History

The chart was created as an answer to criticism of the Billboard Hot 100, the most popular Billboard singles chart. Many complained that the Hot 100 was biased against non-rhythmic songs, making it difficult for a pop, rock, or country song to reach the top ten. In fact, every number-one in 2004 was by a hip-hop or R&B artist. To illustrate another extreme, at the time the Pop 100 was first published, only two country act in the previous 20 years had reached #1 on the Hot 100 (Lonestar in 2000 with "Amazed") and (Carrie Underwood in 2005 with "Inside Your Heaven") The Billboard Hot 100 is the United States music industry standard singles popularity chart issued weekly by Billboard magazine. ...

I had been looking for any information on an 80s band called "The Pop," whose one album I found in a quarter bin when I was in college, but their super-generic name and almost total lack of success seems to have made them impossible to find.
Update: Mike's more efficient sleuthing actually found The Pop for me. Much to my surprise (and delight, since they'll probably be easier to find), they put out more albums than the one I found in the three-for-a-dollar bin at In Your Ear Records in Boston so long ago.
I figured The Pop would be one of the most difficult acts to track down again, but maybe there's hope for the rest after all.
