Mad Men showrunner Matthew Weiner is famously precise about every single aspect of the show, particularly when it comes to getting the the tumultuous 1960s correct. So it’s no surprise that the music used throughout the show’s seven seasons represents some of the era’s best — and, truth be told, the oddest — rock and pop songs, including quirky one-hit-wonders, deep cuts by the likes of the Zombies and Simon & Garfunkel, and iconic tunes by Frank Sinatra, the Rolling Stones, and the Beatles. Alas, a comprehensive soundtrack for the show has never been released (get on that, people!) — but you can relive some of the series’ best musical moments with our list of the 25 best Mad Men musical moments, covering everything from Chubby Checker to David Bowie.
