1964 When it all began to change
Names of rock bands that sound like many of today but are not. They were bands from the UK that followed the greatest of them all, TheBeatles, in 1964, over 45 years ago.

Their themes ranged from silly love songs to seriouslove songs (You Can't Do that, If I Fell, This Boy) and non-love themes.
