Although the Monkees were modeled on the Beatles from their movie "A hard days night", there the similarities end.
As others have pointed out, the Beatles were primarily a rock 'n' roll band who moved into pop music through sheer vent of their popularity.
They never mimed as such to a backing track, they just decided that there was no use trying to sing over the din being made, so they just mouthed the songs. That is very different to miming.
If you don't like the Beatles, that's fine, but what you are doing is misrepresenting them and then attacking the misrepresentation.
