Just my opinion, The Beatles are really over rated. I'm not saying they're terrible, I just don't think they're musical geniuses. They essentially were the 1 Direction of the 60's. Again, just my opinion.

They invented modern music:    
   
bands writing their own songs   
the music video   
album artwork   
the synthesis of classical forms into popular music    
   
   
I could go on...

>invented modern music
**** NO. They may have inspired many pop artists, but they sure as hell didn't invent every single type of modern music today.
And, according to Mr. Nemmex, "More than half their hits were written by african-american rock and roll and pop artists from the 50s"
There was definitely music videos and album artwork before the beatles.
All those points were aroundbefore the beatles, they just got famous and had all those qualities wrapped into one.

I don't think they suck at all, I realize they have talent. I just think they're really over rated.

I don't really like the Beatles much myself, prefer techno or classical music, but one direction just pisses me off so much.

Yeah, they piss me off too. What i think people don't realize is that I'm not saying The Beatles are as bad as 1D, they're nowhere near the amount of ********** 1D has. I'm saying that they were the 1D of the 60's- A group of good-looking guys from Britatin who became international heartthrobs.

Please don't ever compare One Direction to the Beatles. The Beatles had actual musical talent, original lyrics, and weren't self-obsessed and arrogant pricks. They worked hard to earn there fame, and used it for good. One Direction got lucky. It doesn't matter if you like their music or not - that's a matter of opinion. But they deserve their way more credit than 1D. You can't possibly even compare the two.

Like I've said a million ******* times, I realize they have talent. However, they were a ******* boy band. Someone took some good looking guys and made them into a heartthrob. Just like 1D.

You just went full retard.

You do realize there was almost nothing else like them in the 60s, making them innovative and pioneers of Rock.

You are dumb. You are really dumb.

For real you ******* ugly gay cunt I hope a ****** caresses your testicles.

-"I wanna hold your haaaand, I wanna hold your hand."
-"Shake it up baby now, twist and shout. C'mon c'mon c'mon baby now, c'mon and work it all out"
-was adored by hundreds of teenage girls
I'm not saying they always made songs like this, they did make some great songs, but really. They were a 60's boy band.

The only difference is that they made their own songs, played their instruments, and had talent.
Though I think what helps them is the fact that their music managed to stay relevant somehow. I'm guessing maybe it's because of all the pot heads who thought, "Hey they get high, we get high, lets support them." and they made them a group that many can't stop hearing about, then little kids grew up thinking grown ups like that music, so they did too to sound really mature, and they grew up to become hipsters that we know and loathe.
That, and the fact that we're not being bombarded by 50 radio stations that have their music on loop to the point it's annoying like they did with everything by LMFAO, Justin Beiber, and every other pop artist ever.

Like my comment below said, blame the record labels. they're the ones who said "Hey, The Beatles got famous off of 4 good looking guys who made music, lets copy that!" And basically ****** over music like that. I agree, they did have talent, and made good songs. I just don't like their style and think they're over rated.

Yeah, I think they're blown way over proportion and treated like they made a movement or something.
But everyone has their tastes and no one can accept that sometimes people don't like things even though everyone else does.

Again, not anything like One Direction. They were a pop band that turned into so much more. One Direction are effectively merchandise. Comparing The Beatles to One Direction is like comparing Patti Smith to Avril Lavigne or comparing Bob Dylan to James Blunt.

That's what I'm saying. They were a boy band that basically started all that ****. Again, they made some great songs, but in essence, they were a boy band that lasted longer than the modern ones. If you wanna blame someone, blame the record labels. They're the ones that make these boy bands and have them last at most 5 years. If the Beatles were around today, they'd be raped up the ass by those guys.

The Beatles probably wouldn't do pop if they were around now. They played rockabilly and showed a genuine love for music early on. They all played instruments like in a band. One Direction are 5 dancers.

Modern boy bands are just about the image, it's all the girls really care about.
Rich white boys who get paid to say music writer's words and thoughts want to hold your hand at a nominal fee.
