British Invasion

British Invasion

When the Beatles arrived in the United States on February 7, 1964, they had the number “1” song on the USA Billboard charts with “I Want to Hold Your Hand.” A correspondent covering their arrival said “The British Invasion this time goes by the code name Beatlemania” and it set off a wave of a large number of British rock ‘n’ roll and pop performers who became popular in the USA from 1964 to 1966.
