Just curious ;)

I don't like the beatles... honestly
i think that yellow submarine is an animation masterpiece, but I don't really like the music...

I just wanna know who else belong to this little minority who doesn't like the beatles ...

PS: I don't mean that their music has to burn in hell or that lennon deserved to die... i just don't like the beatles.. that's all

I like a couple of Lennon's solo stuff but the Beatles are definitely over-rated!

I'm going to translate u2popmofo's post:

"I'm speechless"

*I hope that I'm right*

if you dislike them, yet respect their influence on music, then OK. not good, but that's just your opinion. i don't really enjoy listening to jimi hendrix, and sometimes find his stuff overrated, but i don't claim he didn't have any kind of impact on music.

if you flat-out do no like them, listen to any form of rock/pop music, and still think they suck shit, then you are an idiot. don't take it personally. this is the reason i couldn't bring myself to like REM for several years (read something once were michael stipe said the beatles didn't mean a fucking thing to him).

Michael Stipe was a pretentious bastard for a while in the 80s. That said, I love the Beatles and REM.

I think the Beatles are overrated, but I like a few of their songs.

I own Sgt. Pepper and really like it, but I just never really took the time to explore The Beatles.

the beatles must have been awesome in their time.

but because i live today, they don't sound fresh or relevant to me. i can understand why people like them though.

the funny thing is, that it seems "obligatory" to like the beatles if you listen Rock/pop music, and some people say that your are an "idiot" if you simply don't like them. I don't like rock bands just because i have to or because they are important in history and stuff like that. a lot of my friends doent like U2 but i don't think they are idiots...

Obviously, nobody can deny the musical and comercial influence they had, but there's no a law that says that you HAVE to like them!!!... besides, like i said before, saying "I dont like them" doesn't mean "they suck"...

This is my favorite thing I've read here so far today.
