Just a joke. I mean that it's based on the same formula of "You Really Got Me" and "All Day And All Of The Night": simple riff, repetitive melody and raucous guitar solo. That formula is as fun as reused.

I think the Kinks introduced a new sound with "You Really Got Me" and then repeated themselves until they found their way in more melodic tunes and inspired lyrics. Then further innovation in hard rock was made by other bands like the Who, the Yardbirds and Cream.

Yes
Wasn't it's the first distorted guitar sound on record created by blowing up the speaker on the little radio amplifier that they were using I'm sure I remember Ray telling the story of how the distorted sound was created by accident but it started a new sound

Great song.

Kev, that was Willie Kizart on Rocket 88...

1951


The legend says that the amp, which belonged to guitarist Willie Kizart, was damaged on Highway 61 while the band was driving from Mississippi to Memphis. According to the story, the amplifier fell from the top of the car, and the boys then tried to hold the speaker cone in place by stuffing it with wadded newspapers, creating a distorted sound.

The Kinks did that intentionally, that's why they got a more distorted sound.

It's a similar case as the feedback: it already existed on record by accident, but the Beatles produced it intentionally in a more controlled way.

Same as with the Who's "Anyway, Anyhow, Anywhere." I wonder which came first (Beatles, probably). I'm in a rush and will have to look it up later.

Hombre is referring to the Kink's "I Need You" HG. Not George's.

It took me a while to realize that, Moog.  Yes, there are some similarities.

"Anyway, Anyhow, Anywhere" was certainly recorded after "I Feel Fine", but I think the Who did the next important step on feedback with that song.

That's right. Now I understand the missunderstanding. :)

It was almost a formula for them for a bit it seems.
