    10 pages of legitimately worthwhile and compelling choices but none that quite match this, my go-to list in terms of most airplay:

    The Rolling Stones
    The Beatles
    The Yardbirds
    The Zombies
    The Searchers

    The Who, The Kinks, The Animals, and Cream bubble just ever-so-slightly under...

    Accidentally, deleted Pink Floyd when re-editing my Post, so Correction is below:

    Pink Floyd
    The Kinks
    The Rolling Stones
    The Beatles
    Cream

    *I love The Who, but not much from the '60s, so only starting with 'Tommy' and mostly The Lifehouse Project Music and everything from 'Who's Next, 'Quadrophenia',(2 of my All Time Favorite Rock Albums) and also 'Who by Numbers' and 'Who's Next'.

    Troggs-They tend not to make it onto many favorites lists of this sort, but they did a ton of good songs.

    They formed in 68. Granted, the first album was released in 70. If I can't count Sabbath, then I'll substitute Fleetwood Mac pre Stevie Nicks.

    I prefer Spencer Davis Group. Could be an interesting thread in itself.

    Led Zeppelin formed in 1968. Their first album came out in January, 1969. No doubt a 1960s band. I saw them live in 1969.
