Fair use rationale for Image:KinksTheKinks.jpg[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:KinksTheKinks.jpg is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to insure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.

If there is other other fair use media, consider checking that you have specified the fair use rationale on the other images used on this page. Note that any fair use images uploaded after 4 May, 2006, and lacking such an explanation will be deleted one week after they have been uploaded, as described on criteria for speedy deletion. If you have any questions please ask them at the Media copyright questions page. Thank you.BetacommandBot 10:55, 5 June 2007 (UTC)

Removal of "Protopunk" and "garage rock"?[edit]

I think it's ridiculous to include "protopunk" and "garage rock"; the only song on the album that touches on these genres is "You Really Got Me". I think the album is just being shoehorned into the genre just because of the most famous track. The rest is just rock and roll. Thoughts? 86.142.177.11 (talk) 20:19, 16 May 2014 (UTC)


Please read WP:NOR. You should be looking at published reviews, not listening and deciding yourself. Binksternet (talk) 06:41, 17 May 2014 (UTC)
Wait, so you expect there to be a source saying "This album is NOT "protopunk" nor "garage rock""? Please be realistic. When there isn't a written source about something, we start a discussion. 86.172.245.152 (talk) 13:42, 17 May 2014 (UTC)
No, we leave the genre empty when there is no written source. Binksternet (talk) 15:44, 17 May 2014 (UTC)
Would you say this source is sufficient enough to add "Rhythm and blues" and perhaps "Merseybeat": http://www.allmusic.com/album/kinks-mw0001983603 ?

Although maybe "beat" rather than "Merseybeat", since The Kinks were not from the Merseyside. MetalicMadness (talk) 17:23, 17 May 2014 (UTC)

The 'Merseybeat' bit is not suggested as a genre; the Allmusic source says that Ray Davies composed a few unremarkable "perfunctory Merseybeat-ish pastiches" which appear on the album. That is not strong enough to call the whole album "Merseybeat" or even "beat". Binksternet (talk) 17:53, 17 May 2014 (UTC)
