Let's settle this once and for all....Beatles or Stones?

Recommended Posts

I love both to till the death, but if someone pressed a gun to my head and forced me to choose I would have to choose The Stones. Only because my love for the Blues is way too strong and the beatles did some weird stuff later on that didnt really get me goin'. 

 

How about yall, is it Beatles or Stones?

Come on, some of the Stones later stuff was absolute <deleted>, and at least most people of our age can remember most of The BEatles songs. OK granted, the Stones have been going for 50 years more than The Bs so more time to write <deleted> ! 

 

The deleted words are shit with an e on the end

Most definitely the Beatles. The Stones are not even a close second. Jagger? Really? I did not like alot of their earlier music. But from the White album forward, what can one say? The music still sounds fresh fifty years later.

Yeah, same reasons, I would go for the Stones.

 

Arguably the impact of the Beatles has been bigger - and it is great to see them celebrated in the latest good feeling Brit film "Yesterday".

Could it be argued that without the Beatles there may have been no Rolling Stones. The Stones first release was 'Come On' one of Chuck Berrys songs, which got to number 21 in the charts, then the Beatles gave them one of their songs 'I wanna be your man' which reached number 11. So who knows, but I prefered the Beatles as a young boy, but these days I probably like each group as much.

Blues vs. Pop?

Well, if we must compare the two, I choose the Blues.

The Rolling Stones win.

I would say that  they started developing from "Revolver" onwards mysef,which coincided with their experimentation with LSD. "Tomorrow Never Knows" etc. But The White Album is immense.

Its a bit like arguing Hendrix over Clapton. Both are brilliant for different reasons.

I know it's hard dude. it's near impossible for me.

 

but if I was forced into it at gunpoint I would say stones every time.

 

They just had that attitude that the beatles wish they had!

Stones by a short half head for me, I like them both but the Stones concerts I have been to were awesome.
