There are so many variations of anti-Beatle threads in the music forums. If it isn't about them stealing music and ideas from somebody it's naming artists who were better than the Beatles to accusations they destroyed rock and roll. It seems every day it's something else about them and it's always negative.
I don't really know if it's the same people/person behind them all, but it seems to be driven by a fervor that usually only rascists and religious zealots have. It's always something looking to discredit them and proclaim they suck. Out of every artist I have ever known of or about, I have never seen anyone get piled on this much. Gary Glitter didn't get this much hate when it came out about his sexual weirdness and perversity. The Dixie Chicks didn't get this much heat when they dared use their right to freedom of speech. (Except from Clear Channel- Oh wait! That was a spontaneous, un-orchestrated totally random blacklisting that happened at the same time by, coincidentally, all the Clear Channel owned stations that played that kind of music.)
I swear, it seems if some current headlining music artist slaughtered his/her entire family, set fire to the building he/she lived in, went on a high speed road-rage rampage that injured hundreds, gave millions to terrorists, drowned a litter of puppies, and then sold military secrets
to the Russians and Chinese it would get 'meh' here, the thread would die within a day and a half and we'd be back to 'Name 10 inanimate objects you think are better muscians than the Beatles."
Personally, I like the Beatles but I'm not fanatical about them. I have all their releases as I do with most other artists I like. I don't listen to them frequently, but occasionally I do and enjoy it immensely. They are just one of hundreds if not thousands of artists I like and a fraction of a percent of my music collection.
They stopped being a current force in music decades ago. Their presence is really zilch other than their catalog is still for sale and they get an occasional play on radio. Nothing much else is said or written about them these days. Yet, no other artist from their era gets smeared and dissed to the degree they get hammered here. I do understand nobody likes every artist but there is just such an incredible amount of anti-Beatle stuff it is hard to believe. I've never seen a dislike of an artist more passionately displayed than love of an artist. It's so non stop and repetitive it reminds me of psycho-stalker ex-significant other type of unrelenting madness in creating hell on earth for another. Except this has no point I can see.
Worse, it's always the same warmed over opinionated rectal droppings that has been said a hundred times already. It's never anything new or original and nothing about it is thought provoking other than what's the point of it all. The Billy Joel thread makes more sense!
Why all this anti-Beatle obsession to begin with and why isn't it enough to simply not like them?
Why do you think this obsession exists to keep going after them without pause and why exclusively here to this degree?
What do you think drives the Beatle haters that create those threads to need continual reassurance that there are others who also don't like the Beatles and need them to join the hate-fest?
Are you getting tired of seeing the same pointless issue brought up over and again?
