The break with the past in 1964 does seem more complete than subsequent big changes. The charts were suddenly full of inanely grinning beat combos. But I think that if you looked at the singles charts you'd never detect the other great upheavals such as punk, dance and hip hop. Maybe because in 64 everyone buying pop singles were of the same age but later there were enough mums and dads and older brothers and sisters buying records to keep the charts occupied by Shaking Sevens and Racey. rock had splintered and had so many different audiences that 1964 just couldn't happen again
