Best Songs Between The Beach Boys, The Beatles and The Rolling Stones

The best songs between the three greatest rock bands of the 1960s.

The Top Ten

1 (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction - The Rolling Stones

Way better than anything The Beatles or Beach Boys could ever do. Their soul, spirit and rebellious attitude makes them better than the bands below.

Totally agree with the list especially having satisfaction number 1. It's my favorite song I all time

Probably one of the best songs of all time - Ajkloth


2 Hey Jude - The Beatles

Best selling song of the 1960's - westofohio

Boring Hippie nonsense.

3 A Day In the Life - The Beatles

Best song of all time

4 Wouldn't It Be Nice - The Beach Boys

This should TOTALLY be higher on the list because between the great lyrics, vocals, and very unique instrumental it makes a great song!
