American Music Awards:
Pop/Rock Songs of the Year, 1974-2022
The American Music Awards (AMAs) were established in 1973 when ABC lost its contract to air the Grammys. They were created by Dick Clark. The AMAs are determined by public vote. The winners for favorite pop/rock song are listed here. That category existed from 1974-1995, was retired for more than a decade, and then returned in 2016. In the interim, there was also a Single of the Year award from 2013-2015.
