The Kooks official music video for How’d You Like That. How’d You Like That is a song performed by The Kooks.

Brighton based Britpop group The Kooks return with their unique style of trademark breeziness and catchy hooks with the track ‘How’d You Like That’, the third single from their 2011 album ‘Junk of the Heart’. Having been compared to British rockers the Libertines and Arctic Monkeys while drawing musical influences from the likes of The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan and The Police, the new record marks a movement forward for The Kooks’ sound. Singer Luke Pritchard described the song as being created with reference to topics such as mortality and the afterlife. Named after the song on David Bowie’s Hunky Dory album, the Kooks met while attending Brighton Music College in the mid-2000s. Each shared a liking for similar artists such as The Police, The Strokes, The Everly Brothers, and Funkadelic, the bandmates decided to channel this common interest into something creative, developing their own sound over time. Other singles from the Junk Of The Heart album included sweet numbers ‘Is It Me’ and ‘Junk Of The Heart (Happy)’. The Kooks have attracted some controversy regarding their public disputes with fellow British artists Artic Monkeys and Razorlight. A feud began between Luke Pritchard and Alex Turner when the Kooks frontman apparently kicked the Artic Monkeys vocalist in the face when he attempted to disrupt a live Kooks performance by unplugging the lead from Pritchard’s guitar. Pritchard said he attempted to make amends to Turner and apologised for the incident, however the Artic Monkeys star failed to respond.
