A notable movement in kayokyoku in the late 1960s into the early 1970s is the "Group Sounds" movement. Influenced heavily by groups such as Music/TheBeatles, TheByrds, and other such groups, group sounds bands were characterized by their reliance on PsychedelicRock and BaroquePop influenced instrumentation and featured Bishonen lead singers usually, such as Kenji "Julie" Sawada from TheTigers.

J-pop technically isn't a genre and only tells one where the artist is from. Some music fans get irritated by its treatment as a defined genre as it is really just regular pop, but happens to be Japanese. Same goes for J-rock, J-urban, J-metal and any other genre that has the letter j thrown in front of it to describe Japanese artists. Of course, the same can technically also be said of {{anime}}, {{manga}}, {{toku}} and the like. It's not as if we have a different word for Japanese video games. Except when concerning RPGS (JRPGS.)
