Last week, the Totally 80s Podcast helped answer a surprisingly tough question: what exactly is power pop?

Now that they've got that out of the way, Lyndsey Parker, John Hughes and special guest Paul Myers - host of the Record Store Day Podcast. and editor of Go All the Way: A Literary Appreciation of Power Pop - go through some of their favorite examples of the jangly, heavenly genre, from Cheap Trick, XTC and Redd Kross to Squeeze, The Vapors and The Smithereens. Plus, just how much power pop was produced by Todd Rundgren? The answer will...probably not surprise you, if you're a fan!

Hear it wherever you find your podcasts or watch the episode above!
