The mid-'70s saw the rise of punk music, major acts include the Ramones, Stranglers, Blondie, The Sex Pistols and The Clash.
'Chart' is a catch-all category to mean music that is popular right now and very recently. The kinds of stuff you will hear on BBC Radio 1 and 2, along with commercial stations, and is generally of interest to typical casual listeners / dancers.
Heavy Metal is a particular niche genre of rock music that employs a thick, massive sound characterised by distortion, emphatic beats and sheer loudness. Lyrics and performances are frequently aggressive and machismotic.
Rock is a broad genre that encompasses a range of styles, drawing on many other genres. In general, however, "rock" is typically separated from "pop" through the preference for 4/4 timing, the predominant use of drums and electric guitars for the lead, and energetic singing.
The 1980s saw the rise of MTV and music videos. Michael Jackson and Madonna were the most powerful musicians during this time. Their videos became a permanent fixture on MTV and gained a worldwide mass audience. Michael Jackson's Thriller album from 1982 is the best-selling album of all time.
In the second half of the 1980s teen pop became popular with bands and artists like New Kids on the Block, Debbie Gibson, Tiffany, Tommy Page, New Edition, Stacey Q, The Bangles, Madonna, Olivia Newton-John and others.
Urban pop acts of the 1980s include Tina Turner, Lionel Richie, Michael Jackson, Whitney Houston and Deniece Williams.

And then there were the New Romantics like The Human League, Duran Duran, Spandau Ballet, Culture Club, Visage and Soft Cell alongside rock bands like Queen, Motley Crue, Bon Jovi, Europe, Twisted Sister, Poison, Whitesnake, Guns N' Roses and the successful comebacks of Aerosmith and Alice Cooper.

Add with the beginnings of hip hop with Run D.M.C., Beastie Boys, NWA, LL Cool J, Public Enemy, Eric B. & Rakim, Big Daddy Kane, Boogie Down Productions, and Ice T, among others and the 80's truly had something for everybody.
Pop music in the 1990s saw the continuation of teen pop and dance pop trends that emerged during the 1970s and 1980s, along with hip hop which grew in popularity during the decade. The Britpop movement saw various interchangeable groups such as Blur, Suede, Pulp, Ash, Supergrass, The Verve and Oasis regularly topping the charts throughout the decade.
