Best Bands of the 60srock2metal

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!
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.
Great instrumental music. They had the most hits behind elvis and the Beatles in the UK.
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 greatV 1 Comment
Roger Nichols is a brilliant songwriter.
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!V 1 Comment
"Along comes Mary" is my favorite and that was also the name of my first crush..V 1 Comment
Tracy, is their best song. I still love it.
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.
I love rush. They didn't release their first album until 1974
Greatest band of the sixties era and regarded as the first psyhcadelic band in the U. SV 1 Comment
They didn't make an album in the 60s, they still started then though, but I see them as a 70s band
One of the best concerts I ever went to.
Black Sabbath not a 60s band
Certainly one of the greatest rock bands ever, but, their first album came out in 70', so, they can't possibly be considered a 60's band. - cptron
Greats song part of the union
