9. The Partridge Family beat The Beatles

Like The Monkees, The Partridge Family released records that actually went on to become huge hits. The group was nominated for a Best New Artist Grammy in 1971 (only David Cassidy and Shirley Jones really sang on the album, but the whole cast was nominated). Their biggest single, “I Think I Love You” went to number one on the Billboard charts and actually outsold The Beatles’ “Let in Be.”
