I've honestly just never given The Beatles a proper listen to even have an opinion about them. And what I have heard in bits and pieces over the radio or what have you just didn't appeal to me.

I know I at least like the lyrics to the songs. Watched Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band when I was little because my mom made me watch it, and I really liked all of the songs. And then when Across the Universe came out I watched that too. Really good songs, but I've never actually listened to the Beatles. Also, Steve Martin and Aerosmith in Sgt. Pepper was awesome.

No, but still. A band's gotta being doing something right if they still manage to be relevant today and even be considering as 'the greatest pop band' from time to time.

I mean, I gotta give 'em credit where it's due. The farthest I'll go in terms of old pop music is generally Queen or somesuch. Beatles just doesn't do it for me. I can see why they're still hailed as pretty ******* neato today though.

yes i went through my phase where i adored the Beatles. it still amazes me how popular they still are and how much of an impact they had on music.

You can dislike 'em, but you can't deny the impact they had on pop music.

And sadly they are still bucketloads better than the pop music we have today.
Instead of evolve, pop kind of.. regressed it seems. Kinda sad, honestly.

Though they honestly aren't that great of a band, they opened a lot of doors for a lot of different genera. Songs like Strawberry fields opened up the whole hippie psychedelic movement to it's kind of music, a lot of modern rock stems from songs like Revolution, and pop was already on the road it's on from 50's swing, Paul just helped expand their fan base with lots of poppy, catchy tunes that were already in style, which then hooked people onto all their other stuff. If not amazing musically, The Beatles did start/popularize a lot of music styles that still go on today.
