Top Ten Reasons Why Queen is Better Than the Beatles

Du

The Top Ten

1 Bohemian Rhapsody is Regarded by Many as the Greatest Song Ever

"Many" who are Queen fans, but not by "Most".

2 Freddie Mercury Has a Better Voice Than Paul McCartney

McCartney's voice was fuller, and much more versatile, and his range was tremendous. Freddie had good range, but was thin, and pretty much a one-trick pony.

Vocals, Freddie > Paul
Instrumental talent, Paul > Freddie. He can play guitar, bass, vocal, drum, keyboard.

But I like both these bands. - zxm

3 Bohemian Rhapsody is Better Than Hey Jude

My PERSONAL opinion, Let It be is better than Bohemian Rhapsody. Of course there are other good songs of Queen. But Bohemian Rhapsody's not on top 5. - zxm

But not better than In My Life, While My Guitar Gently Weeps, A Day in the Life, or Yesterday.

4 The Beatles are Overrated

Saying a band is overrated is a awful reason, I'm not the biggest Beatles fan either but come on better reasoning then this would be appreciated. - BoredJeff02

5 The Beatles' Best Guitar Solo is Played by Eric Clapton

This is true, not many can play like "God" [aka Clapton]; only a fool would think otherwise. Brian May could only wish to be able to play like George Harrison, much less Eric Clapton. You weren't actually thinking of comparing John Deacon with Paul McCartney on bass were you?

"Brian May could only wish...? " Are you serious? George, God rest him, was the most rudimentary of lead guitarists. There is NO comparison here. And Clapton has ALWAYS been overrated.

6 They Have More Iconic Songs

Not even close. Would bet the rent
there are far more folks alive today familiar with far more Beatles songs and covers than are with Queen.

7 Queen Had Cassette Tapes and CDs, While the Beatles Had Records

Incorrect.

8 The Beatles' Later Songs are Just Weed-Fueled Drivel. Queen Remained Consistently Great.

The reality is that all of Queen's music has proven to be nothing but football stadium crowd hype or drunken singalongs, while the Beatles addressed a wide variety of societal, political, and personal issues, in a way that had not been done before or since.
The Beatles were so great, that some of George's songs that were rejected by Paul and John were still better than anything Queen ever did. George's "Northern Songs" catalogue alone is far superior to Queen's catalogue.

9 Freddie was a better pianist than Paul, Brian was better guitarist than George
10 Queen was a better live band than Beatles and live aid is regarded as the best live performance of all time
