Jim Morrison and The Doors, also performed in Toronto, Ontario in 1967. So I guess they were popular at least in the part of Canada. That performance really looked like a hippie fest with the hall being filled with hippie chicks, with very young woman dancing in cages just above The Doors. Jim Morrison didn't consider himself a hippie and I don't know if other members of The Doors did either, but they were certainly part of that generation and were part of the times. Break on Through is a classic, classic rock song. And certainly part of the 1960s and represented that decade so well as an anti-establishment decade with so many young adults in America looking for an alternative lifestyle from which they were raised in the 1950s and 1960s. Jim Morrison and The Doors, (at least as I call them) were not a hippie band, but they certainly were an anti-establishment band and a band that represented this decade so well and wanting to deliver a message and lifestyle that simply seemed foreign to most Americans who either remember World War II as kids, or were part of that generation that served. 

Salon: Have Republicans lost the culture war?: Liberals and Sane People Generally Have Won The Culture War

Have Republicans lost the culture war?

Sorry Neoconservatives, Liberals and Libertarians are now winning the Culture War, maybe you can go invade Yemen or somewhere. And start your own Statist Republic/Theocracy, you just can't do it in America.
