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.
