 60s Beat
The Beat wave of music in the 60s is largely credited to acts from England and the UK. 'Beat' was nothing to do with it's literary counterpart of the 1960s and more to do with the driving rhythms which the bands had adopted from their R&B/Soul influences.

In the mid-1960s the UK was the dominant force in music, especially in the USA. A 'British Invasion' of acts led by The Beatles swept across the Atlantic and stormed the charts in America. To the UK audiences bands such as The Searchers or Gerry & The Pacemakers were Merseybeat. While Mod was the name for more adrenalin fuelled acts like The Action or The Who. The influences all these bands felt came from the power of the blues mixed with a more soulful, rhythmic slant. The British 60s Beat era did produce some worldwide successes but many of the acts didn't progress into the later Psychedelic era or more 'rock' decade of the 70s.
