Best Bands of the 60srock2metal

This list is a joke if Steppenwolf isn't on it. They have one thing that almost no other bands from the 60s has 2 immortal songs: Born to Be Wild and Magic Carpet ride. I mean everyone has at least heard one of those two song once in their life and if you think you haven't look them up and you'll find that you have.
They made the 60s look like how we look at it today, hard rock and psychedelic
Steppenwolf is kinda underrated in this list.V1 Comment
A massive band, top tunes - definitely should be in top 10 :-)
He is the best he has only been forgotten. with the internet people will find him, and his voice. THE SMALL FACES
The Small Faces Should be number 1 Steve Marriot & Ronnie Lane wrote music just as good as the beatles and better then the stones or the kinks they had a sound like no other band and marriot had the most amazeing voice so small faces best band of the 60sV2 Comments
They are not an all time band for sure but for 2 years they had some great singles like Green Grass, She's Just My Style, Count Me In and especially This Diamond Ring, which can go toe to toe with any other great songs from the 60s.V1 Comment
One top hit album and they are considered? Well, yes
Stevie Nicks knocked it out of the arena! Loved their concerts.V1 Comment
Haha the only song anyone remembers is "For What It's Worth". It's even on Forrest Gump.
They were great with there song stop hey whats that sound
The song was called "For What It's Worth".
This must be a British poll.
Come on! Is this a joke? Who was The Jackson 5 in the sixties? Even if they existed nobody cared back then. They were just a minor act of the Motown group.

Best band ever! They did not write disco songs. The media made them into disco. Their songs are timeless and will live forever! Such innovative songs! The blend of the three voices is pure heaven! Plus each one has a beautiful solo voice!
BEST BAND EVER! Anybody think of "Massachusetts or "I Started a Joke? " How about "Holiday? " WHAT ABOUT ROBIN GIBB?
Robin has such a beautiful voice... Should be #1!
Holiday or To love somebody are one of the best songs from 60sV5 Comments
Slade is no way a 60's band but I love them anyway!
Their first album came out in 1969 ( then under the name " Ambrose Slade " ). Before that they were called " The In-Be-Tweens " and made some singles under that name. But besides those facts I concider them as a 70's band.
Come on guys Gary puckett, s got to be the best male vocal of the 60s awesome.
I loved this band. Top 20 on my list. Rob Grill was an awesome lead singer! They really had their own sound. R.I.P Rob Grill 2011.V1 Comment
This band and Chicago I just loved. They were my favorite instrumental groups. Also, the lead singer for Blood, Sweat & Tears, was excellent. I don't know his name. Where can I find it? Where can I hear a recording?
I think of this band's sound when I think of the late 60's.
David Clayton Thomas was the lead singer...
A great novelty band, but their hit songs speak for themselves. Should be in the Rock and Roll Hall of fame. RIP Paul.
Should be much higher than this.V1 Comment
They had so many hits on the radio, True American early 60, s band should be high on the list.. One of my favorite bands as a kid...
Too many hits to list but my favorites were Eli's Coming/Mama told me not to Come/One/Joy to the World...
One of the best. Can't believe they are #78
