I realize this might be the equivalent to tossing a lit cigar into a munitions plant but here goes. IMO The Beatles are hands down the most overrated band in history. There is a thread on TW asking members their top 10 bands, even if there was top 100 band thread The Beatles would not make my list. I only have one Beatles song in my entire Itunes collection, “Paperback Writer” ('cause I like the geetar), and I seriously doubt I'll ever acquire another Beatles song again.
Radio stations across the country often have the “top 500 songs of all time” contests around holidays. And invariably the number one song is “Hey Jude” or “Let it Be”, to my mind a couple of plodding and uninspired songs as all get out. I don't hate The Beatles, if I was on a desert island and only had The Beatles to listen to, I would (all the while wishing I had something else). I just think there are gobs of better bands and songs.
So if you agree with me, chime in. If not...well...I've battened down the hatches, braced myself, and ready to absorb all the ill will, derision, vitriol, and hate anyone can muster.
