The Swinging Blue Jeans are a five piece 1960s British merseybeat band, best known for their proto-rave-up hit single "Hippy Hippy Shake". Intriguingly, while "Hippy Hippy Shake" sounds rather Beatles-clone like, The Beatles did in fact do a cover version of this song for the BBC. The beat group had a three year spell of moderate success, flying along with the all-pervading merseybeat success story. Once the novelty started to pale, the hits dried up, and the band eventually retired to the oldies circuit.
