What?!? No true Beatles fan can have anything but contempt for these shitty knock-offs!
they werent trying to be the Beatles. they were a TV SHOW who were marketed that way. and they just happened to have good songs written for them, and they just happened to be able to play instruments. and I will love them forever. they are an important part of my childhood!!!
Sorry; the Monkees 100% suck ass, no matter how American or Mancunian they are.
My mom loved the Monkees. And the Beatles.
Sorry, Corrissey. I'm not suggesting you're my mom's age, she's much, much older than you.
