This list is the opposite of Alkadikce's list Bands That Have Only One Popular Member.
When the band is very popular, people tend to know the names of more band members. Another factor is the lineup changes - members of bands with less changes have a bigger chance to be better known.

The Beatles were an English rock band formed in Liverpool in 1960. The members consisted of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison and Ringo Starr. They were soon known as the foremost and most influential act of rock era. Rooted in skiffle, beat, and 1950s rock and roll, the Beatles later experimented ...read more.
Yes I think if a random person could name a bands full line up the most likely band would definitely be the Beatles. An interesting question I think though is how well known the members are proportionally for example other bands may have members that are almost on the exact same level of fame but that level being lower than any Beatles member.
John, Paul, George, Ringo. - Misfire
I am glad you got an inspiration from my list, thanks - Alkadikce

Lucy Diakovska became well known after the group's disbanding not for music but for appearances as a T.V. personality mostly in Austrian shows, and Nadja Benaissa made negative headlines for having slept with several men despite knowingly having been infected with HIV. Sandy Mölling attempted a solo career simply as Sandy, and even despite her albums were a commercial failure, she may be the one member Americans are most likely will have heard of, as her song "One in a Million" was covered by Miley Cyrus for the "Hannah Montana" soundtrack. I'd really be interested how the creators of the show found this song by a German singer that wasn't a commercial success, and not even a single from the album. - Martin_Canine
