Even though it was a long time ago, The Beatles changed popular culture in a lot of ways. They didn't just change popular music - they altered popular culture. Even Kings wanted to meet them, not just the King's daughters. Their music changed significantly in just a few short years and THEIR AUDIENCE DEVELOPED WITH THEM. Try that, NStink or Justin Poopypants. The Beatles had seven-minute-long songs on the radio; songs that start A Capella; they had the first use of feedback to start a pop song; first song with a string quartet on the radio, songs way beyond the old I-IV-V, and many many more innovations. They wrote their OWN SONGS, fer Kryssake. The Beatles did it all first. OK, so they don't rock like Metallica or something... so what? It's a long way from "Love Me Do" to "Eleanor Rigby", especially in a year or two.

When you guys get a little older you'll be able to put things in a historical perspective. Popular music right before the Beatles was Pat Boone blandly ripping off RnB. It's not unreasonable to say the Beatles SAVED Pop Music.

Now where can I buy that "20 minute recording of Ringo farting on a snare drum"?

And then there's this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ueBUFUWSXHs
Before Black Sabbath, before Led Zeppelin. Without this song, there might not be any Metallica. And it was written by the cute, poppy one.

alternate Beatles takes are far more interesting than most groups 'hits'

So the BBC can find dreck like this, but they're POSITIVE there's absolutely no trace of the early Doctor Who episodes...
