomenon in its heyday (roughly 1968 to 1974). Reportedly, it all started with rock guru Don Kirsher, tired of dealing with the egos of his manufactured pop group the Monkees, decided to create a TRULY manufactured group with no real faces and names to get in the way.
