Poll question: Battle of the Bands Part XXXX-The Kinks Vs. The Animals
Showing my age, but what the hell.

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

1. Ray Davies beats the Animals like Eric Burdon owes him money
No contest whatsoever.

3. I saw Ray and the boys years ago
and I had the flu and STILL had the time of my life. Lo-La, La La La Lo-La.

2. When I was 13 I rode in the elevator of the Conrad Hilton --
-- with Eric Burdon and the Animals.

They were as hip as hip can be but chilled enough to be gracious to a 13-year old.

Also I had just recently figured out what "House of the Rising Sun" was about, and damn it, I was pretty hip, too.

Hilton Valentine...one of the coolest names ever!

4. The Animals...The ORIGINAL sullen badass band...
back in the day when even Keith Richard was still bobbing his head and grinning like some cheesy showbiz twit.
The Kinks, for the most part, came off a little too...English

5. They had an incredibly cool sound in the beginning
But I am a dedicated Davies fanboy. I all but wear a Kinks beanie to bed each night. The New Animals however were an atrocity visited upon an unsuspecting public that tarnished the memory of the original Animals pretty thoroughly.

7. Ew...."New Animals"
That's like the "new" Guns-N-Roses Axl is trying to sell to the public. How sad.

9. The New Animals were indeed an atrocity, but Burdon redeemed himself...
somewhat with The Eric Burdon Band of the mid 70s. Criminally overlooked.

So that's what happened to my wife's Kinks beanie! She is a Davies fangirl :)
