They were considered the second british invasion
According to the RIAA, they are the best-selling band in the United States, with 177 million certified units.
They hold the record for most number-one hits on the Hot 100 chart with 20.
Plus the Beatles received 7 Grammy Awards, an Academy Award for Best Original Song Score and 15 Ivor Novello Awards. Pop culture defined the 60's. But the driving force was the Vietnam War. The Vietnam War spawwned the counter culture. Hippies, as this new culture was called, were different from the previous generation that followed rules and norms and believed what their Government told them.
By the 1960's most homes had television and as a result the Vietnam War became the first "televised" war. As a result this new generation grew up seeing the violence and death of war, and with the draft still in place, broke away and went against the war with the motto of "Make love, Not war..."
Throughout the sixties music was hugely influenced by this counter culture. Folk groups and rock groups such as Bob Dylan, Crosby,Stills & Nash, Mammas & Pappas performed anti war songs.
The signature event of the Hippie movement was Woodstock.
A free, three day concert that went through the nights was held near Woodstock, New York on a dairy farm. Many of the most popular performers played to a mob of Hippies. It was called Woodstock.

"We were ready to rock out and we waited and waited and finally it was our turn ... there were a half million people asleep. These people were out. It was sort of like a painting of a Dante scene, just bodies from hell, all intertwined and asleep, covered with mud.And this is the moment I will never forget as long as I live: a quarter mile away in the darkness, on the other edge of this bowl, there was some guy flicking his Bic, and in the night I hear, 'Don't worry about it John. We're with you.' I played the rest of the show for that guy."—John Fogerty recalling Creedence Clearwater Revival's 12:30 am start time at Woodstock
