We have read about the the neuroscience of music and researched the songs that inspired The Beatles’ success. Now here is a brief, and happily biased, history of brilliant British rock. From the 60s British invasion bands The Beatles, Rolling Stones and The Kinks, to psychedelic, Peter Green blues, to glam, progressive, punk, heavy metal, alternative, new wave, gothic, Brit Pop, indie pop-rock and experimental electronica. Featuring David Bowie, T.Rex, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, The Smiths and The Cure, Echo & The Bunnymen, Peter Murphy, Blur and Oasis, Muse and Radiohead, this playlist maps out how the generations of rock music relate.
