Garage Rock, British Invasion, rock

College kid playing guitarIn the 1960's the British Invasion created a wave of new musicians in the USA and throughout the world striving to be the next Beatles or Rolling Stones. This large number of bands flooded many local rock music scenes playing to local audiences and eventually recording in small local studios.

Very few of these bands were able to break through to a national market but many of them enjoyed great success in their local scene. It was only years later the phenomenon became known as Garage Rock due to a large number of bands practicing in a garage or small practice studio.

A few select bands got a chance to play to a national audience when record labels started making compilation albums featuring one original song from a large number of artists. Two of the better known groups of this style are The Sonics and The Standells.
