In 1964, the Beatles occupied the top five slots in Billboard magazine's Top 100 - an achievement never rivalled to this day- and ushered in the British invasion of the US. They were also one of the first groups to write their own songs and America's answerto the subsequent wave of bands such as the Rolling Stones, the Kinks and the Animals came in the shape of the Beach Boys, the Byrds and, of course, Bob Dylan.
