    Band-off: The Beatles vs. The Monkees

    The similarities are too much to ignore. 4 guys in each band. The same instruments in each band. Both named after some creature, with an unusual spelling. To me it's a coin flip.

    Dude...this is classified. I know you are Big Stuff, but wow.

    It's like you're on a mission to open people's eyes; no matter the personal sacrifice.

    No. I'm as serious as a blue-balled twentysomething who couldn't get laid at a fat camp for ugly chicks.

    That's the kind of statement only made by someone who has been forced to jack off so much that his pecker looks like a bicycle grip.

    The big difference is Mike Nesmith wore a knit winter hat, advantage Monkees.

    No comparison on the complete body of work, but there are a handful of Monkees tracks that are very good, really were well crafted, written by some of the top 60's writers and performed by some of the top 60's musicians.

    "Pleasant Valley Sunday" being the prime example.
