THE BRITS HAVE INVADED AGAIN
In 1994, the BRITPOP craze that was taking place in England was crossing over to the US. Bands like Blur, Oasis, and Suede were emerging the British alternative music that was influenced by the British guitar pop music of the 1960's and 70's. Further, these bands wrote about strictly British topics and issues, a sort of anti-grunge notion that was taking place there at the time. The crossover was so present in the US that Blur's song "Girls and Boys" was blaring in the clubs of New York in the Summer of 94.
