For a band that was initially conceived as America's answer to the Beatles, in sitcom form, the Monkees really didn't do too bad. John Lennon famously referred to them as the "Marx Brothers" in recognition of their comedy chops, and then he got to sit back and watch while the Marx Brothers of rock sold more albums than he did. And they didn't just sell more albums than he did; in 1967 they sold more albums than the Beatles and the Rolling Stones combined.
