There are a number of bands I’d pick over the Beatles. Musically they really weren’t all that special. The Beach Boys were even better both vocally and musically.

The Beatles are so over-rated it blows my mind.

on February 24, 2015

The beatles invented everything that other bands surpassed them at. But the beatles were expansive, growing in every direction and clearing the path for new better music that wouldnt be there without them. Extremely underrated

The Beatles in 5 years wrote rubber soul revolver Sgt peppers. Mystery tour white album abbey road and let it be..besides led zeppelin nobody has put out that many consecutive influential albums in that span of time

The Beatles weren’t that special?  Wait, is it possible you can’t hear them properly because your head is so far up your butt?

If you’re really into a band that wrote all their songs using three chords, they’re great.

You must not know much about music if you honestly think that.

Led Zeppelin debuted their first album in 1969 which for me, is enough to say that they were at least ONE OF the greats of the 1960’s.

on February 10, 2015

Zeppelin was definitely a great group.

With a tip of the cap to the amazing Beach Boys, The Who and The Kinks, you can choose from the following list:
The Beatles

Thank you and good night.

on February 10, 2015

The “Kinks”” Should be the “Stinks.” You’d figure that a band that has been around for at least a zillion years would have at least a couple of good tunes. The Grass Roots had more hits hits in a 6 month period.

on February 10, 2015

Either you’ve never heard of “Waterloo Sunset,” “Days,” “Lola,” etc…. or your taste in music was went up with the Hindenburg explosion.

on February 10, 2015

I think you have freshly evacuated dog feces in your ears. “Lola’s” ultra- boring, monotonous sounds sound like it was written by a three year in between sessions of fingerpainting iduring Pre K. The rest of their crap ain’t much better.

on February 11, 2015

…so the Hindenburg it is. 

my regrets. I hope you regain your sense of taste. It will be difficult, but maybe if you really push yourself, you could… nah… what am I saying: Just give up.

on February 12, 2015

My three year old niece and nephew could no doubt compose better tunes than the “Stinks.” For a band that’s been around since the days cavemen walked the Earth, you’d figure they’d have a much more impressive body of work. LOLA is the rock and roll equivalent of “CHOPSTICKS.” It’s tuneless, boring, repetitive, and just a horrible song by a horrible band. There’s zero excitement to them. I think even the DiFranco Family had more pizazz to their songs. The “Stinks” just didn’t have that charismatic, song busting commando, lead singer like Daltrey, Morrison, Jagger, Kay, McGuinn, etc. And spare me the tired old, “but they were part of the British Invasion.” Yeah, yeah we all know that, but so what. Zeppo was part of the Marx Brothers, and he’s missed like the last turd I flushed down.

on February 12, 2015

You are so wrong about the Kinks. Come on… You Really Got Me? 20th Century Man? All Day And All Of The Night? Really?

on February 12, 2015

Yes, REALLY Liz. Can you honestly say that the coma inducing “You really got me” is in the same league as “Light My Fire” or “Won’t Get Fooled Again”? Or is the yawn inducing (do they have anything BUT?)  “All Day And All Of The Night” comparable to “8 Miles High”, “Born To Be Wild”, or The HOLLIES “Long Dark Road”?

Exactly… but don’t even waste your time, Liz… Lanza’s been banging his head on the idiot wall so long, that whatever he posts in these threads is pretty much just drool. He thinks The Kinks suck, Muhammad Ali was overrated and Sarah Palin is the best. Lanza has actually hit the trifecta of stupid. So congrats to him… I guess.

on February 16, 2015

Again….more nonsense, absurdity, and illogic from everyones favorite jackass, the one and only ZenPoop. Even though common sense says never argue with a retard, I’ll try the impossible, and inject some facts into ZenPoop’s fattening head at this late date. (Empty pause for several long, uncomfortable minutes as ZenPoop finishes struggling through the above 2 sentences. No problem. We have plenty of time….yawn) Finished yet? No? Too bad, we’re moving on. Okay then. NEVER did I ever say ANYWHERE that Sarah Palin is “the best.” Can you show us exactly where I said that? We didn’t think so. So that’s just more fiction and fabrication being formulated by that steaming load of freshly evacuated watery feces residing inside your head. It’s alright, since no one had ever accused you of bringing much credibility to the table in the first place, we weren’t expecting much from you. Getting back to what I was saying before,  I said Sarah was attractive…not “the best.” There is a difference you know. Maybe when the Special Ed kid who’s tutoring you gets you completely through the entire alphabet you will understand better, but we’re not holding our breath waiting for that to happen. Whoever was reading my post to you either read it to you incorrectly, or you weren’t paying attention, simple as that. As for Muhammad Ali, I wouldn’t expect a “keyboard commando drip” like you to know too much about the sweet science of boxing. Squash, and Dungeons and Dragons maybe, but certainly not boxing. And yes, he was overrated, and I’ll be happy to prove it to anyone who wants to discuss it on my post. Even though I’m sure you’re pretty ignorant in your knowledge of boxing, you’re probably familiar with physical violence in some shape or form, more than likely from being separated from your lunch money every day on the school bus. Say goodnight, ZenPoop.

on February 16, 2015

Good to know you’re capable of actually learning. I’m glad you’re finally admitting that Sarah Palin is disgusting piece of crap. Breathe in the air of reality. It’ll help you.  Now you can turn your attention to getting to understand the sport of boxing. Clearly you’ve been hit in the head too many times. Sorry about that. They’re called concussions. Hopefully you’ll get over them… but judging by your moronic take on The Kinks, I doubt it.  Night, night, poor, little dim-bulb, Lanzer!

My own personal favorite is STEPPENWOLF

on February 11, 2015

ROFLMAO!!!

on February 12, 2015

Go back to listening to your MENUDO, Zenslop.

on February 16, 2015

ROFLMAO!!! Steppenwolf!!!! 

…and he disses the Kinks!

priceless.

on February 16, 2015

STEPPENWOLF had better songs in their 5 year peak from 68-72, then the STINKS had in their countless year career. You really think “Lola” compares to “Born To Be Wild? ” Does “You Really Got Me” match up with “Magic Carpet Ride”? I’m not saying the STINKS wouldn’t sell out a concert venue much faster than STEPPENWOLF (Mainly due to too many people like you who have their taste in their ass) but it doesn’t make their crappy music any better. STEPPENWOLF was never a mainstream band, they were more of a cult band.Than again ZenPoop, stick to the music you’re most familiar with, like Liza Minelli Showtunes.

on February 16, 2015

blah, blah, blah, STEPPENWOLF, blah, blah… 

Every time you write something it just makes the world a sadder place. Tip: If you want people to listen to your little pet band (that can’t measure up to The Kinks), stop talking about  them and go away. That will help.

on February 16, 2015

I believe STEPPENWOLF is a better band, but then again, a hardcore biker band like them probably makes you shit yourself when you hear them, so you’re more comfy listening to your own boring, wimpy, drippy bands, Lo-lo-lo-lo-lola……LMAO.  Every time you inhale and exhale it makes the world a sadder place. Now put your crack pipe down, and go back to having wet dreams about Ray Davies. Your stupidity, which was amusing at first, is now getting tiresome. Say Goodnight, ZenPoop.

on February 17, 2015

“hardcore biker band” LOL! I think you’re confusing them with your other favorite bands: The Archies and The Monkees.

on February 17, 2015

Actually asshole, both THE ARCHIES and MONKEES were pretty good bubblegum bands. Ron Dante, who was the lead singer of the ARCHIES was also the lead singer of the CUFFLINKS which had a big hit with TRACY, another classic bubblegum tune. Now if we throw you a stick will you finally disappear?

on February 17, 2015

I’m playing you like a banjo. I’m a fan of pop music… including “Sugar, Sugar,” and a lot of The Monkees’ songs. I think Steppenwolf is talented. But you come off like a complete idiot when talking about The Kinks… so I thought I’d fight fire with fire. 

But I’ve grown weary of your turgid takes… so have at it.

on February 18, 2015

You’re not playing anybody, Mr. Coward. I’m actually having a lot of fun with this. You seem to be the nerdy, little drip who deludes himself into thinking he’s getting over on someone, when you really haven’t a clue as to how the game is played. Just the fact that you’re at this site at all shows you’re probably a fan of many of the same groups. I gave you my opinion of the STINKS. I said they’re way overrated when you compare them to other groups of that same era like THE BEATLES, STONES, WHO, HOLLIES, BYRDS, THE DOORS and many others. My opinion. Now go back to spilling your juices over Ray Davies.

I like the Beatles. However, I have to say the Kinks. The first punk band.

A lot of the Beatles’ stuff is total tripe. Basically all their early stuff is. Hey Jude is probably one of the worst songs ever written.

Naturally, this question is meaningless — it’s impossible to pick one BEST musician or group — but to the extent that it’s possible to select one outstanding entry, of course it’s the Beatles. People who like to describe the Beatles are “overrated” are just trying to clever (or are actually ignorant). We don’t judge them from the perspective of today; they no longer mean what they once did. You judge them by their importance in their time.
