Best Bands of the 60srock2metal
The Contenders: Page 3
These guys along with Iggy Pop and the Stooges completely destroyed almost every band they came across just like The Who did to the Rolling Stones! Apparently from what's going around they played so awesome that the more popular band Cream felt like they were 1-upped. Who do you think would win though, 1970s' Who, or MC5?
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.V 1 Comment
One top hit album and they are considered? Well, yes
Stevie Nicks knocked it out of the arena! Loved their concerts.V 1 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".
Come on guys Gary puckett, s got to be the best male vocal of the 60s awesome.
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.

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...

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.V 1 Comment
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.V 1 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.V 1 Comment
Instrumental and lyrical geniuses!
A great emotional band, they produced some great music.
Blue world ever think you may be in a masonic story?V 1 Comment
Pictures of Matchstick Men was a number 1 hit in 60s. Admittedly, most of their best material was in the 70s, but they started over 50 years ago and still going (just)! Should be in top 20.
This must be a British poll.
Sold more records/cd's than either The Beatles or The Stones. Gotta be worth something?
Only other Liverpool group to rival The Fab Four.V 1 Comment
They surely deserved better placement
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!
Best roots rock band ever. just listen to the brown album
The Weight, best song ever!V 2 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.
