An English band that was around during the British invasion. At first they made poppy music. What they musically contributed to the world of music was not their style, but experimenting. They were the first pop group to experiment.

They can't be the best band ever because there is no best band ever. They may be your favorite band but that doesn't mean they're the best band ever. Because music is entirely subjective.

People tend to exaggerate their influence. People say they influenced everything. Not true. They influenced musicians in a way to think outside the box and do something new. No bands really derived from their sound, but how they constantly did something different and weren't afraid to.

The music the hipsters listen to would have existed without The Beatles. The Beatles main influence was in the field of Rock, particularly in the sub-genres of Experimental, and Psychedelic.

Mainstream music is Pop-Punk, R&B, Electronic, Rap, and mixtures of those styles.

The Beatles had a strong influence on music, but only on some of the biggest sub-genres of Rock at the time. As I mentioned above, Experimental and Psychedelic.

They had no influence on Punk which inspires a lot of Rock today.
The Beatles are a very influential band, but not influential to all music.

A band from Liverpool, England in the 60's who were extremely infuential to modern music and "rock and roll."

With hits such as Hey Jude, Yesterday, Day Tripper, Come Together, Yellow Submarine, Blackbird, Sergeant Pepper's Lonley Hearts Club Band, and countless others, they are idolized and covered more than any other band in history.

Paul, John, Ringo & George - We love you!

The most popular and best-selling band in the world, even 30 years after they broke up.
Frequently dismissed by 13-year-olds as "old" and "over-rated", until they actually hear them for the first time.
Abbey Road is a famous Beatles CD.

The band that all the "punk" kids like to bash as "sissy" or "gay." What they don't realize is that without The Beatles, the bands they listen to now would never even be around.
-The Beatles are stupid and their music sucks
-I'm going to kill you

you cannot deny quality. The Beatles is the grandest band in existence, and will forever be so. and for those who think otherwise... well, they should be fucked in the ass with pineapples.

a crazy nice rock band from the 60's. and don't go around saying that theyre not good just because they're not new. do you think this generation invented good music? theres a reason people still listen to the Beatles today, and thats because they're so damn good.
unlike the beatles, all of the crap coming out today blows the cock.
