Best Bands of the 60srock2metal
The Contenders: Page 4XW
Anyone else remember a little song called "In-A-Gadda-the-Vida"? First band to have an album go platinum in the USA? Pioneers of psychedelic/heavy/acid rock?
Love the band but saying that they're the creators of heavy rock is a overstatement. Bands like Cream were much heavier than them in the sixties.
The creators of hard and heavy rock.
Listen to them!V1 Comment
"Along comes Mary" is my favorite and that was also the name of my first crush..V1 Comment
They surely deserved better placement
I don't much about them other then Friday On My Mind but man that's a great song.
England had The Beatles, America had The Beach boys and Australia had The Easybeats. the Easybeats were an incredibly talented band, The lead singer Stevie wright, was the most entertaining singer and dancer of the 60s, I encourage to watch on YouTube Friday on my mind 1967 live on French T.V. , it will make your day.
They were Australia's Beatles, An incredibly talented band, had quite a few good songs 'sorry' is one of my favourites. but the band didn't really get all that much recognition overseas, like many other great Aussie rock bands. if you ever get a chance go on YouTube and watch Friday on my mind live on French T.V. , The lead singer Stevie wright, is one of the most awesome performers I've seen in rock n roll, check it out you won't disappointed.
Incredible band of the late 60's. Should be in the top 20 without question. I put them in top 10. No one sounded like Jethro Tull! Benefit and Stand Up were two early albums that led up to Aqualung, a ground breaking album of its time. That was followed by Thick as a Brick, which was also revolutionary.
Love this band. Innovators of their time. Should be in top 20 of all time best bands.
Very unique sound. A blend of blues, folk, jazz, and experimental infused into their own enchanting rock music formula. You can't hear them play their materpieces and simply turn around!
The kid is right! If you haven't listened to The Band yet, you have really missed out. I was lucky enough to see them in 1974 when they toured with Dylan. The tightest rock band in the business. They traded off the vocals like nobody else in rock and roll. And then there is the organist, Garth Hudson, a one of a kind!
This one deserves number 1 it is really an amazing band respected by all musicians, bob dylan, eric clapton,.. When you listen to them and you hear the lyrics, they are really meaningfull and when you add epic guitar solos, fantastic piano, organ,.. And AMAZING vocals I'm not only speaking about levon helm and rick danko butt also about richard manuel, who has really the best voice that I EVER heard! They have to be number 1 please vote for them they are really amazing! If you are scrolling down and reading this and don't know who they are search on YouTube! Respect for te band! And rip Levon, Rick and Richard! Sorry if my English was bad I'm a Belgian, 14 year old boy!

When I was a kid I bought the BLIND FAITH album.
Listen to "Do What You Like" It is a long song but you will love it.
Would not get away with a 13 year old girl half naked on the album cover now. well alright greatV1 Comment
Before the Byrds there were the Searchers. Needles and Pins, When You Walk into the Room, Don't Throw You're Love Away and What Have They Done to the Rain are some of the most beautifully underrated songs of the decade.
Early 60s English soft beat group from England but Doub't they had any influence on the Byrds phychedelic sound of the mid 60's..V1 Comment
Tracy, is their best song. I still love it.
More than just WIld Thing...
Fantastic songs and singers, probably the top 10 in the '60s... I WAS THERE. A time when people danced and were in love, THESE were the songs that melted hearts.
The greatest girl group of all time.
