This presentation will discuss FRBR's framework for organizing popular music and its limitations as a potential model for the organization of popular music in Wikidata. It will discuss how popular music is currently organized in Wikidata and how that organizational structure is inadequate to deal with both current and future needs. Since Wikidata is still flexible enough to accommodate structural changes to its ontologies, these issues can be addressed now before such changes become more difficult or large data sets regarding popular music are imported and it is found that existing ontologies are inadequate to fully leverage this data.
