Editors’ Notes With their frisky rhythms, quirky melodies, and intricate guitar riffs—all infused with a healthy dose of British charm—The Kinks have left a huge imprint on punks, garage rockers, power poppers, and even Van Halen. In fact, the entire Britpop scene has the Davies brothers to thank for showing how you can capture a moment—or the world—in a catchy pop song.
