To start, the 60s are best known for the “British Invasion”.
What was the British Invasion? During this time, music groups originating from England for the first time experienced breakthrough success in the United States. Some of the most notable bands include The Beatles, The Animals, and The Rolling Stones. The Beatles, who are considered to have created the breakthrough, are also one of the best selling rock groups of all time.
The 60s also saw the rise of more subgenres of rock music including psychedelic rock, folk rock, blues rock, roots rock, and surf rock. Folk rock, for example, usually include politically charged lyrics and messages. Bands such as Bob Dylan, The Mamas and The Papas, and Simon and Garfunkel are just a few bands that were included in this genre. Other rock sub-genres, such as Psychedelic Rock, were influenced by not only by folk rock, but also by the drug culture that was prevalent throughout the decade. Psychedelic rock groups include bands such as The Grateful Dead, The Doors and the The Byrds. The Beach Boys, are one of the most popular Surf Rock bands from this decade.
Other than rock, R&B and soul music began to gain mainstream popularity. This, large part, was due to the formation of Motown Record Corporation. Established in 1960, this label provided R&B and soul groups the promotion needed to achieve popularity. Motown Record Corporation included acts such as The Jackson Five, The Supremes, The Temptations, and The Marvelettes.
The 60’s were full of amazing musicians. Among the top artists are Jimi Hendrix, The Beatles, The Supremes, The Beach Boys, The Rolling Stones, Ray Charles, Janis Joplin, The Four Seasons, The Animals, Peter, Paul, and Mary, Jimi Hendrix, and The Who. From the the British Invasion, to psychedelic rock, and R&B classics, the 60’s had some of the greatest artists of all time.
