Best Bands of the 60srock2metal
The Contenders: Page 3
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
Besides possibly Stevie Wonder the Four Tops sang with more passion and zeal then any of the other Motown Acts. Their singing can give me chills.V 1 Comment
I can't understand why this guy isn't number one, he was clearly the best singer of the sixties if not ever and all the guys were extremely talented, at least they played their own instruments unlike many of that time.
Come on guys Gary puckett, s got to be the best male vocal of the 60s awesome.
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! 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...
They need to be top 30!
I love This Band The Songs are Soothing I love One Joy To the World Shambala An Old Fashioned Love song and Black and White I was Lucky to meet Jimmy Cory and Chuck on FB; They are so Sweet! I am Shocked to Hear about Cory He was so Kind and Sweet and was Kind HeartedV 3 Comments
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
Great band, hugely under-rated. Good crash, bang, wallop rock and some great soft stuff. RIP Reg and Ronnie.
More than just WIld Thing...
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.
Should be up in the Top 15 at least.
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.
