Most underrated bands of all time

1- The Monkees.

Yep, so they didn't write most of their songs. Yep, so they didn't play most of they instruments. Yep, they were a manufactured "Boy Band".

So what? The quality of the songs was tremendous. "Daydream believer" is an all-time classic pop song, brilliantly realised- like many of their other releases. And they could write great songs too- Mike Nesmith's "Just might be the one" is one of my favourite pop sogs of the 60's.

And when the rest of the world stopped paying attention, they made "Head", which proved they could do great original work, could do satire, and really didn't take themselves too seriously.
