Cool Britannia was a period of increased pride in the culture of the United Kingdom throughout most of the 1990s inspired by 1960s pop culture. A change of government from many years of Conservative rule to "New Labour" under Tony Blair and the success of Britpop and musical acts such as the Spice Girls led to a renewed feeling of optimism in the United Kingdom following the tumultuous years of the 1970s and 1980s. It is a pun on the title of the British patriotic song "Rule, Britannia!".
