TheBritishInvasion helped cement British artists as big players in the international market. As such many bands or singers found in American media will turn out British. They're generally of the Metal or Rock genre with [[ImpossiblyTackyClothes horrible fashion sense]], who [[SexDrugsAndRockAndRoll take lots of drugs, drink lots of booze]], have [[TheCasanova incredibly high sexual tallies]] (often [[AnythingThatMoves going for the weird stuff]], too), [[TrashTheSet trash hotel rooms]] and [[ApplianceDefenestration throw TVs out the window]], and are either indifferent or throwing themselves behind [[CharityMotivationSong whatever good cause]] [[ProtestSong might be available]]. Pierced nose and spiky mohawk optional.

* Very early example - the Creator/AmericanInternationalPictures movie ''Bikini Beach'' (1964) had Frankie Avalon playing pop star Potato Bug (a ShallowParody of a [[UsefulNotes/TheBritishInvasion British Invasion]] pop star) in very cringe-worthy IAmVeryBritish mode (apparently all Britons acted like Creator/TerryThomas at the time.)
