    If we include Paul Revere and the Raiders, we have to include The Kingsmen. Their version of Louie Louie is still being played all over the world.
    Bit of trivia: Springsteen opened for them in 1972.

    I agree 100%. I saw them live and the word "tight" is an understatement.

    I never said anything about him that you seem to assume. I just said that he really was more of a country singer. That's all. Not sure where the rest came from. BTW I was born in 1969.

    When you said "Elvis shouldn't be considered anyhow. Elvis was a hyped up country singer" I took that as an insult. He was much more than that to millions of people and I assumed you missed that whole thing because of your age. After all he scored his last number one record the year you were born...:D. But no worries man I don't get mad about those things just responding.

    He shouldn't be considered because of the rules the OP set in the very first post. When I listen to early Elvis, he sang country music. I'm not belittling that at all. I completely understand his influence. My folks played Elvis all of the time when they weren't playing Rodger Whittaker. I like Elvis, he just doesn't fit the rules which is a shame. No worries here either.

    Guess I should vote as I remember those years. The Beatles. Many other greats but mostly frontmen (i.e. Chuck Berry, Gerry Lee Lewis, Little Richard, etc.).

    Well, I thought of mentioning them, back around the second page. But I already answered the Beatles, and had made several posts relating to the movie "That Thing You Do", so I waited for someone else to bring them up. Way cool group though!

    It's a stretch, but there certainly is some '50s influence. Mostly blues, but also R'n'R. The most obvious example being..."Rock and Roll," with the almost beat-for-beat imitation of the drum into from Little Richard's "Keep A-Knockin'."

    I'm going with Louis Jordan and his Tympani Five. He may even be patient zero.
