Picopop is a type of electronic music, similar to electropop, with origins in Japanese experimental bands.

The name derives from "pikopiko" (the Japanese onomatopoeia for the electronic sounds characteristic of 8-bit synthesis) and pop.

Correspondingly, the style is characterized by the prominent and ingenious use of electronic instruments and effects with an often frantic, fun, pop style.
