The British Invasion was when music came of age — not in America, where rock ’n’ roll was already a healthy seven years old; nor in the U.K. It was on a global scale that the Invasion mattered, translating for a worldwide audience the thoughts and dreams of a truly provincial musical movement. For what else were Manchester, St. Albans, Newcastle and Liverpool (the home cities of our first four entrants) if not provincial? And between 1964 and 1966, it was towns and cities like these that ruled the world, dictating hair, clothing, even language and slang, to teens across the planet.
The records that are on this App are singled out as the toppermost of the Invasion poppermost are those that, today, still resonate with all of the magic that hallmarked the original Invasion. Whether it’s the everyman mundanity of “Bus Stop,” speaking to everyone who has ever waited for public transport in the rain, or the universal suffering of “Tobacco Road.”
The British Invasion began in late 1963, and ended with the beginning of 1967, when psychedelic rock became mainstream.
These British artists are rated only for their actions and recordings from 1963 to 1966. Chart success in the US and UK, lasting popularity of their recorded work, influence of their recordings and live shows, and musical impact were taken into consideration. Although the term British Invasion is only used for British bands and musicians that were present in the American charts
