The American rock band the Monkees are still known today for being one of the most innovative and original rock bands to ever hit the American stage, even with their highly unusual beginnings. When they first came together in the 1960’s they were formed for the American television series title The Monkees, a hit program that aired until 1968. In the show, the band played a quartet of the same name who were supposed to be an imaginary group looking for success like The Beatles, only to find that their success would never come. However, as art began imitating life, the group soon transitioned into a real band and started developing their own fans and their own unique sound that garnered them a great deal of success in the United States.
