The single was followed by two albums, ''Music/MrTambourineMan'' and ''Turn! Turn! Turn'', which relied heavily on [[CoverVersion covers]] of other songs, generally by Music/BobDylan or traditional folk songs, with original songs mostly contributed by Gene Clark. The latter album also had an EarlyBirdCameo for their future musical direction, as Hillman, whose musical background was more bluegrass/country than the others' folk, convinced the band to cover "Satisfied Mind". However, the band got bored with folk-rock and began to experiment with PsychedelicRock on ''Fifth Dimension'', which provided another hit with the creepy "Eight Miles High".

'''The Byrds''' were a band active in TheSixties who were the {{Trope Maker}}s for the genre of [[FolkMusic Folk Rock]] (alongside Music/SimonAndGarfunkel), although they experimented with different genres throughout their career such as PsychedelicRock and CountryMusic. The band was formed initially as a duo comprised of Jim (later Roger) [=McGuinn=] and Gene Clark as guitarists and singers. Third guitarist [[Music/CrosbyStillsNashAndYoung David Crosby]] soon joined up, and the Byrds was born. Drummer Michael Clarke (recruited partly because of his resemblance to [[Music/TheRollingStones Brian Jones]]) and bassist Chris Hillman joined shortly after the formation. Thus, the "classic" Byrds line-up was born. Thanks to their manager Jim Dickson's connections, they got signed to Creator/ColumbiaRecords.

** "So You Want To Be A Rock 'N' Roll Star" is often called a TakeThat to Franchise/TheMonkees, but they've denied it and said that it was more of an amused reaction to how easily new bands could be hyped into popularity in TheSixties.[[note]]They had no particular problem with The Monkees, and Mike Nesmith even sat in with them on guitar at a few concerts[[/note]]

* OnceAnEpisode: The Byrds' early albums all featured a humorous, quirky ending song: ''Music/MrTambourineMan'' concluded with an ironic cover of VeraLynn's "We'll Meet Again" (inspired by its usage in ''Film/DrStrangelove''), ''Turn! Turn! Turn!'' ended with a tongue-in-cheek send-up of the folk song "Oh! Susannah", and ''Fifth Dimension'' finished with "2-4-2 Fox Trot (The Lear Jet Song)", which features a catchy groove with minimal lyrics [[GratuitousPanning panned hard right]] while the left channel includes sound effects depicting a plane taking off. The tradition ended with ''Younger Than Yesterday'', but was temporarily resurrected for ''Ballad Of Easy Rider'' through "Armstrong, Aldrin and Collins", a light-hearted meditation on the Apollo 11 moon landing.

* ThrowItIn: On "Hickory Wind" (''Sweetheart of The Rodeo'') someone coughs right after Gram Parsons sings "in South Carolina".
