I Would Give My Whole Life to Her

AV Club gives you the quick and utterly incomplete history lesson on power pop here. But hey, they call Matthew Sweet's Girlfriend the best of the 90s with Material Issue's Freak City Soundtrack a close second (although I would argue for International Pop Overthrow instead).


It's a start of your fantastical journey into power pop. You'll be thrilled with what you discover.

Wow, woefully lacking. How can you talk about Power Pop without mentioning who coined it (Pete Townshend)?
