Beatles Suck?I was talking with this musician. He said he didn’t like the Beatles. He said that he only likes maybe 3 or 4 good songs from their entire catalog. Wing’s stuff included.

“They are overrated.” He said

I said.”What?”

“You heard me.”

I guess so.  I was practicing some selective hearing there. It always freaks me out when I hear that kind of thing. Only 3 good songs.  Very strange.

Back in my 20’s I remember I was sweet on this girl. She was real pretty. I met her at a gig. We covered some Beatles songs.

She invited me over to her house and put on some music.  Some rap stuff I had never heard before. Luke Skywalker or something.

When it was finally over I asked her: “Got any Beatles?”

She said.. No, I don’t like the Beatles.


They suck and they can’t sing.

I said….”What?”

“You heard me.”

It was a deal breaker. I didn’t like rap back then and for her to consider this Luke guy to be better than the Beatles seemed ridiculous to me.

Isn’t the Beatles trademark the vocal quality of their songs? That can’t sing? Again, very strange.

Lately I have been on a Google kick. Playing around with searches and seeing what come’s up #1 for a given search.

Tonight I searched: Where the Beatles overrated?  I felt lucky

When I first scanned the page I thought….Well that’s kinda weak. Come on Google.  You can do better than that.  But the more I studied it the more amused I became.

I guess it was a good choice. The Google search widget is entertaining.

He doesn’t make much of a case as to why they are overrated tho. He just talks about how they suck and how many people he pisses off every year the page is up.  He probably get’s tons of traffic.

He really should put up some Google ad’s there since Google  show’s  so much love.  But then the ad’s would probably display Beatles stuff. Go figure.

That would be hypocrisy tho huh?

If you want to make a case as to why the Beatles are overrated and suck I’m ready to listen.  To each their own of course.  They are overrated, I agree.  But then they have some serious notariety too.

To completely disrespect, especially for a musician.. Is, well, strange...
