Top 10 Reasons the Beatles Are Better Than One Direction
The Top Ten
The Beatles amazed everyone with their talent. They also had so much variety and contributed to lots of modern music. In truth, I don't mind One Direction and can respect them for expressing themselves through music. However, it is foolhardy to think that they have surpassed the Beatles.
The Beatles were known for their musical talent. One Direction, whole different story. - kaitlynrad11
More like the Beatles had talent
Each Beatles were talented on their own way.
Um... Is that a question? Because one direction can't even play a guitar or carry out a good tune.
They can't sing
George Harrison alone is hotter than all of one direction combined, times the hotness by TEN with a little bit left over
John Lennon, Paul McCartney, and George Harrison were sexier and more talented than any of the One Direction guys. Ringo Starr was maybe not as good looking as the three other Beatles members, but he was more talented than any of the One Direction guys.
You should be famous for talent, not looks. - kaitlynrad11
Well the Beatles were famous for their looks too, the difference is that they were actually talented besides being attractive. - theOpinionatedOne
George Harrison is hotter than ALL of one direction timed by TWENTY with a bit left over!
One Direction could never go up to the level of talent of the Beatles, let alone play instruments. Hey One Direction! Let It Be!
One Direction can actually play instruments, they were not meant to for marketing purpose. But even then, not better than the Fab Four.
To those that say that The Beatles were the first boyband - yes they have played cheesy love songs but they never wanted to specifically appeal to the teenage girls (the target audience for boybands in general), in fact, vast majority of the world liked them. The Beatles are chick magnets, screaming fangirls just happened to cling onto them. They wrote their own songs and played their own instruments. Therefore, they do not qualify as a boyband.
Niall plays the guitar sometimes, but other than that...eh
Like, 1D has lyrics about girls and crappy stuff, The Beatles had much different lyrics. Here comes the sun, Hey Jude, When I'm sixty-four, and Yellow Submarine have some pretty cool lyrics! - kaitlynrad11
I agree. The Beatles are the greatest and have some amazing songs. - LaughySapphySapphire
True that, just listen to In My Life and Hey Jude, these two songs have great lyrics.
The Beatles actually have lyrics that mean something, while one direction is just a bunch of cheesy autotune music. Even though one direction (1D) has music that might mean something, there is a lot more to one of the Beatles songs than all of 1D's songs!
Re Beatles have lyric that mean something, while one D makes up crap like they always do... I mean listen to the Beatles and remember that one direction thinks they are better... lmao.
Twist and Shout isn't written by the beatles
"Yeah, yeah, yeah" - Billyv
That's what makes you beautiful!
Please, not that song - kaitlynrad11
This is what 1D does. They don't make music. They repeat words over and over to produce auditory autotuned garbage.
Arguably the most famous, and basically started what we call rock music! - kaitlynrad11
The Beatles gave the UK a good name, while 1D gave it a bad name - ----------
No matter how good a band would be, they would not outdo The Beatles. One Direction would not even last a second against other greats like Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, Queen, Journey, Bon Jovi, Fleetwood Mac, Aerosmith, etc.; heck, even other manufactured boyvands like NSYNC, the Backstreet Boys and New Kids on the Block would outdo One Direction!
You can't just be better than a legend - kaitlynrad11
Any music act claiming to be better than the Beatles had been cursed
They have been compared to the beatels. We all know which is better. - nintendofan126
They use it to make garbage. Not for making songs. The Beatles did not need it to produce songs.
What was the person thinking when he invented auto-tune?
Literally, the worst singer in the world could sing, and fix it up with autotune, and sound like one direction. The Beatles could acually sing, and didn't fake it with autotune.
Even as an ex-Directioner, that is so true
We became famous...
BEFORE THE INTERNET WAS MADE!
The mop top :pure art in a hairstyle; shame it was wrecked by Dustbin Beaver!
That is wrong
Harry styles looks like he put dynamite in his hair and didn't ever shower. - doodie
One Direction never sounded good. Their "songs" could prove just that.
Georgie and Paul are the most beautiful things I’ve ever seen
and Harry styles... oof
They really did not need the help from anyone outside the band to write their songs
They not only wrote all lyrics, but also the melodies and then actually played the music with instruments. It is also a lot more organic how they formed. They werent just 'put' together.
I think One Direction just became famous because of a T.V show. The Beatles were loved by everyone and they will always be remembered.
Paul-o met George on the school bus in 3rd grade. My two favorite boys in the same bus :3
They would fade. Zayn left. They continued only being four members. Their latest album is entitled "Four" because of this. Next would be "Three", then "Two", then "One" then they'd fade to black. (Metallica joke intended.)
"Helter Skelter" By The Beatles is considered by many the first heavy metal song, along with the first punk rock song. They were the original boy band that so many other groups (including 1D) have tried to recreate.
Including 1D...name at least one band that were not inspired by the Beatles! Not even their biggest rival the Rolling Stone could impact them
Including the legendary Oasis
Shows that they paved the way for other acts
Yes! The Beatles had a mix of Ballad, Rock, Psychedelic, Easy Listening, and a lot of songs in between! 1D music is pretty much Pop and Slow Pop
While 1D just had one show on the X-factor and they got famous. Not because of their music, but because of their looks. Admit it fangirls, you get their album, take the disc out and throw it into the trash bin and just stare into the cover for hours!
So many that a full compilation album could be made for them all.
They had a T.V. show and 5 movies
Not just music or talent-wise, but with who they were as people
It's true they don't! I saw them live, and it was Zayn's last concert with them! All they did was walk around the stage with microphones.
Queen, Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, Nirvana, Michael Jackson, etc. must I continue?
