Do what? Have you been at the sherry already? Leaving aside the emerging Motown (founded in 1960) scene here is a list of bands that were playing when the Monkees were formed. You could argue that they were the first Boy Band since they were selected by a management team to appeal to girls who were already screaming and throwing their panties at this lot...
The Beatles (too many to list)
The Rolling Stones (Satisfaction)
The Kinks (You Really Got me, All the day, All the night)
The Zombies (She's Not There, Tell Her No)
The Dave Clark 5 (Glad All Over, Bits and Pieces. Do You Love me)
The Troggs (Wild Thing)
The Supremes (Stop, in the Name of Love, Baby Love)
The Yardbirds (Heart full of Soul)
Spencer Davis Group (Gimme Some Lovin, I'm a Man)
The 4 Seasons (sherry)
The Beach Boys (409, Fun, Fun, Fun and many more)
Jan & Dean (Surf City, Little old lady from Pasadena)
The Ronettes (main competitor to The Supremes)
The Animals (Don't Bring Me down, House of the Rising Sun and more)
Unfortunately TI D, like many others, you miss the nuances of their particular style of music.
For example, who could deny that "I'm a believer" was the inspiration behind "Stairway to Heaven" (as performed by Rolf Harris)?
