The Monkees; they outsold the Beatles in 1967. Plus these are opinions, so you will got LOTS of different answers.

My older sister bought those teen mags at the time and one had a contest who was better, the Monkees or the Beatles.

The Monkees won.

That comment means you either have no taste or you never listened to The Sir Douglas Quintet! Doug Sahm was a true genius of American music! The first Americana artist and an influence on every roots musician that has come sincer! Please don't question what you don't know! Listen to his entire catalog and then comment!

Which one was Sir Douglas?

But then 45 years passed, and The Monkees lost.

The Tempts & Supremes do not belong on this list because they neither composed their own music nor played on them either. They were great vocalists & entertainers in their own right but depended on folks like Holland-Dozier-Holland, Smokey Robinson & Norman Whitfield for their songs & sound.

Actually I'd rather listen to The Monkees!

And that has what to do with this discussion! The Beatless didn't produce their own music so should they be off the list as well?

MiBoDoCa says:
And while we're at it Holland-Dozier-Holland, Smokey Robinson & Norman Whitfield are all better songwriters than Lennon or McCartney!

You are fighting a losing battle here....The Beatles are highly regarded as one of the most influential , ground breaking groups of all time...I can't name 10 artists better than the Beatles SINCE they arrived on the scene...

Here we go with the "popularity" argument again! And what ground did they supposedly break again? Wimping down Rock and Roll or "starting" psychedelic music which means they helped make music less appealing!

The Beatles DID produce quite a bit of their later music. George Martin was their producer, but they knew what they wanted most of the time, and did it brilliantly. They had so much talent - other groups back then even admitted they were the tops. Cass Elliott said, "They're untouchable...." What have you got against the Beatles - they're ONLY the greatest group of all time, and the majority of music fans agree with me. As Green Eyed Lady says, "you are fighting a losing battle here". What, did one of them insult your dad or something?........

Chris Carter says:
Besides, The Move sucked - they were 'psychedelic wannabes'. They were just wearing the clothes so they could be more popular and fit in. Even the people at UFO (the underground club in London) thought they were pretenders.
I would say what the Beatles did was technically more 'pop' than 'rock', anyway. And I know at least 2 of the bands you mention as being 'better' than the Beatles were HUGELY influenced by them (The Byrds and The Beach Boys). The Byrds wouldn't have EVEN HAPPENED without The Beatles, so admit you don't know what yer talking about.

how greater would the KINKS have been if they had a producer the likes of george martin?
as it was, the kinks were the equal of the beatles. also would like to give with a big shout out to the move;
they were an excellent group that never toured the US. john lennon, ray davies, and roy wood; musical geniuses all.
