However one of the most resent and interesting parts of British influence on American culture can be find in 60s is known as “British Invasion”. The term itself appeared in 1964 as the reporter Walter Cronkite was covering the Beatles arrival in the US. The story behind it says that the Beatles arrived in New York on February 7, 1964. It was a school day, but Capitol Records made sure that there would be a crowd at the airport by “leaking” the Beatles schedule to New York radio stations. About 3,000 teenagers skipped school that day so they could be at the airport when the Beatles arrived.CBS covered the story and, as they showed footage of the Beatles leaving the plane, Walter Cronkite said, “The British invasion this time goes by the code name Beatlemania.
There is some controversy over who really made the first music video. The Beatles may, or may not, have invented the music video, but they certainly made it popular and defined it: "There have been many claims on who made the first music video, with groups such as the Beatles, Who and Kinks often cited as examples. Some have claimed that Ricky Nelson made the first music video in 1961. However, three years earlier in 1958, the Big Bopper actually recorded three music videos for his songs: ‘Chantilly Lace’, ‘Big Bopper's Wedding’, and ‘Little Red Riding Hood’. Plus, he also coined the term ‘rock video’ in a printed interview in 1959.
This essay will consist on how these musicians took control of America and the impact it gave to us. Their energy came across the screen and caused young girls to scream and their fathers to protest. The Beatles came to New York City on February 7,1964,less than three months after the assassination of J.F.K. In his book “The Beatles Come To America” Martin Goldsmith states that and the band brought with them a sound that hadn’t been heard before and helped rouse the country out of mourning. John Lennon wrote over 70 of the songs by himself, including A Hard Days Night, Let It Be, All You need is love, Come Together, and I Am the Walrus.

Bob Dylan in 1960’s America The 1960s in America brought about great change not just to the country and its people but to music as well. The decade brought out some of the world’s most famous and greatest artists ever known to history. A prime example is Bob Dylan. Before Dylan made his appearance in the music scene, people hardly wrote protest songs or wrote songs the way that he did. His creative process included using the political turmoil and current events around him to express his love or hatred towards these events, in a poetic manner.
The MP3 was created in the 90s; followed by the rise of the Internet. P2P networks allowed consumers to download and share recorded music with anyone across the globe. These technological innovations were great for consumers, but terrible for the recording industry, as piracy devastated profits.

A fan club known as The KISS Army was then born in late November of 1975, showing the peoples interest in the band, and from this, the band gave the fans what they wanted.
On the other hand Sources 10 and 12 suggest that popular music was not successful due to the representation of youth rebellion. Source 10, yes proposes that ‘Rock’n’Roll’ expressed ‘adolescent attitudes’ however it also suggests that the reason for popular music being successful was due to the buying power of the teenager by 1959 as they had more disposable income than the generation of teenagers before them either. Source 12 however does suggest that the popular music of 1976 (Punk) was successful because like source 10, Source 12 suggests that popular music was so successful because it captured the teenager and made them feel like they belonged as by 1976 the generation gap between adults and teenagers was wider than ever before as it was the adults that believed that popular music of any era, was seen to be rebellious towards authority because it was not the norm. This view is clearly represented in source 10, the editorial from the Times news paper in 1959. This editorial’s tone feels slightly patronising towards the popular music of that time as it refers to teenagers as ‘adolescents’ which make them seem to be young and
The Beatles changed the face of music. Their lyrics spoke about love and peace during the unsettling 1960s, their recording technique was very innovative, and their diverse music style appealed to all generations. The Beatles’ lyrics gave America hope in the early 1960s when many Americans were grieving the loss of their President, John F. Kennedy, and in the late 1960s during the Vietnam War. Even before these events, the Beatles were inspiring people with songs like She Loves You. She Loves You contains the words, She loves you And you know you should be glad.
