The Kinks

Led by uber-talented Ray Davies, who was the lead singer and composer, this group is almost forgotten now, but they were one of the leaders of the British Invasion. Drummer Mick Avory landed with these guys after being fired by Brian Jones and replaced with Charlie Watts in the Rolling Stones in 1963. Lead guitar Dave Davies was weird, but he was also the brother of Ray, which kept him in the group for decades.

The Kinks
Got Love If You Want It

The Kinks
You Really Got Me

We used to turn this one up loud as we drove around town in 1966.
The Kinks
Till the End of the Day

The Kinks
All Day and All of the Night

"Father Christmas,
Give us your money!
We'll beat you up,
if you make us annoyed"

Come on! Everybody sing!
The Kinks
Father Christmas
