Military Brat
A MILITARY BRAT (colloquial or military slang ) is the child of a person in the military. Military brats are associated with a unique subculture and cultural identity . A military brat's childhood or adolescent life may be immersed in military culture to the point where the mainstream culture of their home country may seem foreign or peripheral . In a number of countries (but not all) where there are military brat subcultures, the child's family moves great distances from one non-combat assignment to another for much of their youth. For highly mobile military brats, a mixed cultural identity often results, due to exposure to numerous national or regional cultures. Within military culture, the term "military brat" is not considered to be a pejorative (as in describing a spoiled child ), but rather connotes affection and respect

Pop Rock
POP ROCK (also typeset as POP/ROCK ) is rock music with a lighter, smoother approach that is more reminiscent of commercial pop music . Originating in the 1950s as an alternative to rock and roll , early pop rock was influenced by the beat, arrangements, and style of rock and roll (and sometimes doo-wop ), but placed a greater emphasis on professional songwriting and recording craft. It may be viewed as one genre field, rather than two distinct categories. The detractors of pop rock often deride it as a slick, commercial product, less authentic than rock music .
