The "reasoning" behind this appointment to the #1 spot is because they charted an album at #1?

What if a bunch of people just rushed out and bought an album that sucks?

This thread is perfect proof that without football on Sunday's something as horrible as this can and will happen!

Possessive, certainly.

Guys, he's an obvious troll. Just check out his product reviews.

The people who are taking the OP seriously scare me more than the OP himself. :o

The Bay City Rollers are better than Elvis!

Just from the use of "It's official," I kinda figured the OP was just a sarcastic rebuke to other posters' tendencies to use chart positions and sales figures in arguments to "prove" the superiority of their favorite bands/artists. :D

I don't really like the Beatles but I know that One Direction does not even come close to the Beatles! That's for sure! I even think The Wanted is way better that One Direction.

Actually, Im afraid he IS serious, but not about One Direction being so good. I think his point is people use The Beatles high sales and all their #1 albums to prove they were the best. There is no 'best". It's a matter of opinion, but The Beatles were/are the most popular band in history. It only means a lot of people thought their music was very good.

I could be wrong, but I think it's just another Beatles "hater" thread. One Direction may have hit #1, but like I said already, come back in 50 years and see if anyone is still arguing about their greatness or lack thereof....or even remember who they were.

I agree, Hinch, that it's another Beatles' hater thread. But, not being a big Beatle fan myself, I did find it funny because I've been in situations where, as a last resort, SOME Beatles fans will pull out the 'sales' card.

That doesn't change the fact that I don't feel it was to be taken all that seriously.

Sales only proves popularity. Long term popularity says a lot more than short term, but I agree, one doesnt have to(or should) like an artist only because of popularity. There are many artists I like who were not so popular, and there are some I dont like who WERE popular.

Threads like these can be fun, but I agree, they shouldnt be taken too seriously. Has the originator of the thread even posted since his initial post?

It's official: The number of threads started saying that a certain band is better than the greatest and most influential group of all time has become redundant.

Remember when the Bay City Rollers were supposed to be the next Beatles? LOL

Don't call the musically-challenged reduntant as they like to be called ELVIS FAN.

I just love the way some minds work, or don't. Some brainless boyband's crap went to #1 and their better than the Beatles? Try looking at the kids that are buying their crap, it's like candy to them. They're not interested in musical ability, they are jumping on the latest fad because all the other kids are doing it. The Beatles were talented musicians, are any boybands? It's like comparing Bach to Britany Spears.

"YOU LEAVE BRITANY ALONE!!!"

As quoted by Pork Finkmaster of the number one band One Direction.
