Can you complete the names of these chart-topping bands from the 1960s?

Fill in words missing from these groups that went to No. 1.

Around the turn of the millennium, hundreds of "The" bands swarmed record stores and radio. There were The Strokes, The Killers, The White Stripes… and so on.

Well, this was nothing new, more like an echo of the Sixties.

Only, in the 1960s, every act seemed to be called So-and-So and the Whatevers. In fact, all of the following acts had names like that — and huge songs that went to No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100.
