The British Invasion was a cultural phenomenon in the mid-1960s whereby rock singers with British accents enjoyed popularity in the United States.

The more famous bands were the Beatles, the Rolling Stones, the Animals, the Hollies, and Herman's Hermits. Individual singers included Petula Clark and Dusty Springfield.

The Bee Gees, which are more closely associated with the rise of disco music in the mid-1970s, are also considered part of this phenomenon.
