During the mod revival, The Jam, fronted by Paul Weller, became known as one of the best mod bands. Their songs and fashion sense replicated what made the mod movement so popular in England in the first place. Though close to punk rock, The Jam's sound consisted - like early Who - R&B, beat music, psychedelic rock and soul.
