Written by Harmon Leon

When you think of the 60s, 70s, and 80s - one of the first things that comes to mind is how groovy everyone looked. During this era, you had some crazy great fashion styles such as hot pants, knee high leather boots, and feathered hair. Then you had a slew of celebrities, singers, and musicians that rocked our world. Need I mention Elvis Presley, Ann Margret, Sonny and Cher, and the Mamas and the Papas?

Imagine how cool it must have been to see Debbie Harry on stage for the very first time at the Whiskey-A- Go-Go as she fronted her band Blondie - or the thrill of watching Charlie's Angels before it became an international sensation. Well, we got 61 photos that captures that groovy era - with a lot amazing shots we're sure you've never seen before. So rub your eyes and get ready for a visual treat of some amazing shots from yesteryear. Ready? Let's go!

Ann-Margaret - hell ya! What's there not to like about this photo. You got young, hot Ann-Margaret, you got a very cool motorcycle, and you got the open road. Viva la America!

One thing I never knew, Ann-Margaret's last name is Olsson. She is a Swedish-American singer/actress who is known for her roles in Bye Bye Birdie, The Cincinnati Kid, Carnal Knowledge, Tommy, and Grumpy Old Men.

Oh yeah, she also starred opposite Elvis Presley in Viva Las Vegas; in fact she was once billed as the female version of Elvis Presley. Trying to capitalize on the 'female Elvis' she recorded a rendition of "Heartbreak Hotel."
