A decent and very influential rock band from the 1960s. Although good and revoloutionary to the music industry, they are overrated to an extent. No, this is not coming from a "Linkin Park brainwashed fag". I don't even listen to Linkin Park or any other Nu-Metal.
Billy- The Beatles are good, but not as good as everyone thinks.

Joe- HOW DARE YOU SPEAK SUCH BLASPHEMY! *Pulls out magnum, shoots Billy needlessly*

The most overrated band in history.
40+ years of people obsessing over them, when they're really not that good. All of their songs follow the same formula and are overplayed. Plus kids think they're so special and unique if they say they like The Beatles.

Please! Get over it!

Highly over-rated band. Everyone likes different music and the beatles were not the greatest band in history - a lot of people liked them but not everyone.
Jim: Hey man everything else sucks the beatles rule
Bob: Actually I quite like Abba instead
Jim's Gang: Wot did you say??? (about to kill him)
God: Leave Bob alone, we all have different tastes!
Jim: Okay, sorry God

Rock Band from the 60's.
Impressed hoardes of fans, but their fame was enhanced by the media.
They may have been very influantial, but the fans on this site whe cite them as the most talented band ever are getting caught up in the frenzy. Most fans will pass this off as another teenager who thinks the beatles are oversated. However, any moron can listen to a band with TALENT that plays a similar style and hear the difference.
Beatles > moronic lyrics, on par with modern 'pop sensations' such as the backstreet boys (ok, not close to THAT bad)

Eagles > Equal or better playing talent, and 1000x better lyrics. If you like the beatles better, you are a TRENDWHORE or STUPID!

Before you start on me, i have heard some of the beatles' music, but i have to say, (with the exception of "hey jude") it hasnt excited me that much. they are over-rated, whatever anyone says, they are certainly not the best band ever. as for influential, i'd say bob dylan, led zepplin, van halen and iron maiden are more influential. i think the reason they were so popular in the 60's was that they were something new that no-one had really seen before. i do like "hey jude" though.
p.s.: i'm not a linkin park fan

Another band that NO ONE would have listened to if the retro thing wasen't "in". Now you have Slipknot fans listening to The Beatles. Its Sad, SAD I TELL YOU!
SlIpKnoT FaN: Teacher, a few days ago was the death of John Lennon..I don't think we should do work today.

A band who is really really over rated. Some songs are okay, but they're not that great. I'm tired of people telling me how influential they were. and I am not one of those linkin park fans either. I hate linkin park and modern rock, rap, hip hop, and other really bad music. I love Lynyrd Skynyrd, Led Zeppelin, Boston, AC/DC, BTO, Foreigner, etc, but the Beatles are over rated.

-"no, they aren't, shut up"
