the beatles are and always will be the best. they were super talented and don't let anyone tell you that the media overrated them. the media does that to everything. i usually respect other people's opinions, but not on this. when you think about it, they influeced everyone. in one way or another. i won't lash out on linkin park fans, but i will on green day fans. i'm a middle schooler who used to like green day, until i got sgt. pepper. so i threw away american idiot and got hooked on sgt pepper. after that i got the white album. really a great album, although the second disc isn't that great. unlike green day the beatles had MEANINGFUL lyrics (but i'm not sure if why don't we do it in the road is exactly meaningful). they also had great music. so what if their later stuff was drug influenced. they did that to expand their mind, and weren't like, "give me a joint the size of a car or i'll kill you," (well maybe john lennon). just to clarify george harrison was the LEAD guitarist. not rythem. the beatles are: paul mccarntey (bassist, sometimes guitarist, lead singer on his songs and songwriter with lennon. still alive) john lennon (rythm guitarist, singer on his songs and songwriter with mccarntey. shot 5 times by some nut in new york in 1980. he died 100 years too young) george harrison (my fav beatle. lead guitarist singer on his songs and i guess some of lennon/mccartney's but im not sure. by far the cutest beatle. was really nice and liked the sitar as shown on within you without you and others. after the beatles he did the concert for bangladesh, to help bangladesh, and was the producer on some of the monty python
movies. died in 2001 after battling cancer. he too died 100 years too young) ringo starr (real name richard starky, drummer and wrote like 2 songs. sang a few of lennon/mccartney's. really good drummer and the most underestimated beatle. he will live forever)
green day fan: i love green day i'm going to dye my hair black and get tattoos on my dick. the beatles suck cos they don't have tattoos or died black hair.
beatle fan 1: so what? its not the hair or tattoos that matter, its the music.
beatle fan 2: i agree.
green day fan: well green day has way better music than the beatles.
beatle fans 1 and 2 with their friends beatles fans 3 and 4 torture green day fan, kill him, bring him back to life, and kill him again.
