List of The Kinks songs, ranked from best to worst by the Ranker community. The Kinks were one of the most distinctive bands of the British Invasion. After their initial run of early hits, they went on to craft some of the most critically-adored albums of the '60s. All of The Kinks's biggest singles are included here, from "Lola" to "You Really Got Me," but real fans of the band know there are other classic songs to vote on besides the radio hits. 

Music videos and audio videos are included next to each track name, so if you haven't heard a song you can listen to it right here on this list. Is one of your favorite Kinks songs missing from this poll? Add it to the list so it has a chance to rise to the top. If the order of this list bothers you, then kickstart a revolution and fight back by creating your own version and re-ranking it. Simply click the "Rerank List" button and you can put the songs in whatever order you like.
