The Spindle: The Monkees “(I’m Not Your) Steppin’ Stone”

You’re walking ’round like you’re front page news, pressing play on a new episode of The Spindle. On this episode, the guys focus on The Monkees’ 1967 hit “(I’m Not Your) Steppin’ Stone,” with a couple detours into other versions of the song, including Paul Revere and the Raiders, The Sex Pistols, and Minor Threat. As post-modern as it gets, The Monkees were (and are) a pop phenomenon, and this single illustrates why.
