Pop Music Magazine Comparison.

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Pop Music Magazine Comparison The magazines that are being compared are two different styles of magazines. One is a pop band magazine and the other is rock. The people in these magazines stereotype the word "HAMMER" it shows the long hair and shouting into the microphone. The other magazine stereotypes nice clothes and nice hair. The people who read this magazine are emulators they look up to these people and will go at and wear what they wear. They act how they act. The aim of the magazine is to persuade the readers to go out and buy their CDs. The large hammer font connotes heavy metal and banging. They use hooks to try and get the buyers attention like 'free CD' or 'free posters'. The use of language is completely different, one says 'SCREW THE CRITICS' and the other is 'BLUE ARE BACK' This shows one that is abusive and the other is more formal. ...read more.

Compared to the 'Darkness' they are a lot in my opinion because the 'Darkness' uses high-pitched voices. The tight trousers they wear connote this. 'Big Brovas' convent swaying and bopping up and down. The 'Darkness' convent jumping up and down and a lot of movement. The 'Darkness'' institution is Top Of The Pops. Their audience would be older than teenagers. They represent themselves as scruffy people e.g. ripped vests long hair and tight trousers. Pop Music The name of the act is 'Girls Aloud'.

They are a pop band whose audience is mainly young girls. They represent themselves as very nicely dressed attractive women. The name of the act is 'Good Charlotte'. ...read more.

Conclusion

The genre of this magazine is heavy metal/rock this was the fashion when David Bowie was a popular singer. This magazine would be for people with special interests in this sort of music. The font and style of writing tells the audience what sort of genre this is has a black background and a man with white make-up on which signals a genre of the gothic nature. It hooks are things that are on in today's magazine like 'Brand new collectors record section' I don't think they use hooks very well in this magazine because it isn't really anything good in the offer. the only main colours used is black and white, the white make-up connotes the gothic genre. The main feature is a close-up (c.u) of David Bowie. He is stereotyping the typical grunger who is always in a depressive state. The ideology of the magazine is they believe in sucide and stuff many famous gothic stars have been known to go into a depressive state and commit suicide. ...read more.
