Le Merseybeat est une variante du rock and roll et de la Beat music, apparu au début des années 1950 à Liverpool, du nom du fleuve qui traverse la ville. A l'origine, ce sont les marins qui ramenaient des pays étrangers le rock d'Amérique du Nord.

Parmi les groupes issus de ce courant musical, on peut citer The Searchers, Gerry & The Pacemakers, Billy J. Kramer & the Dakotas, The Mojos, The Big Three, The Swinging Blue Jeans, Rory Storm & the Hurricanes, Kingsize Taylor & the Dominoes, Howie Casey & the Seniors, The Merseybeats et surtout, The Beatles.

Le temple du merseybeat était le Cavern Club où se produisaient régulièrement tous ces groupes. Sa bible était le magazine Merseybeat.
