You can split the music of the sixties and the American music scene into three periods: pre-British invasion; British Invasion and aftermath; and late sixties. Because this question is not concerned with the early sixties (1960–1963) I won’t address them in this answer. Other British bands like the Who or the Kinks were not quite as popular in the states; though they were certainly not unknown or unpopular, they just didn’t tear up the charts (and when you talk about winning, that must be what you mean, right? Surely you’re not one of these fools that think human expression is a rankable thing?)
