    how can a band that accomplshed the following(see below)be called overrated:

    the beatles inspired other artists and bands to write their own songs,they changed the artist/producer relationship in the studio,they changed the way music was made in the studio,they made an impact on pop culture that's being felt even as we speak,they made it fashionable for men to have long hair,they changed the way people perceive rock groups by not having the standard front man with backing group,they redefined what it meant to be an international celebrity,they inspired other musicians to use certain instruments and music companies to make instruments,they inspired other bands and artists to speak their minds about the relevant issues of the day,helped to change the perception of the rock album from being a collection of songs to a work of art,unofficially made english the language of rock and roll(thus inspiring many overseas musicians to learn english),lennon and mccartney were among the 1st songwriters to have a stake in the publishing of their songs,helped to inspire other rock groups to create their own record labels,they brought the music of india to the west by being the 1st western musical act to use indian instruments on their records,they were the ones who created music videos(though other artists like queen,MJ,and duran duran perfected the art form.they used the blueprints the beatles drew up!),one of the 1st acts to take a stand for civil rights

    need i go on...

    i think this quote from the compleat beatles says it better than i ever could:"it must be stoically accepted that the beatles were in the end a phenomenon of the 60's,the 70's and beyond were only to feel their influence."

    it's been almost 50 years since the beatles came out and 40 years since they broke up and the beatles are still remembered,talked about,and still influencing artists to this day!

    now to elaborate on how the beatles took a stand on civil rights:in september of 1964,the beatles were giving a concert in jacksonville,fl at the gator bowl,well word had gotten out to the beatles that the audience at the concert was going to be segregated,well the beatles and brian epstein sent a letter to the venue owners stating that if this was the case that they could have their money back and that the beatles would boycott the performance,of course racially seperating the audience was never planned,but it said a lot about the beatles to take such a stand!also on that same tour,at a stop in philadelphia,the beatles were dismayed to find the entire audience for that show(13,000)were all white!

    if anyone is overrated it's the jonas brothers and all the other disney artists!

    they needed a mouse to get famous for pete's sake!

    also all the boy bands,teen pop acts,and teen idols are overrated as well because all they did was sell millions of dollars worth of merchandise,records,concert,and movie tickets and didn't make an impact outside of a commercial one!

    so tell your sister to put this in her pipe and smoke it!

    Any band that has had the staying vigour of The Beatles, can't be regarded as overestimated. Some individuals would possibly not like The Beatles and are worn out of listening to some thing to do with them, however that does not lead them to overestimated both.The Beatles might write high-quality songs and the ones songs are nonetheless protected by means of band in these days. They might additionally sing very good and had a aura approximately them. The Beatles could also be the Beethoven or Mozart of our new release and live to tell the tale ceaselessly within the tune international.

    They are timeless band and they will never go away. They owned their era and much like everything else.. eras change and new trends are born. However I can only think of a handful of musical giants that rocked the world.. and will withstand the test of time.. this include The Beatles, MJ, and probably Elvis (not including classical).

    As far as their music goes it is very good. Their song writing skills are excellent and great performers. If someone says they are overrated chances are they are either young, or lack musical sense.

    If you listen to the Beatles, and then listen to anything else recorded during the same time period, you can't help but respect the quality of song writing, recording techniques, musicianship and overall quality. No other group or person pushed the boundaries of contemporary music as did the Beatles.

    Personally, I think they are way overrated. I like a few of their songs, but I'm for sure not a fan of em.

    i think so... I think music is an enjoyment, it's really unnecessary to get too crazy over the singers.
