Professor Of Rock has released the new video below, along with the following message:

"The story of the top ten 60s smash 'You Really Got Me' by the Kinks, later covered to great effect by the mighty Van Halen in the 70s. The first major hit to feature distorted guitar by the brothers Davies - Ray Davies and Dave Davies. How this song changed everything in 1964 and how Eddie Van Halen reignited it in 1978."
