Through the examination of the popular an effort is made to detect the meanings which the term ‘popular’ acquires in contrast to the term ‘laiko’ and the term ‘mass’. Pop conveys singular messages which are related to its value system with the style and custom of its compositions and renditions, as well as its participants, creators, mediators and audience. Oftentimes, pop is not only not linked to the masses but is in fact unpopular.
