The band's most famous song was its first U.S. release, "Glad All Over," reaching number 6 during the so-called British invasion of 1964. The same year, "Because," reached number 3 and "Can't You See That She is Mine" reached number 4. For a brief period, the musical press looked at the band as the Beatles' main rivals. Though the Dave Clark Five never fulfilled its early promise, the band did go onto make more appearances on the Ed Sullivan Show than any other British band during that period.
Unlike many other British groups during the '60s, it struggled to become more than just a singles band, however, and eventually split up in 1970 due to lack of success. According to All Music, it was one of the few bands to produce its own songs and albums.Learn more about Art & Literature
