Top Ten Reasons Why the Beatles Are Better Than Most Pop Artists Today

The Top Ten

1 They Can Make Actual Music

Lets face it haters of pop stars today.
The Beatles would've had many reunions if John hadn't been murdered and George hadn't died of cancer. I have been a fan of The Beatles since I was a child in the 90s, from when we sang "Yellow Submarine" in Primary School.

And they used actual instruments that require actual talent, unlike today's singers that are "talented" because their voice never cracks and they sing other people's lyrics with backing music from, you guessed it, other people. - Songsta41

This list is really accurate and has good reasoning. - cosmo

I have got a feeling most people just like the Beatles as they are popular. - gemcloben

2 The Beatles Took Time Making Songs

Most pop stars don't even WRITE their own songs. - Minecraftcrazy530

Today, pop stars hire writers to make the music for them; they just sing it using autotune.

3 The Beatles Are Better Role Models

I'm not sure if The Beatles could be considered as "good role models"... they did lots of drugs and stuff... - Misfire

All of the Beatles did lots of drugs and had lots of sex though, and John lennon beat his wife - Erucu

Today's singers are no one to emulate. - Songsta41

4 Each of Them Deserve the Honor of "Best Rock Band"

They are not just better than most artists today, they are better than any artist today.

5 Revolution 9 Is More Listenable Than Many of Nicki Minaj's Songs

Lol yeah. That song still creeps me out though... - Misfire

Anaconda makes revolution 9 look like let it be.

Stupid Hoe makes Revolution 9 sound like a normal song.

Crank that makes revolution 9 sound like
John Lennons imagine

6 Some Pop Songs Today Are Just Awful

I agree 100%. Today, singers have to swear and be inappropriate just to get attention. That's exactly what is happening to all my former favorite artists! Now I can hardly listen to a song without being bombarded by swearing. D: A lot of the songs put down woman too. I'm one, and I HATE IT! I just wish that more artists would look up to people like The Beatles, or Elton John or Elvis or someone with actual talent. But there still are some great artists put there, pike Eminem, who swear but they don't mean it in a way that it puts down people.

I don't usually like to criticize, but I've been waiting a long time to say all this! It just gets on my last nerve sometimes. Also, woman don't have to be thin to be beautiful, or vise versa. It doesn't matter what you look like, either. It matters what's on the inside.<♡> :3
I may get hate for this, I may not. But it is just my opinion!

7 The Beatles Didn't Need Auto-Tune

Autotune just makes you sound like a bit of a robot. I've heard great singers live, like the guy in Imagine Dragons, who use autotune in their recordings but can actually sing live. The Beatles never had to use it because it wasn't invented yet.

Back in my days it was just the singer and the Mic we didn't need some stupid Computer to make a song - some old guy - MrQuaz680

8 Today's Pop Artists Are Either Hated, or Forgettable

Because you want to hate the pop stars now to look cool and edgy.

Like Justin Bieber!
A Beaver in a Dustbin!

9 The Beatles Didn't Treat Their Fans Like Garbage

Unlike Justin Bieber...we all know what he did to his "fans".

OR ESPECIALLY ARIANA GRANDE! SHE IS NICKELODEON'S/A POOR MAN'S VERSION OF SELENA GOMEZ!

10 The Beatles Were More Creative

Yeah they didn't sing all about sex and love.
Even if they did sing about love it sounded nice and meaningful not like Justin Bieber songs

The Contenders

11 The Beatles Are Timeless
12 The Beatles Influenced Many Bands to Come

The Velvet Underground too

Writing The Rolling Stone's first hit means shows that they paved the way

Same with Velvet Underground
