What if the Beatles had never existed? And subsequently, the careers of all the members of the band afterwords would never exist.

yes 100%

the world would be filled with less pretentious d-bags thinking they are so cool for knowing 1 or 2 songs from a band which preached peace and love from the comfort of their hotel rooms and beds. The band did nothing for knowing and their music is mediocre.

EDIT: yes they are just like the jonas bros. they both make music with simple chord progression and little 'diddys.' The JB have a majority audience of screaming girls into their pop style music and guess what? so did the beatles. their core demographic back in the day were all girls of whom they sang their pop music for.

The Beatles first to albums were very good. The rest of the albums had maybe one or two good songs on them. I don't hate the Beatles though, just most of their fans.

Fixed

EDIT: the beatles were evolutionary in every sense of the word - most rock music wouldn't exist without them, and many recording techniques would have never happened. You have to remember at the time the beatles were starting out the recording industry thought "bands with guitars were on the way out"

actually if the Beatles never existed... none of todays bands would be here today. because they influenced the bands that todays bands are influenced by. but wether todays music would be better or not i dont know.

Think of all the bands that never did exist, how different our music scene would be if non existant band existed.

If the Beatles never existed, we would all be listening to big band and gospel and the world would be a much better (and less sperm-covered) place.

But what if existed band did not exist so we can see how the not-existing band can exist and be worse then the existing band that ceased to excist because that sucking non-existing band needed to be existed for weird uses and now wants to be non-exist because of that.

would suck wouldnt it?

Some other group would have had to have pioneered similar things the Beatles did. I think rock music would turn out relatively the same, just with different figureheads.

Why so silly? The world needs to be like this, because if the world wasn't like this, how would we know if the world we know isn't better than the one that we would know if the world we know didn't exist?

Besides, Overpopulation = More Bands.

More Bands = More Potentially Good Bands.

The only way we can TRULY find an answer to this question, is if somebody goes back in time and kills the Beatles before they get big.

true, but I could have gotten angry at him for no reason and told him to "go **** yourself asswipe" so either way, I could have said that because he could have said that Led Zeppelin sucks, or fried chicken is disgusting, or fapping is fun. Then I would have gotten angry at him also.

+1

the beatles were ok, wrote generic pop songs... but if they never existed, not nearly as many people would have cried over John Lennon death and Paul McCartney wouldn't have written so many ****ty pop songs. Hell, maybe someone better could have take there role and influence music in a much better direction.
