For the far-reaching impact and cultural significance, The Beatles win by a country mile. But The Rolling Stones, The Who and The Kinks all tie in for second place in my opinion.

The Beatles - hands down. But they did have strong competition.

In the early 1960s I became a big fan of The Dave Clark Five and the Beach Boys before I began really digging The Beatles. I am a little bit embarassed to own up to being a fan of Herman´s Hermits and Gary Lewis and the Playboys also, for a short while. I matured and became a fan of Hendrix and The Cream when they turned up later in the decade.

Rollings were goood. The Who is kinda 60's music trademark for me. Really can't decide. Really like Beatles too.

If we're talking about only 60's:

1.The Beatles
2.The Doors
3.The Who
4.Rolling Stones
5.Beach Boys (they are much better than The Kinks!)

Two of those bands aren't British.

^ TBH, I would dispute this suggestion. It's true that one time the DCF "pushed" the Beatles off the number one singles chart, but only after the Beatles had held the position for about 6 weeks; i.e. everyone had bought so many copies of the Beatles single that it was inevitable that sales would drop off.

But thanks, dwill, for your typo, "The Dave Clack Five"

Good call from Neapolitan for the Yardbirds, and time also to mention Traffic, Mannfred Mann, and of course, The Animals who made the pretty-much definitive version of House of the Rising Sun. Here's their cover version of another song, though I don't have a date for this:-
