When debating the best/most influental/stands the test of time/best catalog?
Who do you pick and why?
What albums swayed your decision?
Who had the better guitarist (Richards Vs. Harrison)?
Better Vocalists (Lennon/Mccartney vs. Jagger)?
Better hair?
Better Looking?

I don't care, just who is the better band?

For my money I have to go with the Beatles. Rubber Soul and Revolver will change your life when listened to in succesion. Not to mention Sgt. Pepper's is probably THE single most influental album ever recorded.

...annnnnnnnd argue!

Stones for my subjective opinion of their overall output, Beatles if I think about their early pre-Hippy years only.

Trying to be more objective, the Beatles got more adoration from reviewers and made more money as far as I can tell, but the Stones got used in more movie soundtracks.

I'm not saying it the best album ever... it's not even my favorite Beatles album.

However, when talking about innovations that came from this album like the guitar playing, the studio technology, the writing and even the cover art there are few, if any, albums that hold up against Sgt. Peppers.

MEGA JESUS-SAMA
8th July 09, 06:46 PM
Sgt. Pepper's isn't the most influential album of all time because human civilization didn't rise at 1965 and fall at 1973. I think it's a little silly to push Sgt. Pepper's as the most influential considering how little impact the music itself had outside of its genre and that most of the recording techniques were already developed and utilized by other bands.

I couldn't choose one but you could pick a Miles Davis album at random and have something that turned the entire jazz genre on its ear and created its own little bastard subgenres. Nearly every post-bebop development owes its life blood to that man. Sgt. Pepper's impact was comparitively narrow and is hugely overblown. How many artists can said to have definitely taken their inspiration from The Beatles and not any of the hordes of other psych rock groups? How many bands are still seriously considering the Sgt. Pepper's style?

mrblackmagic

I'm kind of tainted because I got on board with the Stones long before I ever listened to Beatles. Actually, I didn't listen to the Beatles until the "Happiness is a Warm Gun" and "Rocky Raccoon" era when they let their hair down.

I would still go with the Stones because even now they are in pretty regular rotation.

Stones, hands down.

The Beatles may have been more widely followed, but the Stones are way cooler.

Yeah, Mick Jagger and Keith Richards may be two of the weirdest guys in rock and roll, and their influence may not be as obvious, but they pretty much influenced more rock bands to get together and break shit than anyone else I can think of if you just pay attention closely to all the people that came behind and tried to look like them, sound like them and be them.

Stones for the win.

Beatles emulators pretty much all just enjoyed being mediocre, while Stones emulators at least tried to make music that sounded kick ass.

The Stones for me. I never really got into the Beatles, like 'sit down and listen to a bunch of albums back to back' listen. Plink plonk plink plonk happy voice liverpudlian lads obscure lyrics plink plonk. No thanks. Seriously, and how the fuck do you dig a pony? Funnily enough I listen more to the covers than the originals for both the Stones and the Beatles; Laibach covered the whole album Let it Be [and it was good] and Devo Satisfaction.

the beatles hands down. they've easily had a greater influence on modern music and came up with more novel ideas and well written music, whereas the stones were slightly more derivative. stones are still brilliant though, frickin' love em.

a day in the life is probably my favourite song ever.

you know who i reckon had quite a big influence on the last century of music? blind willie johnson.


Hendrix's cover of Watchtower.

i'm a big fan of hendrix myself. imo watchtower was the shittiest thing he ever did. very dull, weak musically, and i always thought that dylan was overrated as a writer anyways.

and now, a cover of "satisfation" by another one of my fave artists, cat power:

I disagree, but then again I don't mean "pop" in a pejorative way; rather, they had so much more musical breadth than the Stones (or most anyone else).

For me, "Abbey Road" is a masterpiece from start to finish, but out of 17 tracks only three ("Come Together," "Oh! Darling" and "I Want You (She's So Heavy)") could truly be called rock.

Hendrix is in a class of his own. On The Simpsons, he is shown playing pingpong in Heaven with Ben Franklin. His version of Watchtower is pretty much THE definitive piece of 60's psychedelic rock.

Who did the song-writing for the stones?
The Bealtes gave the Stones 1 song they had been working on, after which Jagger and Richards realised you could write your own music and did. Jagger and Richards did most of the song writing as far as I can tell. I dunno, maybe Ian got involved too, I understand that Brian Jones didn't write so much as was an incredible player. Brian Jones also invented world music, fun fact.

I think the Stones did rock better. I dunno who was the better blues/jazz-cover-band way back before they went into rock. The Beatles may have been more appealing to me if they stayed in rock rather than plink-plonk, but hey, they're known for plink-plonk.

weak, predictable. as lame as the lyrics. doesn't have the creativity, guts and feeling of his best guitar.

He's a very underrated lyricist. Check out 1963... A Merman Should I Turn to Be or Burning of the Midnight Lamp and then SAY THAT TO MY FACE FUCKER.

yeah, those lyrics are certainly good enough for a song.

lyrics don't have to be good for a song to be good. but to my ears watchtower is bad, and all the lyrics do is annoy me even more.

when i say hendrix wasn't a great song writer, i mean the whole song in general, not just the lyrics. it wasn't his strength, nor was singing. that's right, i don't really like his singing either. but he didn't really want to sing in the first place.

he was a master of the guitar, and that's what i listen to him for.

have you heard that jam session where jim morrison walks in high as a kite, grabs the mic and starts screaming nonsense? jimi and the guys just keep playing along with it, improving and coming up with some of the best shit i've ever heard. if you haven't, i'll upload it somewhere.

Oh, thanks for playing but those videos are not The Beatles.

As long as we're playing awesome songs from former Beatles:

My Sweet Lord (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wynYMJwEPH8)
I've got my mind set on you (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-_niy2ZM5Jo)
Band on the run (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CW3Risxm6PY)
Imagine (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=okd3hLlvvLw)

PS... I must be retarded because I can't figure out for the life of me how to embed these videos.

Well we did our best to find Beatles videos from the same era as those Stones videos.. but the Beatles had fallen apart into their own solo projects by then, and that's what they came up with.

I'm not getting your burn on this one... They may not be the greatest songs they've ever made but they are certanly good and there are much better.

I know that.... The songs you posted are much better then the ones he did.

The songs I posted are just pure awesome and are miles and miles above the Rolling Stones songs posted.

So, in conclusion the individual members of the Beatles > The Rolling Stones

Ringo's solo carrer leaves some to be desired, but Paul's (with Wings and Solo), John's and George's (especialy George's IMO) more than make up for it.

Band on the Run is one of the greatest albums released in the last 40 years and you can't say Double Fantasy wasn't amazing.

And I howled at my ma in the driving rain,
But it's all right now, in fact, it's a gas!

Your birthdate has qualified you to avoid being classified as a Cancer upon these boards, but just barely.

You can leave the runway.

They will make me a mod on that day too so perhaps it is YOU who should tread lightly, my friend.

Things fall apart; the centre cannot hold;
Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;

Well, the hope and joy are there, but the flesh is still recovering. My throat can go home to it's family and give them a smile that for the first time two years (days, whatever) is genuine.

I turned 34 June 1st. It is a mere coincidence 3 of the most humorous and intelligent minds in the known universe were all born in the summer of the same year and ended up on Sociocide? I THINK NOT!!!!!

It is destiny. Drawn together by some unexplained force. Bound for some unknown destiny or quest.

Tested in the scorching fires of the internet, the three have been forged FOR GLORY!

I think we were all fathered during the same Rolling Stones tour.
