Aretha Franklin, "Rainha do Soul", homenageada com a Medalha Presidencial da Liberdade em novembro de 2005

Apelidos honorários na música popular são geralmente nomes religiosos, familiares ou (mais frequentemente) reais e aristocráticos em natureza, e são usados como uma forma de expressão na mídia, ou para identificar a importância de um artista para seus fãs. Os apelidos honoríficos foram usados na música clássica na Europa já no início do século XIX, com figuras como Mozart sendo chamado de "O pai da música moderna" e Bach "O pai da música moderna do piano". Eles também foram particularmente proeminentes na cultura afro-americana na era pós-Guerra civil, talvez como um meio de conferir status que tinha sido negado pela escravidão nos Estados Unidos, e em conseqüência incorporou a música do jazz e do blues, incluindo figuras como Duke Ellington e Count Basie.

Na cultura americana, apesar de sua constituição e ideologia republicana, honoríficos têm sido usados para descrever figuras líderes em várias áreas de atividade, como indústria, comércio, esporte e mídia; "Pai" ou "mãe" foram usados para inovadores, e títulos reais como "rei" e "rainha" para figuras dominantes em um campo. Nas décadas de 1930 e 1940, enquanto o jazz e a música swing ganhavam popularidade, eram os artistas brancos mais bem-sucedidos comercialmente, Paul Whiteman e Benny Goodman que se tornaram conhecidos como "O Rei do Jazz" e "O Rei do Swing ", respectivamente, apesar de tais gêneros de música originária da cultura afro-americana. Estes padrões de nomeação foram transferidos para o rock and roll quando surgiu na década de 1950. Houve uma série de tentativas de encontrar (e um número de pretendentes a ser) o "Rei do Rock and Roll", um título que se tornou mais associado com Elvis Presley. Isso tem sido visto como parte de um processo de apropriação de crédito pela inovação da então nova música por um estabelecimento branco. Diferentes honoríficos foram tomados ou dados para outras figuras importantes do gênero, como "O Arquiteto do Rock and Roll", de Little Richard, da década de 1990, Mas este termo, como muitos, também é usado para outras figuras importantes, neste caso, incluindo o guitarrista pioneiro Les Paul.[1]

A source at Fox confirms that Jackson's people did request that Bart use the phrase "King of Pop" in the video and that the phrase also be used in the network's press releases; "King of Pop" also crops up in Fox's print ads for the video and in press releases by Jackson's publicists, Solters/Roskin/Friedman.
