    well you could start your own polls. Best solo artist of the various decades. I bet people would enjoy that.

    I thought Cream and Led Zepplin were 1970s bands, not 1960s bands.

    You might want to engage in a little fact checking first, Ken.

    Cream released its first album in 1966 and broke up in 1968. Fresh Cream was released in 1966; Disraeli Gears in 1967; Wheels of Fire in 1968; and Goodbye in 1969. All that came out in the 70s were live albums and compilations.

    You're closer to the mark with Zeppelin, although their first two albums were released in 1969.

    Oops on Cream, I don't know why I associated them with the 1970s instead of the 1960s. I miss the 1960s room they used to have at Club Bang in Hollywood.

    The obvious right answer to this question is The Beatles.

    I agree with Andrew. that 50% of the voters have not, however, is telling.

    The Byrds covering William Bell.....fan-fucking-tastic.
    The "Rodeo" album is just so superb all the way through; I've been known to belt out "The Christian Life" on many a drunken evening

    Here's a debate for the initiated: "Sweethearts of the Rodeo" vs. "The Gilded Palace of Sin"???

    As for this poll question, of course the answer is the Beatles, so that is why I had to give my vote to the Beach Boys. If Brian Wilson had ever had a consistent writing partner that was half as good as Lennon or McCartney, I think the 60's musical scene would have shaped up differently. Yes, I know that Wilson had Van Dyke Parks and Roger Christian before that (don't even get me started on Mike Love's contributions...) but had someone just been there with Wilson throughout his whole mid-60's journey...but, alas.

    outstanding question. Outstanding.

    I'm inclined to go with GPOS, if only because it has a lot more Parsons orginials (plus 'Hot Burrito #1' is like the greatest song ever). But I think I'm going to use this question as an excuse to listen to both albums back to back this afternoon to refresh my memory.

    It's amazing that the WHo, ROlling Stones and the Beach BOys so far only have two votes each.

    The Rolling Stones suck. If they'd quit in 1969, then they could maybe warrant consideration (as "Aftermath" is their only good album). Or was that part of the criteria?

    Also, I wouldn't have minded seeing King Crimson on this list.

    Yeah, it's a bit hard to argue against the long-lasting influence the Beatles had on music as compared to any of their peers, except perhaps the Velvet Undeground within our Coachella bubble.

    It's a shame the Kinks didn't release that song about the tranny until 1970.

    I agree with you for the very same reasoning, but Hot Burrito #2, with its "Jesus Christ" refrain, juts nails it, in my opinion.

    I am not amazed at all...I mean this question does have a fairly straightforward answer (unless you try to be funny like me). Do I really believe the Beach Boys were the better band for the entire decade? No. Now that I am in my mid-30's though, I find that I'd rather listen to them on most days than listen to the Beatles....but that's just probably due to over-exposure to the former.....

    Pet Sounds is a phenomenal piece of music. Had Smile been released in the 60s, it would be just as highly regarded. The Who put out two records in the 60s that I consider 100% stone cold classics (Sell Out, Tommy). The Stones had some good ones, especially in the late 60s. But The Beatles made at least 6 (I would argue more) totally classic records in the 1960s.



    I don't know what I am arguing, but I felt like doing it. I am going to bed now.

    In the 60s the Who were more of a singles band. "I Can't Explain", "Magic Bus", "Substitute", etc don't show up on any of their albums. Which is why I consider Meaty Beaty Big and Bouncy to be the Who's third 'stone cold classic' of the 60s even though it's a compilation.

    When did the "single" become such a bad word anyway? The Beatles, Stones and The Who all regularly release fantastic singles and the goal was to get radio play. Listen to The Who's "Live At Leeds" and here Pete talk about what chart position a certain song attained. Somewhere along the line, trying to write a great song and get radio rotation became "selling out". I think it's too bad and I really think it's what killed radio (along with "format" radio).

    Not that anyone cares, but I collect unscoped radio airchecks from the 50's, 60's and 70's. Yesterday, for instance, as I was cleaning out my garage, I listened to a KHJ/Real Don Steele (L.A.) aircheck from July 1967. Lee Greenwood, The Beatles, Stevie Wonder, Buffalo Springfield all within an hour. Format radio does not allow for such things anymore and I think it sucks.

    Sorry for the vent; had to be done.
