Top 10 Reasons Why Jefferson Airplane is Better Than the BeatlesDon't get me wrong I like The Beatles as well, but since I've become such a big fan of Psychedelic music, I can no longer say that the Beatles are one of my favorite Psychedelic bands. They would not even be in my top 10 Psychedelic bands right now. However, I would definitely call Jefferson Airplane one of my favorite Psychedelic bands. I'm comparing them since they both made Psychedelic music during the latter half of the 60s. Let's begin.
The Top Ten
The Beatles didn't choose to concentrate on "psychedelic music". Having a different focus doesn't make Airplane "better" overall, it just makes the 2 groups different. - Billyv
According to...? - Billyv
Perhaps, but The Beatles experiments were more successful, diverse and groundbreaking. - Billyv
That's because at least Jefferson airplane has more verity in their music when it comes to lyrical content, and at least Jefferson Airplane does not have several albums which have exclusively love songs.
That's a minority opinion. It's certainly debateable and subjective, but Lennon, McCartney and perhaps even Harrison are regarded as better songwriters by most professionals and music fans. - Billyv
Nor did The Beatles. They had no resemblance to a "boy band" when they first formed and played clubs in Germany. - Billyv
Being "more psychedelic" and a "better psychedelic band" does not make one band "better" than another band in terms of overall talent and music - which the title of the list implies. - Billyv
While The Beatles are often credited as the inventor of Psychedelic rock, which is not true in my humble opinion, because The Yardbirds, The Byrds, Frank Zappa, and Kim Fowley did Psych Rock before the Beatles even released Revolver.
