Give The People What We Want: Songs of The Kinks is a 2001 tribute album to music of The Kinks by various garage, punk and indie artists from the Northwestern United States.

As described by one reviewer, the compilation is a "truly weird amalgamation that eviscerates the competition by providing you with what you never even thought about wanting. For instance: a quiet, heartfelt rendition of 'Waterloo Sunset', as performed by the Fastbacks. It's the most charmlessly charming, utterly superfluous album I've heard in a while; where most tribute albums suffer from a hyper-obsession while remaining true to the original artist, this compilation makes a strong case for the offbeat."[1]
