11. Can't really argue with that

 

The Sonics were a great band, and I love all of the titles you mentioned.

I’ve always felt that the first “punk” song (although they weren’t a “punk” band) was You Really Got Me. It’s been said of Billy Childish that he wanted to sound like The Kinks and he wanted all of his songs to sound like All Day and All of the Night (my favorite Kinks song). Back then the question was “Beatles or Stones?” My answer always was “The Kinks.”

ETA: I’m sure you’re well aware, but The Witch might be the most covered song in rock ‘n’ roll history!
