In the January 25, 1964 edition of Cash Box magazine, The Beatles' "I Want to Hold Your Hand" reached number one on the chart; it did the same on Billboard's February 1 chart. On February 7, the CBS Evening News ran a story about the Beatles' United States arrival that afternoon in which the correspondent said "The British Invasion this time goes by the code name Beatlemania".

Two days later (Sunday, February 9) they appeared on The Ed Sullivan Show. Nielsen Ratings estimated that 45 percent of Americans watched the show. On April 4, the Beatles held the top 5 positions on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart, and to date no other act has accomplished this feat. The group's massive chart success continued until they broke up in 1970.

One week later, Dusty Springfield, became the next British act to reach the Hot 100, with "I Only Want to Be With You", which fell just short of the top 10. She soon followed up with several other hits, becoming what Allmusic described as "the finest white soul singer of her era".

 During the next two years or so, Chad & Jeremy, Peter and Gordon, The Animals, Manfred Mann, Petula Clark, Freddie and the Dreamers, Wayne Fontana and the Mindbenders, Herman's Hermits, The Rolling Stones, The Troggs, and Donovan would have one or more number one singles. Other Invasion acts included The Dave Clark Five, The Searchers, Danny Williams, Billy J. Kramer, The Bachelors, Gerry and the Pacemakers, The Honeycombs, Them, and Sounds Orchestral. On 8 May 1965 the Britain came closer than it ever had or would to a clean sweep of a weekly Hot 100's Top 10, lacking only a hit at #2. British Invasion acts also dominated the music charts at home in the United Kingdom.

British Invasion artists played in styles now categorized either as blues-based rock music or as guitar-driven rock/pop. A second wave of the invasion occurred featuring acts such as The Who, The Zombies, and The Hollies, which were influenced by the invasion's pop side and American rock music. The musical style of British Invasion artists, such as the Beatles, was influenced by earlier American rock and roll, a genre which had lost some popularity and appeal by the time of the Invasion. White British performers essentially revived a musical genre rooted in black American culture.
