Beat Happening is an American indie pop band from Olympia, Washington. They are an influential band in the lo-fi and twee pop movements. Their lead singer, Calvin Johnson, was one of the founders of seminal independent label K Records, which was Kurt Cobain's favorite label.

Beat Happening provides examples of:

  • Crowning Moment of Heartwarming: "Our Secret"
  • Does This Remind You of Anything?: Though "Indian Summer" sounds innocent and somewhat childish, it features a few surprisingly suggestive lyrics, such as "I'll drink from your drain" and "boy tasting wild cherry".
    • These lyrics may simply be aligned with the puerile capriciousness and innocence of the song.
  • Fiery Redhead: "Red Head Walking"
  • Magnum Opus: Jamboree or You Turn Me On
  • New Sound Album: 1993's You Turn Me On is a huge departure from the soft twee pop of Jamboree, especially on "Godsend," a 9-minute droning riff-based song.
  • Signature Song: "Bewitched" or "Indian Summer"
