The Beatles Suck. As in they are shit as a music group. As in they created the Pop Music Hell that we are in now. As in they were pure marketing. Before the Beatles, it would not be uncommon for 4-5 different types of music to be on the top of the charts. For about a decade afterwards? Three guitars and a drummer with shitty noodle lyrics. The only other 'popular' bands that I hate as much as the fuckign beatles are The Doors and the Grateful Dead. The only way the Grateful Dead is in anyway "good" in quotation marks is because the audience was drugged out of their minds. I will shit on the Beatles as a musical group, as a genre, as a cultural phenomena every chance I get.

Elvis and The Rolling Stones were far, far better, more talented, had more range and are worth celebrating. The Beatles will die with the last baby Boomer.
