Pop music is great for chill Just Chatting streams or fun, carefree games. Though playing well-known tracks are prohibited on Twitch, you can find royalty-free pop songs that will keep your viewers smiling while you dance in your chair.
Is Pop Royalty Free?
In order to ensure that you don’t get a DMCA strike, you will need to use royalty-free music. Renting or buying music for personal use doesn’t allow you to legally stream it to your channel.
One of the best sources for royalty-free music is Epidemic Sound. They have over 30,000 tracks in several different genres and each song is categorized to help you find the music you want for your stream. The best news is that they off a free 30-day trial so that you can check out their music for yourself.
A membership with Epidemic Sound will allow you to access and use their library of music on Twitch, YouTube, Facebook, and Instagram. You are free to create without worrying that you will get DMCA strikes on any content made while your membership is active, and the company won’t come after you for that content even if you end your membership.

I was able to create a 3-hour Pop Playlist on Epidemic Sound in just a few minutes. The platform makes finding the right music easy and you can scan each track to make sure it is something you would enjoy on your channel. If you change your mind about a song, it is easy to remove or replace it with a new song.

How to Create a Pop Playlist on Epidemic Sound
To create you own Pop playlist on Epidemic Sound, complete the following steps:
Step 1: Create an Epidemic Sound account.
Step 2: Click on “Me” in the top right-hand side of the screen.
Step 3: Click the “Create Playlist” button on the left-hand sidebar.
Step 4: Name the playlist and add it to a project (optional). Click the Save button.
Step 5: Search for Pop music. You can do this in three different ways:
- Use the search function in the top right-hand corner of the screen to search for “Pop,” “Indie Pop,” or any other variation.
- Click the Pop option under genres on the home page, then add the the moods that will narrow down the tracks to your favorite style of Pop.
- Type in the names of a few of the songs on the playlist that we listed above.
Step 6: Listen to the song or scan through sections of it using your mouse (you will be able to see the song at the bottom of the screen). If you like it and want to add it to your playlist, click the “+” option to the right of the song.
Step 7: After you’ve found 3-4 songs that you really like in the genre, you can either continue searching through songs in the same way or return to the “Me” section.
Step 8: Select your playlist, then scroll to the bottom of the screen. Epidemic will select three tracks that are similar to the songs in the playlist. You can listen to them in the same way you did in step 6 and add the ones you like to your list. This makes it extremely easy to grow a strong playlist in a short amount of time.
Step 9: You can also select a song that you like and select the “Find Similar” option to find new tracks. Over time, you will be able to create a longer playlist that you and your audience will enjoy during your stream.
A membership with Epidemic Sound allows you full access hours and hours of the genre of your choice. You can create multiple playlists for your stream or even have your audience help you decide on which songs they like or dislike over time.
