I think The Moody Blues were the most underrated British invasion band. Days of Future Past is an amazing overlooked gem.

Moody Blues were great, even when they were The Magnificent Moodies. I think Hayward and Lodge's later work was amazing also, especially on the Bluejays album. If any of these bands came out today, the Moody Blues would probably get the most fame because of the transcendent quality of their music, spanning all sorts of genre sounds.

That being said, I like every band listed but the Yardbirds. Their music doesn't carry much over these days because they were a little bit boring and probably at the time Fleetwood Mac was more experimental. I can't complain about Fleetwood Mac not being added though as they generally are not considered British Invasion.

The Kinks are amazing, as are The Who. The Stones WERE amazing but are not just skeletons with electrical instruments.

The Animals were better once Eric Burdon decided to move on from the original lineup. Song's like San Franciscan Nights and Sky Pilot were much better than that whole House of the Rising Sun bull$h1t.

The Beatles still rule, but the more you listen to their stuff the more you realize that George Harrison created their best products. Lennon and McCartney were kind of douches.

I would hardly just call Lennon and McCartney douches. Maybe this is just me () but they both made some of the best music of the era.

I think you could add "On The Threshold Of A Dream" as another Moody Blues gem, it's my personal favorite. One of the truly unique sounds of any band coming out of England of any era.

Where's Gerry And The Pacemakers or Freddie And The Dreamers or the Tremeloes or the Searchers? JK

The Zombies, Hollies and Moody Blues should be on the list.

i said kinda, not just. I liked both of their music, but I think George Harrison's contributions, while fewer, were more quality.

Lennon and Harrison were all right, but really, I'd say that even the secondary composers in other bands of that time were much better (Dave Davies, John Entwistle).

Come on... including Bowie (and Muse) are pushing the limit. The invasion was pretty much finished with the Beatles separating anyway. Muse is not even second wave. And they haven't invaded much... (no offense meant, I only mean that people didn't go crazy over them the way they did for Duran Duran... or Oasis)
