Definitely the Beatles. Stones and the Kinks would come a close 2nd (I know this will cause some controversy). But nobody could beat them.

The BEATLES kicked off the entire thing. Bold, brash, new sexy, talented and British what more do you need!

I'd probably say...

1. The Beatles
2. The Kinks
3. Small Faces
4. The Rolling Stones
5. The Who

Small Faces never released as much great work as the Stones or or the Who, but I think I like them more than either. Their debut is one of my favorite 60s party albums, it grooves hard, and I'm convinced Steve Marriot has one of the most rock and roll ready singing voices ever. The lyrics don't live up to it usually but they work on that over the next few releases. I've never heard a bad album by them...I guess they just speak to me! Stones and Who are great though.

Yardbirds should be on there but I'm just not familiar enough with them to put them on there.

The Yardbirds should be one of the choices. They were my favorite British Invasion band.

Led Zeppelin is from Great Britain, but they're not a British Invasion band, because they didn't form until 1969. British Invasion refers to the first wave of English bands who became successful in America in the two years following the Beatles first trip to America in February 1964.

I was suprised to see the Beatles outstrip the Rolling Stones by more than half in this poll, I guess I'm in the minority

Looking back over the Rolling Stones contribution to pop music they hold up well to the Beatles, but I think they were never hyped as much as the Beatles. There was never a Rolling Stone mania where as well Beatlemania along with a crushing commercial on slot of merchandise kept them at the for front of the British invasion bands..........
