Popular ("Pop") Culture in the 1960's

"A rock group called the Beatles landed in America in 1964 starting a revolution that swept through music and fashion.  The counterculture steadily increased in influence and visibility with long hair, beads and psychedelic clothing becoming more prevalent.  Young people experimented with communal living, free love, and alternate types of spirituality...In all of these ways and more, the 1960s changed the popular culture of the United States dramatically and permanently."
