Radiohead - No, seriously people, they're just awful.

The Kinks - Yes, the sixties had some great pop acts and the kinks most certainly fit under this category, always charming, and always inventive.

The Beach Boys - Yes, see above, but less inventive.

Public Enemy - No, it's not Run-D.M.C and that's enough reason for me.

Radiohead - No, a mediocre band that do have a large fanbase but I seriously cannot see music now and in the future being any different than if they had never existed.

The Kinks - Yes, very quirky, very witty, very much the perfect pop/rock band that only Britain could give birth to.

The Beach Boys - Yes, despite not giving a damn about Pet Sounds, bar a couple of songs, it is still a very important album, beautiful harmonies and perfectly captured a time and place with their early works.

Public Enemy - No, just haven't done enough to get in, but still good.

Thats because they are... Their songs are about the little quaint things that keep the Englishman sane!

Radiohead
No, because i think they're utterly boring and not innovative in the least. Bottom line: they're just generic post-80s rock.

The Kinks
Heck yes, easily the most underrated of the British Invasion bands. Village Green Preservation Society was just as influential as Beggar's Banquet and Sgt Pepper's in my eyes.

The Beach Boys
Yes, because of Pet Sounds.

Public Enemy
No, there are an infinite amount of hip hop acts much more deserving than p.e.

Coldplay feels otherwise.

All I was saying is that voting no is fine, but to say they aren't the least bit influential is just ignorant.
