This may be a bit of a broad topic, but I've been indulging in a lot of hippie music and am beginning to run out of new bands to listen too. It would be nice to have a comprehensive list, maybe it can be stickied. Anyone have any contributions?

Sample list:

The Allman Brothers Band
America
Arlo Guthrie
The Association
The Band
The Beatles
Blind Faith
Bob Marley
Buffalo Springfield
The Byrds
Canned Heat
Carole King
Cat Stevens
Cream
Creedence Clearwater Revival
Crosby, Stills & Nash
Donovan
The Doobie Brothers
The Eagles
Emerson, Lake & Palmer
Eric Clapton
Fleetwood Mac
Frank Zappa
Grand Funk Railrad
The Grateful Dead
The Guess Who
Hawkwind
Hot Tuna

Ok, no one has mentioned this band yet, so look at the flying v Godzilla is holding in the picture underneath. The innovators of the twin lead guitar sound, from which many other bands crafted their style to/from.

Phish

Why is Phish considered a hippie band? I have listened to some of their stuff and it doesn't particular sound hippish, nor does it have any hippie messages. So what's the deal?

Phish is considered hippie because: they were the second big head band to make it commercially
the flotsam in the lot tended to be hippie (or frat boy)

They were not afraid to bend rules, attractive trait to hippies.
