Thai pop or T-pop, is a genre of Thai music roughly equivalent to western pop. It had a golden age during the 1970s–90s and was during that period known as String music (Thai: เพลงสตริง). It took over mainstream popularity during the 1990s and has since dominated the Thai music industry.

String's origins lie in American R&B, surf rock artists like The Ventures and Dick Dale, Exotica, rockabilly and country and western brought to Thailand by American and Australian soldiers serving in Vietnam in the late 1950s and early 1960s. It also drew heavily on British invasion rock'n'roll, garage rock and Hollywood film soundtracks. The term is extremely broad, covering Thai rock, dance music, rap and western-influenced popular music in general. It normally excludes the folk, rock, phleng phuea chiwit. Since 1980s it mixed with other genres, such as disco, funk, dance.
