Possibly the most exciting riff in rock history; raw, dirty and totally infectious. You Really Got Me was a landmark recording: a breakthrough in sound that has echoed throughdozens of rock classics and become the blueprint for hard rock, heavy metal even, while its sloppy guitar solo pointed the way for punk rock.

No rock band is an island. The Kinks started writing at one of the most exciting times in popular music, when youngsters were hungry for new and obscure discs, mixing it up, learning all the time, trying it out in their front rooms. Here is the story of You Really Got Me.

CD One tells the story of this seminal record and charts its influences, some of them surprising. CD Two presents original versions of Kinks stage favourites.
