The Battle of the "You Really Got Me" versions

I heard a song on the leading local classic rock radio station tonight that got me thinking of all the different versions of The Kinks' "You Really Got Me."

I've heard it done in a family movie called "Picture Perfect."  There's a version by The Chipmunks, for cryin' out loud.

And I haven't even mentioned the blistering cover done by Van Halen.

So, I'll leave it up to the viewers to decide between three of them which was the greatest:  The Chipmunks, Van Halen, and the ones who started it all -- The Kinks.

If anyone chooses The Chipmunks ... well, may the rock 'n' roll gods have mercy on your soul.
