**** this ******* post. I have never met a beatles fan who is like that. And just for the sake of discussion, beatles is without a doubt the most influential band of all time. Whether you like them or not, they have helped shape a lot of the music you probably like.

Yep, "most influential ever".
Please spare us the ********, The Beatles were good (at least as far as the late songs go, the first ones are boy-band standard), but nothing of revolutionary.

But what you fail to understand is, that there were no, or very little, 'boy-band standards' when beatles started making music.

Oh yeah, quite a lack of white, well behaved, nice looking boys singing 'bout love n' feelings, before The Beatles.
Yep, no one was doing that, in the fifties and sixties.

Labeling them as "the most influential band of all time" means spitting on the graves of the black people who actually invented what you call rock n' roll.

They are the single most important band of all time. I'm not saying they created the grounds for all popular music since. But there is no single group that has had more influence than the beatles.

Ok the funnyjunk community seriously lacks any understanding of why the Beatles deserve your respect. before the beatles turned up the only real rock and roll music was elvis presley and jerry lee louis. and they all played the same 3 chord rock and roll songs (all following the I-IV-V chord progression). when the beatles came out they brought new elements and new combinations of chords to music. they basically revolutionized the way songs were composed and paved the way for bands like the rolling stones and led zeppelin to come up with even more variation. the beatles are the one's who first started improvising past the rock n roll cliche's and broke free and created a new understanding on how rock n roll music can be composed. if the beatles had not done it, genres like hard and metal wouldn't have come to be.
That is why you should respect the beatles even though you don't like their music.

I don't think they truly revolutionized rock and roll music. While they were busy singing love songs, Led Zeppelin, CCR, and AC/DC were rocking the **** out.

you missed my point if beatles hadnt changed music, from the 3 chord progression there would have never been a led zeppelin or anything else to rock out to. the brought the initial change, that is the most important. led zep, and the rest of them just took from there.

The most annoying thing in the world to me are the girls that say they like "The Beatles" and tell me their favorite one was Ringo   
1. They say they like Ringo because they want to be "different" and cool   
2. Sometimes they base their entire personalities around this band when they don't even like it as much as they like to pretend   
3. Also they go crazy   
I told one that I thought they liked Pre-Teen pop, she and her friends said "No! Are you crazy, I listen to The Beatles"   
Then I say, "You have Fallout Boy, and Metro on your phone."   
But they keep yelling so I just stop giving a ****   
Also she says she likes Zelda, how shes played it so much as a kid, and goes on about it like its her life   
I ask her whats her favorite one, she says shes only played one and doesn't want to bother playing the others. (I still understand that you can be obsessed with a series even if you've only played one title of the game, so this point is debatable)   
Like seriously can these girls stop trying to be something  there not, instead of focusing on being ******* Zoey Deschanele from 500 Days of Summer try something original for christs sake   
I've seen this type of girl like 50 ******* times, you're not cool because you're pretending to be something your not   
   
Picture is what I wanted to do when they kept complaining -_-

But both Beatles fans and Queen fans annoy me when they spam ********* about their favourite band on FJ or other sites.   
I left 9gag because of that, before it was all "le memey xD"

rap master race. as a rap fan i do like rock and roll, metal, funk, etc. i do think The Beatles are a little overrated, i think i only like 2 song by them, i honestly think there are many people who are better than them such as Chuck Berry, Marvin gaye, AC/DC, Atmosphere, Tupac, Issac Hayes, Metallica, etc.

thats like saying heavy metal is just screaming with guitar and drums

as a person who primary listens to music with lots of instruments and complex sounds i find rap to be a bit lacking
metal is normally a three piece band
jazz varies wildly on how many instruments it has but normally has around 5 people doing ****
alternative is not really a genre so you cant say
classical has a whole ******* orchestra
ska 5 is a standard
punk 3 piece is the norm unless you get into the sub genres which always have extra stuff
rap is one guy with a constant base
the point im making is, from my perspective, instrumentation makes the music and rap is utterly lacking in it

and hip-hop master race? i disagree but respect your opinion

but... I like all of those things...   
   
Speaking of, Metal Heads of FJ, do you have any recommendations for people curious about the genre but new to it? I have a friend who's been recommending me an album a week for over a month now, and so far the ones I really love are:   
Metallica - Master of Puppets (I've yet to hear a song of theirs I dislike)   
Megadeth - Rust in Peace   
Lamb of God - Ashes of the Wake   
Judas Priest - British Steel   
Also, I looked up Bastards by Motorhead on my own and loved it. Based on that, do you have any recommendations?

Here's a pretty good essentials list to get you started. If you want my personal reccomendation, I'd go for Mastodon or Baroness if you're looking for something lighter, Dragged into Sunlight or Wolves in the Throne Room if you're looking for something heavier. Also, check out Sunbather by Deafheaven if you think you'd like modern black metal, it's really good.

If you want to look into viking metal you should try Amon Amarth. Other good metal bands to look into are Anthrax (try Madhouse), Pantera (Cowboy From Hell and Walk), August Burns Red (Mariana's Trench), Killswitch Engage (My Curse), A Day To Remember (The Downfall Of Us All and I'm Made of Wax, Larry), Black Sabbath (War Pigs). I know this is not a very complete list of metal bands at all, I just wanted to get a good variety of different styles. Welcome to the family.

I'm into some of those bands as well, but I'd have to say my favourite metal band is Cradle of Filth. I'd recommend looking into Nymphetamine, Thornography, or Darkly, Darkly, Venus Aversa to start. Cradle Of Filth -  The Persecution Song (Drum Cover )
