Biggest Problems with the BeatlesThe Beatles have always just seemed like an average to mediocre pop rock band to me, I’ve never understood the constant praise for them. There’s much better bands out there if you just look hard enough (i.e King Crimson, Jethro Tull, etc.).
The Top Ten
The Beatles are very overrated - MegaSoulhero
"I Wanna Hold Your Hand", "Hey Jude" "Yellow Submarine" "Come Together" And more are examples of generic pieces of music. They're not as great as visitors on this site overexagerrate them to be. - SomePersonYouHate
A lot of their songs are, like I’ve said, cheesey love ballads, sexual songs, or just generic pop rock songs. Their discography is completely chock full of repetitive rock anthems and unintelligible nonsense.
Absolutely correct, their lyrics were totally generic, except for the songs that are about stopping war, civil rights, LGBT acceptance, loneliness and alienation, drugs [both pro and con], depression, bittersweet reminiscing, single motherhood, death, along with all of those scathing political statements and biting social commentary.
Their first four to five albums were almost nothing but filler, the later albums had less filler but still had a lot of filler. The songs all seemed to be sober before they started, and it had very little substance to it.
John Lennon was basically a black hole of General contribution to the group, and was basically the source of all of their problems and also the cause of their inevitable falling apart. They pretty much all hated each other, John Lennon especially.
Vocally, he’s nothing special. He was an average to terrible lyricist, “Imagine” is a preachy, pretentious piece of garbage and “I Am The Walrus” is a load of nonsensical BS.
I mean, he’s by no means bad, but there’s people who play guitar way better.
Their early albums are absolutely littered with these.
Examples: “I Am The Walrus”, “Mean Mr. Mustard”, “Why Don’t We Do It In The Road? ”, etc.
Usually, the music is just a generic love or sexual song, or about some other lame, tired subject.
