* 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 [[Music/FountainsOfWayne Adam Schlesinger]], 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".

* ThrowItIn: The single mix of "Daydream Believer" opens with this bit of studio chatter:
-->'''Chip Douglas:''' (This is take) 7A.
-->'''Davy Jones:''' What number is this, Chip?
-->'''Mike Nesmith, Peter Tork, Micky Dolenz:''' ''Seven. A!!!''
-->'''Davy Jones:''' Okay, know what I mean, like, don't get excited, man. It's 'cause I'm short, I know.

** Famously The Monkees did this with Music/TheBeatles, but developed their own unique style.
** ''Series/ThePartridgeFamily'' was an attempt by Screen Gems to reuse the successful methodology they'd found with The Monkees. It worked for a while.
** There were two bizarre stillborn attempts to create new franchises using the Monkee formula via movies, both from 1970. ''[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toomorrow_(film) Toomorrow]]'', co-produced by none other than Don Kirshner, was a science fiction comedy starring a group fronted by a pre-stardom Olivia Newton-John. ''[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Phynx The Phynx]]'' was a tongue-in-cheek story about the US government drafting four young men to start a rock band to act as a front for undercover operations. Both films experienced a TroubledProduction and were given scant releases by their studios before disappearing. But they've both acquired followings based on their SoBadItsGood reputations.

* HilariousInHindsight: Micky was in a pre-Monkees band called The Missing Links. Even funnier after they made the ''33 & 1/3 Revolutions Per Monkee'' TV special, which featured Charles Darwin as a character.

* 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.
