Technically speaking, the idiots above are somewhat correct. The Beatles were a middle man in influencing modern rock, albiet a very important middle man. Early blues musicians from America were the true influential backing for most of the 60's and 70's. BUT, the Beatles were the first band to truly take the bluesy sound and transform it into what we see as modern rock. you can even track this progression through their discography, each album growing more like rock, and with a more bluesy background. Now the persons above do not seem to realize just how pivotal a role this was. No one had ever before done anything like this. This paved the way for such groups as the Rolling Stones, Led Zeppelin, and the like. The Beatles music in general may be slightly overated (although i do not belive so) BUT the musical importance of it is in NO way overated, it was such an enormously pivotal role in the transition from early rock to what is now called modern rock it is hard to imagine what would be considered modern rock if fate had not brought together some of the most musically talented individuals the 60's, or the 20th century for that matter, saw.
Backwoods guitar to Blues to The Beatles to Rock, yes, evolution does in fact exist.
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!
I just bought the Abbey Road CD by The Beatles - it r0x0rz j00r b0x0rz.
Best Band in the world.
The Beatles were the best band ever!
OK, The Beatles kick some serious ass. I'm gonna use a quote from the ultra Styrocen here:
"The most over-rated band on Earth. Seen as kinda cute by chicks in the 60's b/c they wore matching clothes. But the media blew it all out of proportion. Now, the new generation is raised, blindly beleiving that the Beatles changed history, because it was beaten into them."
Hahahahaha, this comming from the kid who likes Linkin Park. Oh look at me, I'm the guitarist from Linkin Park, I can play two chords and call it a song! And I don't know how to solo, thus I should just ram this guitar up my ass to make the world a better place. And yeah yo, we need two singers, wait we need a singer and an "emcee" yo. See, that craptastic emcee in Linkin Park is a waste of space. I could go on, but this is a definition of the Beatles.
The Beatles kick ass. It's funny to think how we listen to Yellow Submarine in kindergarten, when in reality all four of the Beatles we're high as shit when they wrote it. But that's ok, because unlike now, drugs wern't used to be cool, but to expand your mind (aka Jerry Garcia.) The best Beatles album is Abbey Road, with the White Album a close second. And I'm sure if you faggy "nu metal" kids would think the Beatles were more hardcore if you saw the original cover of the White Album.
Anyways, no band of today can stand up to the Beatles. Not your carppy emo bands who sing on their acoustic guitars about who their girlfriends left them, or those shit eating "ra...
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.
"and in the end, the love you take, is equal to the love you make."
Greatest Band Ever.
Fronted by John Lennon (or Paul McCartney, depending on who you ask.)
Came about in 1960 or so, switching drummers til they picked up Ringo Starr.
Usually insulted by today's ignorant youth. The same ignorant ones that say Linkin Park are musical gods. Pfft.
Guy 1: The Beatles are the best band ever!
Guy 2: I like the White Album!
Guy 3: They suck!
*Guy 1 and 2 kick the crap out of Guy 3*
