The band was instrumental in the development of the Counterculture of the 1960s and the appreciation of popular music as a form of art. Credited with pioneering the British Invasion of the United States pop industry, the band became an international hit by 1964. In the course of that, they produced such hit albums as the following:

  • “Revolver” (1966)
  • “ Rubber Soul” (1965)
  • “Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band”  (1967)

Between the second half of the 20th Century to the first half of the 21st Century, they have been regarded as the best-selling music act; selling over 600 million sold records globally, and 183 million units sold in the US. In 1968, the group was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, while all main members were individually inducted from 1994 to 2015. As of 2020, the band has received four Brit Awards, fifteen Ivor Novello Awards, and seven Grammy Awards.
