Released: August 1964
Trying to trace the roots of heavy metal? Many musicologists trace them to the red raw chords of this track, the ludicrously heavy third single from The Kinks and the one that sent them stratospheric. Just imagine how full on this sounded in the pop rock era of 1964. Its riff remains one of the all time greats to this day – just steer clear of the Van Halen version.
