* PromotedFanboy: The rock luminaries who contributed songs to ''Good Times!'', like [[{{Music/Weezer}} Rivers Cuomo]], [[Music/DeathCabForCutie Ben Gibbard]], [[{{Music/Oasis}} Noel Gallagher]], [[Music/TheJam Paul Weller]], plus Adam Schlesinger (Fountains of Wayne), who also produced the album. They were all admirers of Monkee music and jumped at the offer to contribute material for a new album.
** [[{{Music/XTC}} Andy Partridge]] is especially notable, since he was a fan in TheSixties and [[http://www.monkeeslivealmanac.com/blog/is-andy-partridge-of-xtc-writing-a-new-song-for-the-monkees had a drawing he made of Micky]] published in the official fan publication in 1968. Micky sings lead on Partridge's "You Bring The Summer".

* EnsembleDarkhorse: Peter. Despite playing "the dumb one" on the show and making only a handful of vocal appearances on the original albums, Peter is beloved in the fandom. At one point in TheEighties Peter had more individual fan clubs than any of the other Monkees.
