The British Invasion was a musical movement in the 1960s when British rock and pop music acts became popular in the United States and other countries. It was a reaction to the dominance of American rock and roll in the 1950s and early 1960s. The British Invasion was led by the Beatles, who were the most successful and influential of the British acts. Other British Invasion acts included the Rolling Stones, the Kinks, the Who, the Animals, the Dave Clark Five, Herman's Hermits, and the Hollies. These bands and artists brought a new sound to the US, with their unique blend of blues, folk, and rock and roll. They also had a major influence on the development of the genre of rock music.
