Everyone either calls The Beatles pop or rock so pit what do you guys think? Personally, I see them as a rock band but there early stuff is very poppy.

They're pop. George Harrison solo career was rock.

They were the Lady GaGas of the 60's!

Play until she breaks up with you.

The most brutal band to ever exist is...

You should go like them...even if you don't like them.

Pop-rock.

Popular rock music? I would think that fits. If not, then just pop.

Edit: I shouldn't even have posted. I'm not one of those genre nazis. I think of the music more than the category it goes in.

Rock can be pop, just so you know. In fact, even today it quite often is

Rock music is really considered relative to what generation it is coming out from, what context

They were innovative, they played guitars/bass/drums, they were a rock band. Popular music can be hip hop, rock, rap, techno, whatever satisfies the masses.

Edit: Basically dude... if you use 'pop' to define the style of the majority of what's topped the charts through the 90s and 00s, then yes they were a pop band. But I think of pop as what was successful. Elvis, the king of rock? Course his sound wouldn't merit that in today's world. See?

The Beatles are The Beatles, Led Zeppelin are Led Zeppelin and so on. Who care about genres?
#21
the beatles' earlier stuff was influenced by 50s artists such as buddy holly and elvis, who are considered rock (at least in the 50s).

"pop" just describes popular music of an era. in this case, since the beatles were popular, they were pop, but they were also rock music. some people seem to forget that the term rock is really vague and describes a variety of music.

So true!

"My Sweet Lord" was like a friggin rock anthem or smth.

Well seeing how pop means popular, and they were the most famous band ever? Although most of their stuff is like from rock and roll roots, so they are rock still.

So Pop Rock?!

Neither. They went through so many phases, that you can't put them into a single category.
