|Cultural origins||Mid 1960s, Great Britain|
Freakbeat is the music of certain harder-driving British rock bands, often those with a mod following during the Swinging London period of the mid to late 1960s. The term was coined by English music journalist Phil Smee. Much of the material collected on Rhino Records's 2001 box-set compilation Nuggets II: Original Artyfacts from the British Empire and Beyond, 1964-1969 can be classified as freakbeat.
