  • Beatles or The Stones ??? If you HAD to choose one.

    I realize the some are fans of both, some are fans of neither....and some prefer one to the other.....

    But if you were stuck in an elevator for 36 hours, and blasting through the 2 speakers above your head was either the complete Stones catalog, or Beatles catalog.....and silence wasn't an option.....which would you choose?

    What's the best way to eat a frog? Put one leg over each ear.<br><br>

      Beatles.  They've just had an enormous musical influence on my life.  When I was a kid, driving around in the family truckster with my dad, it was always Beatles.

    I'm not big on either, but I'd probably rather listen to the Stones. There's a few songs by them I really like, and the rest I can tolerate. The Beatles, on the other hand, have a few songs I can't stand.

      Beatles. Much more variety. Stones had some good tunes but more of the same for the most part.

    Beatles, every time

    First band to write songs about life as a whole Paperback Writer, She's leaving home, Penny lane, Eleanor Rigby, the subjects go on and on and each song different.

    Funny how minimalism goes on and on

        That's how it is for me as well.

      Stones. The Beatles may have done a lot more in terms of variety but they got self indulgent after a while.

        Beatles, easily.

        I don't even know a self-described Stones fan who can listen to most of their albums start to finish ...

          Probably the Stones. I like the Beatles songs, but not when they're playing them (I prefer covers...), the Stones I can at least deal with them playing their own music :lol:

        Beatles all day long.  Not many bands would lose the <insert band name here> vs The Stones poll.

          Disagree...while the Beatles are force to be reckon with.....

          There are alot of musicians, and non-musician music fans that would choose the Stones catalog over a vast majority of others. The Beatles have outsold every band by a long shot.... Queen, Floyd, Zep & AC/DC are the only bands on par with the Stones in terms of sales.....needless to say, Mick & Keef have some fans out there.

        If I HAD to choose one it'd be the Beatles, no contest.  If I had to choose one album though, it'd be a tough choice and a few Stones' albums would be in there with a fighting chance - Exile on Main St,  Beggars Banquet, Sticky Fingers come to mind

          I'm surprised no one's called me out for my post about the Stones. Usually, not at any particular place, someone tries to school me on something.

        Rolling Stones. Their career outlasted the Beatles by quite a few decades!. But in the same sense the Beatles sold billions of records from a 10 year span together

          Kinda my problem with the Stones...They've gone on way too long.  If they had thrown in the towel after Some Girls (or earlier) they'd have been my pick here.

        Though the Beatles never made such a nerve shaking song like Gimmie Shelter but that's just my .02

          Black backup singers are what make that song..... Mick sounds like someone with a mouthful of shit talking in a fake southern draw. Without a lyric sheet in front of me, I wouldn't have the slightest clue what the hell he is attempting to say in that one.

        That's like comparing Aerosmith and Pink Floyd... Beatles for the win.
