Top Pop Artists of the 1960s

List Criteria: If I missed one of your favorite artists of this era, you may add them to this list.

List of the best pop artists of the 60s, ranked. The 1960s may very well be the best decade for music in the rock era. Music from the decade 1960-69 can bring back good memories for many who grew up in this era, those who can help decide which of these artists were truly the best of the 60s. Even younger generations who grew up in later decades are fond of 1960s music, which persists in the collective conscience.
