Top Tens by Decade - The 1960s

Recommended Posts

Ah, but he chose what is probably the #1 one hit wonder of all time. I love Zep, I love Heartbreaker, but if we're talking best of the 60's ... that was probably a great calculated move. :thumbsup: I'm considering something similar as well.

But I kinda was gonna vote for Led Zeppelin, maybe I should change my nominations as well :shades:

"KICK OUT THE JAMS" MC5

1969 MC5... DETROIT, MICHIGAN...PIONEERS OF THE PUNK ROCK MOVEMENT. I WAS JUST A LAD THEN, BUT REMEMBER WELL.

Arguably one of the first alternative songs ever made, and one that many later artists got their influence from. Welcome to Songfacts, Clash :)

Maybe you should at that. ;)

Personally, I was originally going to nominate Wipe Out anyway. Plus I kind of started thinking in terms of songs that typify the decade, which for the Rolling Stones, the other two noms probably do that more, at least in my mind. We may have to go with Martin's idea of a poll to determine nominations. :D

Oh and hey, welcome to SF, Clash, and to the Top Tens. Check out the regular weekly Ten as well, if you like!

My Generation -- The Who (1965)

The first song I ever heard by them, even though I didn't appreciate it very much

You nominated that over anything from Tommy, I'm guessing you nominate something from Who's Next for the 70's list.
