Encyclopedia > Beat music

Beat, also known as Merseybeat (for bands from Liverpool), Brumbeat (for bands from Birmingham) etc., is a pop music genre that evolved in the UK in the early 1960s. Beat groups characteristically had simple guitar-dominated line-ups, with vocal harmonies and catchy tunes.
