The Beatles- the most overrated band of all time

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.
Cheers.

Your top 100 list saddens me.

As far as rating and overrating....I think Radiohead gets waaaaaaay more rating than they deserve.

the Ramones > the Beatles

the beatles are ok. radiohead is pretty good. but for my money, i'd take the ramones over the beatles all day, every day, for the rest of my life if i had to. The beatles are indeed overrated.

Far from my favorite band, but I'll give credit where credit is due. Lennon and McCartney are one of the best songwriting duos to ever walk this planet.

Yeah they pretty much set the stage for every single thing that had anything to do with music after them, but definately over rated. I dont listen to much of their stuff, but verse chorus verse chorus pretty much started by them (atleast made popular by them) and still almost every song follow suite. Skynard or g&r most over rated band? I could see that.

I like this guy. He's from Alabama and still has found it in his heart to be honest and admit lynard skynard is overrated. Gnr is OK in my book, but also overrated.

Ha hahahahaha... no. The radio is the devil. It has been for quite some time. The only music worth listening to is music that is a band's or a solo artist's personal art. Not mass produced garbage pumped out by record company puppets with no inspiration. They just follow a formula and try to make the most money possible off their black and white, 2 dimensional "music."

Also if (which i dont) u consider country music, all of the band in that genre, for lack of a better term, would be over rated.

Did we just become best friends? We're the same age and both live in the south where country western music is beyond overrated... especially that neo pop country garbage. Do you like metal and punk rock?

Yeah hard rock and a little progressive rock i guess. I have a soft spot for everything breaking benjamin did because they were the first rock band i ever really got into (until i was 16 and could drive i only thought country came on the radio) i also got on a huge 90's kick for a couple years so pearl jam, bush, 7 marry 3 etc are pretty easy listening for me.

Come Together is an okay song, but i think the Beetles suck donkey balls. Bunch of dirty fucking hippies singing about how great Communism is as far as I'm concerned.

Give me some Hank III or KMFDM.

Liking or not liking the Beatles is fine, but I find it hard to believe anyone with a honest appreciation for music could call them overrated. In 10 short years, all before they were 30 years old, they completely changed popular music and the music industry, influencing practically every musical act since their time.
