The British Invasion playlist

The British Invasion

It’s been 50 years since the beginning of the British invasion of the US with their music and it had a huge impact on popular music. It helped internationalize rock and roll, establishing the British popular music industry as a viable center of musical creativity and opened the door for subsequent British performers to achieve international success with The Beatles and The Rolling Stones who hit it big with number one hits that are still played all over the airwaves today.

Within a couple of years other British artists such as Dusty SpringfieldPeter and GordonThe AnimalsManfred MannPetula ClarkFreddie and the DreamersWayne Fontana and the MindbendersHerman's HermitsThe Dave Clark FiveThe Troggs, and Donovan would have one or more number one singles in the US.

Other Invasion acts included The SearchersBilly J. KramerChad & Jeremy,  Gerry and the PacemakersThe KinksThe HoneycombsThem (and later its lead singer, Van Morrison), Tom JonesThe YardbirdsThe WhoThe Zombies, and The Hollies, which were influenced by the invasion's pop side and US rock music. 

The musical style of British Invasion artists, such as the Beatles, was influenced by earlier US rock 'n' roll, a genre which had lost some popularity and appeal by the time of the Invasion. White British performers essentially revived a musical genre rooted in black US culture.
