A great musical group of the British invasion, composed of brothers Ray and Dave Davies, bassist Pete Quaife and drummer Mick Avory, the Kinks are the most underrated band of all time. They're easily on par with the Beatles, the Who or the Rolling Stones. Perhaps the antithesis of Pink Floyd, by far the most overrated band of all time.
"Waterloo Sunset" by the Kinks is one of the great singles of all time

Some describe them as the fathers of hard rock. If you like Cake, Beck, Nirvana, Wilco, The Ramones, The Clash, or any other alternative rock band - check out the Kinks. They are the original grunge band.
