The Monkees were huge in the mid-1960s. For two years, they had the number one show in the country and kept topping the music charts. After, the television show came to an end the popularity of the band quickly declined. Over the course of 3 years, Davy Jones, Mickey Dolenz, Peter Tork, and Michael Nesmith disbanded. However, The Monkees regained popularity in the mid-80s because of constant replaying on MTV and Nickelodeon. A few years later, The Ben Stiller Show would combine The Monkees’ newly found pop culture relevance with the Seattle sound. This brilliant parody of The Monkees and grunge even has an appearance from Mickey Dolenz.
