Saborlas: Also, the last time a band debuted with a song that introduced the band itself, to go on to anything even remotely resembling fame... well, that band was called the Monkees, and they were a blatant ripoff of the Beatles. Made up entirely of actors (assembled by audition) who never actually played their instruments. So, we're not exactly talking about a band with a future, here. Or even a present, really.

Mikey1969: For those who are not as brave(or stupid) as I am, the song is actually WORSE than the plastic surgery results. At least the first 15 seconds after the intro is.

Mike Nesmith was a musician and wrote and produced some of the music. Peter Tork played guitar on some of the albums, too. And Mickey Dolenz had a great voice. I wouldn't call them a Beatles rip-off; they were just a very well-produced, mid-60s pop group, more like the Byrds or the Mommas and the Papas than the Beatles.

They've sold 65 million albums to date, and have three hits that are still in frequent play all over the world, so your argument is in valid.

But the Monkees are the reason Roddenberry cast Walter Koenig, so without their ripping off the Beatles, we wouldn't have Checkov.

I gave my 13yr old papergirl all my original Monkee singles back in the mid 80s when they had a resugence in popularity, because she was nuts about them.
Turned out a few of them were worth 20some bucks each at the time - didn't care about that and neither did she.

Fark has a pretty rabid Monkees fanbase, so I gotta wonder if Saborlas is just trollbaiting.  Also, LOTS of bands are assembled by auditions. And Mike Nesmith punched a hole in the wall during a meeting with record co execs... can't get much more rock-n-roll than that.

Really? An 80's band influenced Devo, who were formed in 1972?  Odd that I can't find any reference to the other bands suggesting they were influenced by the plastics either.

One of the members of Devo was on the Kent State campus during the shootings in 1970 though.

http://clubdevo.com/news/item/4782-kent-state.html

Also, if Devo, Talking Heads, the B-52s, and Sigue Sigue Sputnik we're so influenced by the plastics, then why does their wikipedia page list the most notable bands who have covered their music as, "Polysics, Pizzicato Five, and Stereo Total." You'd think if someone was a big influence to you, you'd want to pay some sort of homage to them.
