From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Cringe pop is a genre of pop music written to be cringeworthy, deliberately or unintentionally.


While the true origins of the genre are unknown, an Indian magazine credited Rebecca Black's song "Friday" as giving birth to the genre.[1] The song, which was released in 2011, has over 149.6 million views and 3.8 million dislikes on YouTube as of January 2021.[2]

Black was soon followed by Taher Shah, a Pakistani singer. His music video "Angel" went viral.[3] His first music video, "Eye to Eye", was released in 2013, and "Angel" was released in 2016.[4]

Cringe pop has spread due to the advancement of technology, essentially allowing anyone with a laptop to be able to produce a song and a music video.[5]


Jacintha Morris, an Indian civil servant, released "Is Suzainn the Sinner" in 2016, which was labelled a cringe pop song.[6] Morris herself denied that the song was intended to be cringe pop.[7]

Other examples include "Aunty Ki Ghanti" by Indian rapper Omprakash Mishra released in 2015[8] and "PPAP (Pen-Pineapple-Apple-Pen)" by Japanese comedian Pikotaro, and the "Pokémon Go Song" by Czech child singer Misha/Mishovy Silenosti, both released in 2016.[9]

Tony Kakkar, an Indian singer and composer, is often called out for cringe-worthy lyrics.[10]


Such songs are described as being "so bad that you can not stop watching them".[3]
