14 Rockstars and their favorite Pop Hits

Rockstars also like pop music. But, for years and years, the worlds of Rock and Pop had fought. Often rockstars criticize the pop music for using “manufactured” songs and artists, while the popstars responds by citing the rockers’ arrogance by diminishing Pop.


It turns out that many rockstars like pop music. Back in 2012 Fuse recorded a video interviewing rock stars and asking them to tell which Pop song they loved.

With names like Slash (Guns N ‘Roses), Alice Cooper and Amy Lee (Evanescence), the result is quite curious. Some just answer the original question, which asks what is the “guilty pleasure” (that song they hear hidden) of each one. But others like Corey Taylor (Slipknot) insist that they are not ashamed of anything they hear.

I'm a Brazilian journalist who always loved Classic Rock and Heavy Metal music. That passion inspired me to create Rock and Roll Garage over 6 years ago. Music has always been a part of my life, helping me through tough times and being a support to celebrate the good ones. When I became a journalist, I knew I wanted to write about my passions. After graduating in journalism from the Pontifical Catholic University of Minas Gerais, I pursued a postgraduate degree in digital communication at the same institution. The studies and experience in the field helped me improve the website and always bring the best of classic rock to the world! MTB: 0021377/MG
