Has there been a better band than The Beatles?

In terms of amount of great songs and albums, especially in such a comparatively short period of time?

There have been better live bands, but has any group amassed as great a discography?

It's all subjective. When you say great songs and albums - others might not think they're so great. They may just not like the music.

The thing with The Beatles is that most people will find a song they like amongst the catalogue.

Not many bands have that.

Apart from the ARt of Noise.

Name any decent track written in the past twenty years and it will have routes with The Art of Noise.

Radiohead maybe, although they have far less crossover appeal/pop songs. In fact, their stuff is a lot like The Beatles later stuff.

Blur....no. Personal preference only goes so far - Blur will not be remembered in 30 years time as anything other than a footnote in Oasis's history.

I prefer Pink Floyd, The Smiths, Radiohead, Talking Heads but each to their own.

oh, and The Weathergirls.

All those bands are very good, but none of them has as extensive a discography as The Beatles.

The Stones were better live and had some great songs, but I'd only say Exile on Main St. was a great album.

Beatles were the first Boy band,,

I love Led Zep but I still think The Beatles made better albums.

Zep undoubtably better live and also some of the all-time great rock songs, but technically and artistically I'd put them behind The Beatles.

I liked the Beatles, when they discovered hallucinogenic drugs, their early stuff was dire. Still prefer the stones though.

Beatles = Boy band for the white masses, not a crossover and produced mindless crap, most ripped off from other less know artists (FACT)

Yes we all know how the naughty white man stole from the black man.:roll:

Nice variation on the stock response to Elvis fans though:thumbsup:

Besides Exile, I don't think the Stones had a great album. Lots of great tracks though.

Also, not much progression or experimentation beyond their early blues roots.

technically? Led Zep were WAY ahead of their time technically. Jimmy Page especially. He created his own sound!

He's probably one of the greatest guitarists of all time and I love Led Zep, but their stuff got progressively worse in my opinion.

Maybe The Beatles would've got worse as they went on but they late stuff is among their strongest.

EDIT - and as great as Page was, Harrison is perhaps one of the most underrated guitarists of all time.

There have been one or two bands more over-rated than the beatles.

Not many though.

I remember when it was cool to say The Beatles were 'overrated'.

How very retro - usually spouted by people who have never actually listened to the 'White Album' the whole way through:whistling:

You like them?

I don't.

If that's ok of course?

In fact thinking about it yours is one of the most pompous replies I've heard in a long time. I didn't attempt to be 'cool' I just stated that imo they are over-rated. And no, I haven't listened to the 'White Album' part of the way through let alone the whole way. Purely because I can say, hand on heart, that I do not like a single Beatles track so have never felt the desire to listen to it. So what you are saying is that I cannot say I don't like The Beatles until I have listened to every album of theirs, just to make sure?

Hardly sulking, just characterising the 'stock' criticisms as such, devoid of any real input from the person posting them.

Also, making it a racial issue is a bit cheap:thumbsup:
