.......the beatles are the greatest band of all-time, prove me wrong.

This is basically the argument that i have with all my friends that have no musical taste at all.

.......the beatles are the greatest band of all-time, i can't prove you wrong

This is an argument you won't have with me.

I cannot leave this thread alone. I cannot get over the sponsored fap. Out of curiosity, can i ask how your mum decided to pay for your fapping material? Why can't you just get it free? WHY?

the musicianship, innovation, and raw talent shown in all of these vids are small samples of only a few of the bands that cast a huge fat shadow over the beatles

beatles are good at making music that is pleasing to the ear hence why they are so popular in modern culture

as far as creativity and soul... dont expect to find much of that when listening to the beatles

dont post led zeppelin stuff... they are good, my second favorite band. but the beatles are far more superior. the lyrics they wrote are amazing. robert plant's lyrics really arent all that special. im not going to put down led zeppelin cus i love them. ringo's drums are almost hypnotising. and every song john lennon or paul writes is incredible. and the guitar riffs and chords george comes up with are impossible to repeat.

I have a friend who's all hard rock and stuff, i hate it when he tells me the beatles suck. just cause they're not "heavy" enough. This isn't even an argument, the beatles rock.
To say of what is that it is not, or of what is not that it is, is false, while to say of what is that it is, and of what is not that it is not, is true.

If I didn't have a severe headache I'd argue the hell out of this with you. With such extraneous circumstances, I will just say Herman's Hermits.

Epiphone Les Paul

Sorry to bump an old topic.. but your friend needs a reality check. Tell him to get baked and put on a little Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.

Its hard to look at their music now (40 years later) and feel it as it must have felt in the 60's when it was unlike anything ever heard. What band today could you say...wow, that is not just different but amazing. They were definatly worthy of the hype. That being said there is only about a dozen songs out of hundreds they wrote that I could say I like.

The beatles were clever. They gained popularity with "I wanna hold your hand" etc. Good stuff - don't get me wrong. However, once they established themselves as super popular, they went totally bizarre in their music and made the best music ever.
Whatever they felt like.

I really believe if they had come out with the white album first (before they were known) it would have bombed and would have been considered too weird.

I want to see Ringo and Paul get together with some other musicians and make a DVD of St Pepper's album played in full, nonstop. Sounding exactly like the record!
That would be a best seller. Don't you think?

Like pink floyd pulse disc 2!!!

No such thing as worst or greatest, however I do hate the beatles, but respect what they did for music, and recording, I they are just simple pop music (I do like Sgt. Pepper) and I think they are vastly overrated.

So what if they were good musicians?As far as I know most of the examples you posted were recorded/played after The Beatles ended,and most of them are pretty diferent genre.Beatles are pop,Led are kind of hard rock,GD and PF are psychedelic(which,The Beatles helped establish with Sgt Peppers.And PF was recording on studio3 of abbey road while the beatles were there).There's not much of a comparison you can establish.
By the way,I've seen many stories of Jimmy Page using some riffs from old blues songs,so don't go bashing other band's creativity if the ones you like aren't 100% original,right?

And by the way,no one needed yours 'don't say I have no musical taste...',people have different musical tastes and you should know not everyone in the world will like the same songs as you.
