Mayor_of_Simpleton: 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"?
