Four Games Every Pop Fan Should Try

Pop music fans have plenty of games to pick from to fill the hours during lockdown.

With the global pandemic still keeping a lot of us stuck at home for long periods of time, finding some new ways to stay entertained is getting tougher.

Here are four of the best games that every pop fan should try out.

1. Guess The Song – Music Quiz

One of the most popular mobile apps aimed at pop fans is Guess The Song – Music Quiz, which has a lot of great reviews on the Android Play Store.

There are thousands of songs included on the game so there is almost no chance of getting through them all, with the makers having put 50 different categories inside the game too.

Social features have been built into the game so it is possible to play Guess The Song – Music Quiz with friends, while two players can also share the same device to play the game as well.

Guess The Song – Music Quiz has everything from recent pop hits all the way through to timeless classics from eras such as the 1960s and the 1980s.


The only downside is that Guess The Song – Music Quiz is not currently available to download on to iOS devices, though the App Store has a lot of similar pop quiz games to try out.

2. Michael Jackson – King of Pop slot game

Playing at online casinos has become a lot more popular during the pandemic, with slots typically the first port of call for people when they sign up for a new account.

Music lovers should definitely try out the Michael Jackson – King of Pop slot game, which has been made by Bally Technologies.

Some of MJ’s biggest hits from his long and successful musical career – like Billie Jean, Dirty Diana, Smooth Criminal and Bad – have been included in the game.

There are a few good options for those who want to have a few spins of the reels on the Michael Jackson – King of Pop slot game but Dogslots found the best place to play these slots for real money was nowe kasyna bez depozytu.

Bonus features have been included in Michael Jackson – King of Pop to keep the excitement levels ramped up, with players hoping to hit the Smooth Criminal bonus on the game.

3. Band Hero

If slot games are not for you, then maybe a game like Band Hero will hit the mark instead?

Part of the wildly popular Guitar Hero series of video games, Band Hero was aimed more at fans of pop music than rock music when it came out all the way back in 2009.

Despite being more than 10 years old, Band Hero is still well worth playing although obviously the game lacks songs that have been released in recent times.

In terms of a game that can provide fun for all the family, Band Hero certainly hits the mark. Up to four players can jam along to the same tune on Band Hero, with gamers able to pick from lead and bass guitar, drums and vocals.


Dozens of songs by the biggest artists from the world of pop are included in Band Hero, such as Don’t Speak by No Doubt, I Heard It Through the Grapevine by Marvin Gaye, Kids by Robbie Williams and Kylie Minogue, and Taylor Swift’s classic hit Love Story.

4. ‎SongPop 2 – Guess The Song

Competing with ‎Guess The Song – Music Quiz for a mobile audience is SongPop 2 – Guess The Song, which is available to download on both iOS and Android devices.

The sequel to the original SongPop game, SongPop 2 – Guess The Song is described by its developers as the world’s largest music trivia community.

Van Halen, Queen, Ed Sheeran, Drake, Taylor Swift, Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber are among the long list of artists to be included in the SongPop 2 – Guess The Song game.

FreshPlanet’s game is free to download and to play but there is the option to upgrade to a VIP subscription each month for a small fee.

Over 100,000 real music clips are included in SongPop 2 – Guess The Song and the library is updated on a regular basis, so new artists like Billie Eilish are added to the game as well.
