The Monkees were never taken seriously as musicians but the music they made was universally loved. When they debuted, many of their peers considered them a joke. They were a watered down knock-off of Beatlemania. A cheap magician’s trick on the American public. Five decades later, the joke’s on everyone else. The Monkees may not be the greatest rock n roll band…they may not even crack the top 100…200…maybe even 500. But the one thing they are is iconic. And that’s something very few bands have ever achieved.
