* AmericaSavesTheDay: Parodied and played straight in "Catch Me Now I'm Falling" in the album ''Low Budget'' (it has the theme of the weak economy of the 70's). America's economy is down and ComicBook/CaptainAmerica asks the world to catch them now that its falling, by reminding them of all the times America has supported them.

The band changed once again in TheSeventies, exploring a more theatrical, campy sound. However, this only worsened their declining popularity; however, the resulting {{concept album}}s are starting to garner some reappraisals. They then restyled themselves as an arena rock band in 1976. Lucky enough to be synchronised with the PunkRock explosion and some successful covers of their songs by Punk and [[NewWaveMusic New Wave]] bands, The Kinks rode their second wave of popularity until the early '80s, culminating when their single "Come Dancing" became a worldwide smash in early 1983. They then went back to being a cult band before calling it quits in 1996.

The Kinks were an English rock band, one of the "Big Four" [[TheBritishInvasion British Invasion]] bands of TheSixties (along with Music/TheBeatles, Music/TheRollingStones, and Music/TheWho) and a LongRunner, having experienced a long career's worth of highs and lows before throwing in the towel in 1996. While they have had numerous members, their most famous line-up was composed of vocalist/guitarist/[[IAmTheBand mastermind]] Ray Davies, his vocalist/guitarist brother Dave Davies, bassist Pete Quaife (left in 1969, died 2010) and the former (albeit briefly) drummer of Music/TheRollingStones, Mick Avory (who left in 1984).

* GenrePopularizer: "You Really Got Me" is widely considered to have been the blueprint for kicking off everything from Garage Rock to Metal to Punk.



* RealLifeWritesThePlot[=/=]WriteWhatYouKnow: Ray and Dave Davies regularly fought each other on-stage in TheSixties. Therefore the American Musicians' Union banned The Kinks from touring in the U.S. from 1965-1970. This led to Ray and Dave being isolated from and uninvolved with American politics and counter-culture. They reverted to writing about British concerns, British culture and Britain, from a British perspective, language and humour separated from their Americanized peers. This may have hurt their sales in America, but would give them an identity as BritPop innovators.
