The British Invasion / American Revolution


The British Invasion


In the mid-1960’s, North America was swept by a wave of rock and pop from the UK that would have an enormous impact on music and pop-culture for generations to come. Inspired by American rhythm-and-blues and rock-and-roll of previous decades, young British groups began to infuse these styles with up-tempo melodic pop and fiery guitar-based instrumentation.


As a result of the British Invasion, the America Pop Revolution of the 60s was born. Some of the artists who hit the top ten in the charts in the USA were The Beach Boys,  Paul Revere and the Raiders, The Monkees, The Lovin’ Spoonful, The Box Tops, Sam the Sham and the Pharos, Tommy James and the Shondells, The Young Rascals and many others .
