Pop rock is a music genre which mixes a catchy pop style and light lyrics in its (typically) guitar-based rock songs. Scholars have noted that the term "pop" and "rock" are usually depicted as opposites; the detractors of pop often deride it as a slickly-commercial commodity, whereas rock is purportedly an "authentic" and "sincere" form of music.
