Antiwar protests, hippies, wild fads fashions and entertainment - the times were a changing in this "psychedelic" decade. Many psychedelic bands moved away from standard rock rhythms and instrumentation. The Grateful Dead of San Francisco played a mix of country rock, blues, and acid R&B, Jefferson Airplane sang of the hallucinatory delights of an acid trip in the 1967 Top Ten hit "White Rabbit."

In Los Angeles the band Love played whimsical, free-flowing rock. Also from Los Angeles, the Byrds created a jangly psychedelic folk with such hits as "Eight Miles High" and "Mr. Tambourine Man," The Jimi Hendrix played Woodstock and did a version of the American Star Spangled Banner that descended into fighter planes and bomb sound effects made with his guitar.

A series of bands came from the British blues scene including Pink Floyd, Traffic, Soft Machine and Cream and clubs such as UFO in London played host to psychedelic 'happenings'.
