Robert Pope is an American musician.
Rob Pope grew up in Olathe, Kansas. In the summer of 1994, he was in a band called "Kingpin" with his brother Ryan and future Get Up Kids bandmate Jim Suptic. After the band broke up due to internal conflicts, Rob and Jim re-formed with Matt Pryor, who had been playing with Secular Theme and friend Nathan Shay on drums. After Shay was replaced with Rob's brother Ryan, the band recorded its first release, Four Minute Mile.
After The Get Up Kids called it quits, Rob joined the band Koufax, along with his brother Ryan to form their new rhythm section. In 2005 he joined the band White Whale to record their album WW1. Soon afterward he joined the band Spoon and recorded their album Ga Ga Ga Ga Ga. He currently lives in Brooklyn, New York.
