1960’s script – Music

The 1960’s, commonly known as the swinging sixties is perhaps best associated with the birth and huge popularity of british pop music and fashion.

With artists such as The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix and The Doors spearheading the social revolution that swept the nation.

Youth culture, something which had been repressed previously, exploded out into the public domain, especially with arguably the biggest youth moment in british history, the hippie movement.

The younger generation used their emotions and anger about repressive society they were surrounded by, and protested through the use of music.

The Vietnam War caused large number of young people across the UK and America to protest against war and promote the idea of freedom and peace.
