neither ha i hete both bands

That was completely unnecessary... Why waste a post?

Back on topic, I'm going to have to go with, The Rolling Stones. I personally prefer their style over, The Beatles.

I like the edginess of some Rolling Stones songs and really never got into the Beatles... I just didn't like their lyrics, but the music was written well.

John Lennon was a great musician though and was definitely one of my idols when I first started learning how to play guitar.

I've listened to both and know quite a bit about each, but my vote goes to...

The Rolling Stones

This was a great match-up.

The Rolling Stones because they're were a bit edgier. The Beatles were unquestionably influential, but ultimately made fairly mediocre pop and psychedelia from a retrospective.

I don't understand. You said "retrosepctive," which really threw your entire point off in a random spiraling direction. In retrospective, The Beatles made incredible pop and psychedelia through use of African beats as a result of African Diaspora. It was nothing people have never heard before, and it was inspired by African music being spread throughout the world from the idea of slaves ending. It was a first, and therefore, started everything. If something begins a completely new genre of popular accepted music (accepted as good music, I mind you), you can't call it mediocre.

The Stones, because they had a better rock sound and didn't feel that they had to appeal to everybody. I always felt that they were more rebellious than the Beatles ever were.

Ironically, before George Martin gave The Beatles their big break, John Lennon had lead the band into a type of sound that was unbelievably rebellious. They sang of anything you can think of, from drugs to alcohol, to sex and tons of censored words. Of course, they were forced to "sell-out" quite a bit after they decided to make some real money.

What's not to like? I, like many other people, think they're incredible bands.

The Beatles. Besides everything that Salvidian said, I'd like to add.. both were great bands, but of both, the sound of The Rolling Stones doesn't stick to me like the one of The Beatles does. I really like some of the Stones' songs, but I like pretty much everything coming from the Beatles.

Which band sold out and which band kept their rebellious sound? This is why I voted for the Stones.

That was two weeks ago. Why is this battle still going on?

They were forced to. They were living in the back of a bar in a little 1 room aprtment. All 4 of them. They didn't shower, wash their clothes, and were living off of tips.

What would you have done?
