The Monkees was one of the most popular bands in America. They were also the subject of an FBI file linked to the Vietnam War. Now, Monkees singer Micky Dolenz, is suing the agency to find out more.
The FBI said, "References to the band appear in two places in FBI files: a 1967 Los Angeles Field Office memorandum on anti-Vietnam war activities and a second document redacted entirely."
The cover of the FBI file on the agency’s website erroneously refers to “the Monkeys”. The documents provide few clues as to why the band was of interest to federal agents
