The Kinks Vs. The Moody Blues – Ultimate Classic Rock Hall of Fame Round One

Ultimate Classic Rock Hall of Fame
Ultimate Classic Rock

The first round Ultimate Classic Rock Hall of Fame battle between the Kinks and the Moody Blues features two British Invasion-era bands who went on to influence classic rock in vastly different but undeniably important ways.

Each month, your votes will determine which of eight legendary artists or bands is immortalized forever for their contributions to classic rock history. The Moody Blues arrived on the music scene in the mid-’60s, but their career really took off with 1967’s groundbreaking ‘Days of Future Passed,’ which incorporated orchestral music to create a soft, psychedelic landscape on songs like the classic ‘Nights in White Satin.’ They would go on to refine this sound over the following decades, and are still together today.

Meanwhile, the impact of the Kinks on classic rock can be measured either by their riff-centric, groundbreaking early singles (‘All Day and All of the Night,’ the immortal ‘You Really Got Me’), or the genre-expanding concept albums (‘Arthur (Or the Decline and Fall of the British Empire)’, ‘The Village Green Preservation Society’) they released a few years later.

Why Isn’t My Favorite Band Nominated for the Hall of Fame?

We know, it’s hard to choose between two such amazing bands, but with great power comes great responsibility, and we trust you to make the right choice. You can read the official Hall of Fame rules right here. Everybody can vote once a day in each of our four first round battles from now until 11:59 PM ET on Sunday, March 17. The first entrant into the Ultimate Classic Rock Hall of Fame will be revealed on April 1, 2013.
