Hitweek was the most important Dutch underground magazine of the 1960s. What started as an amateurish newspaper grew into the favourite magazine of a generation. Hitweek often wrote about pop music from the Netherlands - consistently called Nederbeat. Groups such as Les Baroques, Motions, Golden Earrings, Outsiders, Q’65 and Cuby and the Blizzards owe their fame partly to this magazine. The magazine also regularly published a blacklist of schools, businesses and bars and restaurants that discriminated against long-haired people; an idea by Muller who founded the Pro Long Hair Foundation in 1966. The magazine also wrote about fashion and included many letters from readers.
