(From Wiki)

The Animals were an English music group of the 1960s known in the United States as part of the British Invasion. Known for their gritty, bluesy sound and deep-voiced frontman Eric Burdon, as exemplified by their signature songs "The House of the Rising Sun" and "We Gotta Get Out Of This Place", the band balanced tough, rock-edged pop singles against rhythm and blues-oriented album material. The Animals underwent numerous personnel changes and emerged as an exponent of psychedelic rock before dissolving at the end of the decade. They had a comeback in 1983 and started a world tour. In early 1984 the band disbanded.

They have classic hits like "We Gotta Get Out Of This Place", "Don't Let Me Be Misunderstood", a terrific "House Of The Rising Sun" cover, "When I Was Young", and "Don't Bring Me Down".

I think they were miles ahead of the Beatles at that point, and at least as good as the Stones would be.
