I. Fucking. Despise. The Beatles.
How that band got popular, I’ll never understand.
Probably because you’ve never tried… even if you don’t like their songs you gotta respect their ability and what they’ve done.
They where one of the hardest working bands in the history of Rock’n’Roll, playing countless hours live in their early years and just becoming masters of their profession.
Here let me quote:
"The Beatles ended up travelling to Hamburg five times between 1960 and the end of 1962. On the first trip, they played 106 nights, of five or more hours a night. Their second trip they played 92 times. Their third trip they played 48 times, for a total of 172 hours on stage. The last two Hamburg stints, in November and December 1962, involved another 90 hours of performing.
All told, they performed for 270 nights in just over a year and a half. By the time they had their first burst of success in 1964, they had performed live an estimated 1,200 times, which is extraordinary. Most bands today don’t perform 1,200 times in their entire careers. The Hamburg crucible is what set the Beatles apart."
So they had talent and worked their arses off. Now whatever your personal reasons for despising them are, you simply cannot deny their musical ability.
I can and will. The Beatles are sissy ponces who made shit pop songs. Anyone can make shit pop songs. They had no more talent than any other musical ‘artist’ who makes shit pop songs. And playing a lot doesn’t make them great, it means they assaulted far more ears than they rightfully should have with their shitty pop tripe.
Some people treat the Beatles like a fucking religion. It’s a band.
