    Well, it goes beyond saying that the sixties created the music scene we still know and love today, so it shouldn't be that much a surprise that groups have aped that look for their music videos and went to the ninth degree to get it right.

    Now ask anybody about Sixties footage of a band and everybody will say "The Beatles at Sullivan" which has become such iconic footage that it was ripe for parody or respectful homage, here's two music videos showcasing both instances.

    Nirvana "In Bloom"
    Basically shows Kurt and his gang take the Mickey out of the Beatles at Sullivan performance.


    Billy Joel "Tell her about it"
    Is a graceful tip of the hat.

    Back in 1989, the Acid House scene was being sold as being the "Second summer of love." Which prompted the Dutch band Tambourine to release a song which harked back to the first Summer of love.

    The song was a love letter, to Janis Joplin and bands like Jefferson Airplane. They made the music video to look as authentic as possible but they got one detail wrong: the bass player is playing a Gibson Grabber, which is a mid seventies bass, it couldn't have come from 1967.

    Don't know any modern videos that ape the 60's but I grew up on the 60's videos:

    This video has something of the vibe. Not the music, but the video.

    And of course, some of the most authentic 60s sounds happened in the 80s:

    When she takes the hat off, she kind of looks like Anne Coulter.
