Between an active and devoted fan base, the painstaking work of music and television historians, and a record label that has gone to great lengths to expose generations of Monkees fans to the wealth of music and video produced under the Monkees banner, the Internet harbors a truly remarkable wealth of information about the Monkees and their video and audio output.  Web sites devoted to chronicling and archiving the history of the Monkees are especially notable for their accuracy and completeness, as the community of fans tend to be active in sharing, discussing, and revising their content, and the trademark and copyright owners of the Monkees and Monkees-related properties seem, thus far, to have allowed fans a considerable amount of latitude in maintaining their web sites with limited interference.

Official SitesEdit

  • The Monkees
The official Monkees web site maintained by Rhino Records.  Visitors can read occasional articles, find basic information about monkees audio and video, and view and listen to multimedia content.  The administrators also operate official Facebook, Twitter, and Spotify accounts.  The site formerly hosted a forum and an online store, but these have been replaced by Facebook and iTunes, respectively.
