Never heard of Noah and the Whale or Echo and the Bunneymen. Most of the others were great groups.

I'm so happy to see The Monkees rated #3!! That's pretty darn close to #1! My big brother was crazy about the Beatle songs and would always want me to watch their cartoon with him. And by the time The Monkees hit the TV Screens, man, we had found 'our show!' I'll have to create a blog about it and all my Monkee Adventures I had. REALLY! I loved all these bands. Man, those really were 'the good ol' days!' Thnx soooooo much for creating another trip down Barb's Memory Lane Cher!

Interesting and fun but Steppenwolf was not named for a wolf rather the novel by Hermann Hesse from the 1920's. I wish the Animals and some others had made it, they sure started off great.

Absolutely love the Eagles, and the Beatles when they were together. Also loved the 'Monkees . Brings back some memories of my girls enjoying these groups, but my memories are still with the Big Bands of 1940 - 1950 and a little later along came Elvis (his group - band and singers were with him all his years of fame). But of course he was not named after an animal - but boy he sure had animal attraction. lol.
Thanks Cher.
