8. The Kinks - 'All Day and All of the Night'
Much like the Zombies, the Kinks had an explosive start to their career. Their third single, "You Really Got Me," is one of the most important songs in rock history, and they followed it up just two months later with "All Day and All of the Night." Sure, it doesn't do much to improve upon the formula of "You Really Got Me," but the song is every bit as good. Nearly every garage rock group that followed (not to mention punk act) owes the Kinks a tremendous debt of gratitude for this material.
