Classic debate topic, which do you prefer?

I love both, but I'm definitely a Stones guy. Favorite song from either group is "Satisfaction."

If you don't have any taste in music (ie. if you don't like either) please refrain from posting in this topic and/or go jump off the nearest cliff.

rolling stones is good car music and singing along to.

Beatles is good living room music.

But both are (for the most part) lackluster for listening as an activity in itself.

you're not pretentious at all!

i hardly listen to either. the beatles tend to bore me (although they do have some cleverness) and the rolling stones, while they are livelier..... also tend to bore me. they are good for the occasional rocking out though
evidently i only come to ddo to avoid doing homework...

It is odd when one's capacity for compassion is measured not in what he is willing to do by his own time, effort, and property, but what he will force others to do with their own property instead.

Exactly. Neither are at the top of the rock genre, which I assume is the underlying point of this thread--I hardly considered the Beatles rock in the first place.

Zeppelin FTW!!!

Yea. I would choose Led Zeppelin and Bon Jovi over them any day.

How could you equate LED ZEPPELIN with BON JOVI 8(

What is it that makes you think these two bands should be mentioned in the same sentence?

here's bit more zeppelin for you Insert... I know you had to appreciate the difference in the first example, so I think I can leave out the Bon Jovi, right?

This is coming from the same person who thinks the Beatles are just "alright" and that THE MARS VOLTA is better... I'd lol, but it's too sad. If you guys like Led Zeppelin better than the Beatles, then that's cool. It's a preference that you like harder rock. However, Led Zeppelin wouldn't have existed without the friggin Beatles. I'd do a Rolling Stones vs. Beatles debate ANY DAY. The Beatles are undoubtedly the most influential band in rock history. I highly doubt that most people here even know more than the 5 catchiest/popular Beatle songs anyway. And don't get me started about the Texans having an opinion... for christsake's their favorite artist is Jimmy Buffett! [vomits in my mouth a little]. Need I say more?

you can't acknowledge the beatles position in history and at the same time not enjoy listening to them?

I enjoy some of their music, Sgt peppers comes to mind...

but too much of it's just poppy and really straightforward.

you also said that it makes no sense to like the mars volta and not the beatles :P

hard/soft rock is not the only distinction that would lead people to like one band and not the other.

Nope - I said it's non-sensical to laugh at another's taste (ie. comparing Bon Jovi to Led Zeppelin) when another, like me, can completely disagree with YOUR (his) taste of thinking that The Mars Volta is anywhere near as good as The Beatles.

hard/soft rock is not the only distinction that would lead people to like one band and not the other.

Werd. I didn't say that it was, but that's what people were saying (that The Beatles were too soft, poppy, boring, etc.).

There is such a thing as good and bad taste.
