Later period and borderline garage bands (1967 to 1979)[edit]

The bands listed were often considered garage rock, but also straddled the line with other genres such as punk, psychedelia, blues rock, power pop, hard rock, bubblegum, glam, prog rock, protopunk, art rock or even heavy metal. Many similar British bands of this era (1965-1979) were retrospectively called "Freakbeat" and pub rock.

1980-present garage rock revival bands[edit]

Some of these bands overlap with punk, the mod revival, psychobilly, new wave, the Paisley Underground, indie rock, indie pop, neo-psychedelia, power pop, punk blues, noise rock/noisepop, garage punk, Britpop, grunge, hard rock and even riot grrl, queercore or traditional heavy metal.
