There were better bands outside of the UK?
Both the Byrds and the Beach Boys were certainly better than The Who in '65, and Dylan is better than any of the three bands listed above.
But better than The Beatles?
No, that's why I didn't include them. But I'll bet Dylan could give them a run for their money in '65. Basically, you're looking at Bringing it all Back Home
and Highway 61
and Rubber Soul
. And then you've got stuff like "Ticket to Ride," "I'm Down," "We Can Work it Out," "Day Tripper," etc. Dylan's only got the "Positively 4th St" and "Can You Please Crawl Out Your Window" stand-alone 45s.
I dunno, it might still be close.
