    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!

    I don't like their music; to be honest I just find it boring. And yes, I also think they're a bit overrated. However I definitely do NOT hate them!!! I respect them greatly and even though I don't like their music, I still think they're a wonderful band. If they had never existed, some of my favorite bands might never have existed either.

    My favorite band is Hanson, and I would consider them better, but you must understand that that's just my opinion. Hanson are Beatles fans, so I'm sure they would disagree with me.

    The Beatles are my favorite of all time. They set the stage and influenced all rock acts that followed. Their music is still relevant and popular today, and has stood the test of time. How many other rock acts have that kind of staying power? Some, but not many.

    They are like the most talented, experienced, classic band ever.

    They CHANGED THE WORLD with their music. John Lennon and Paul McCartney were the greatest songwriters in the history of music.
