Why do people flip shit if you even dare to question the Beatles?
Because saying that The Beatles are overrated is wrong. Plain and simple. If you need this to be explained to you, I have no interest in hearing your opinions as they are worthless.
She's so different. It must be great having such unique friend with such good taste. Most people only listen to that Justin Bieber crap.
Some people will believe anything their parents tell them and are afraid of change. In the case of music, this makes them approach it with starry-eyed wonder and open ears that they won't approach music with ever again unless if they become collectors, especially if their instilled tastes are challenged.
There's a few bands that have reached a literal untouchable status in pop culture, and The Beatles are the head of it. When you pass down that they're the best band in the world like 3 generations of music illiterate plebs, they basically reach divine status and are treated more as a religion than a band, even though most people who are so vehement about it hardly listen to them.
I really like the Beatles and whenever I listen to them it makes me feel good
You don't like the Beatles as much anon and that's okay
There are people out there who don't like teh Beatles at all and that's okay too
With the volume turned low this sounds like windy rain outside while someone takes a shower indoors, and also a washer and dryer are running somewhere downstairs. It's very calming and beautiful. God, The Beatles were fucking geniuses.
People act that way when you question any band within the dadrock canon. I remember in one of my classes the subject somehow drifted to Queen, and when I said they really weren't a great band outside of their singles the whole class erupted in outrage.
They're a kids band, plain and simple. They play dress up, sing cute little songs and have a Saturday morning cartoon.
40 years from now we'll probably hold The Wiggles and Yo Gabba Gabba! in the same esteem.
Dadrockers are a curious crowd. Apparently my opinion on music (which I barely ever talk about outside of my like-tasted friends anyway) is null and void and to be constantly fucking made fun of because I enjoy Boards of Canada.
They'll do things like hit spoons on glasses and say "this is the kind of thing you listen to anon haha" or open audacity, hit "generate tone" and say "anon's album of the year lmao".
>women are a meme
funniest thing I've seen in weeks
>women are a meme
what have my sides done to deserve this punishment?
For real, the more I let this statement sink in the truer I understand it to be. Women are followers, not leaders. They regurgitate societal programming all their lives. They worship pop culture. They're essentially a walking talking meme, the lot of them. Women are a meme.
100% they are. Record sales are the perfect popularity guage, and The Beatles beat any other artist by a country mile, and lasting impact on pop music/culture is only rivalled by a guy like MJ.
WOMEN ARE A MEME
WOMEN ARE A MEME
WOMEN ARE A MEME
WOMEN ARE A MEME
>They think is shit
There you go.
Most people don't willingly buy music they THINK is shit.
Most people also don't willingly buy food they THINK is shit.
But billions of people buy McDonald's.
I guess McDonald's is the greatest food of all time, by the objective metric of SALES, with the added lasting impact of cultural force.
Buying food takes pricing into account though. People buy McD's because it tastes good and is dirt cheap. That variable does not exist for music purchasing, something that nobody does anymore anyway.
>made fun of because I enjoy Boards of Canada.
What the fuck is wrong with Boards of Canada? They're an excellent band. Seriously your friends sound like a bunch of childish cunts. Find some better friends.
I once had a friend make fun of me in the car for listening to Radiohead's Kid A of all things. Needless to say I no longer talk to him. He's completely illiterate when it comes to music, 50% of his miniscule library is composed of video game soundtracks and 8 bit electronic/dubstep.
i don't usually question anyones opinion on the Beatles unless they say that they suck
then i have some questions
you have to go to japan if you want to meet girls that like the beach boys or really any interesting music in general :(
this is why asian women are superior.
>young, thin appearance
>nice natural smell
>shares white man creativity and innovation
>embraces her femininity
the only downside is they have a higher rate of mental illness and spanish women are better with children
No, it means that in 50 years generic hipsters will look at Bieber and praise him for his innovations in music and music culture, and will look down upon whoever disagrees with them.
>my niece's boyfriend claims to love the Beatles
>doesn't have a favorite album
>doesn't have a favorite song
>doesn't have a favorite Beatle
>has claimed he prefers later stuff to earlier stuff
How do you talk to a person like this?
>in 50 years generic hipsters will look at Bieber and praise him for his innovations in music and music culture
I find it highly unlikely that anyone will even remember Bieber in 50 years.
>Talking about the Death Grips with anon
>Tell him I find them quite good just a little overrated
>He goes into a fit about how I 'don't get it' and how I probably only know one or two songs
>Tell him that I have listened to the entire discography and how they're not as innovative as most people claim, Dalek and Techno did that kind of hip hop years ago
>He goes "lol 2deep4u pleb *top kek* *tips fedora*"
it depends on the pleb. if they're a 90's kid obviously nirvana, if they're a dadrocker led zep, if they're someone with little musical taste at all and only parrot that the beatles are good because they're told to then the beatles.
if you don't know the person i'd say probably the beatles, then nirvana, then led zep.
>women are a meme
This is it, it's finally happened
We've reached the pinnacle of post-memery
It isn't getting any better than this, guys
It's not a criticism of the music but of the listeners (or more accurately the people who don't actually listen but simply claim it to be the best because that's what they've been spoonfed)
Something being overrated isn't critical of the music itself, but of the people who listen to it. It's like hearing that an album is incredible, but when you listen to it, you think "It's good, but not exactly the greatest thing I've ever heard."
It's not. It's more directed towards fans of something in an attempt to seem more deep with kewl and obscure tastes, someone who doesn't conform with the rest of the herd.
Exhibit A: >>50767893
That's usually what I've taken it is, but almost no one here or anyone else seems to apply it like that. It usually boils down to "I don't like it as much as everyone else, therefore it's overrated." from everything from the Beatles to something as obscure as, let's say, Jodorowsky.
Well that goes without saying. I like to stay positive and just imagine the times when terms like that aren't used correctly, it's on purpose and done to get a rise out of people.
And that's a failing of Boards of Canada how exactly?
Also if someone is dismissing a band out of hand without even trying to listen to it that's more of a matter of ignorance and closed mindedness rather than "not taking music seriously". Those same people at least take music "seriously" enough to defend dadrock to the death.
I agree with you, but I feel like you're giving these people too much credit. The only reason "dadrockers" defend the music they listen to is because that's all they know. That's what they're told is good, and any criticism of the music they enjoy is blasphemy. Not to mention most of these people only casually listen to music. They aren't serious about it the way you or, I hope, all of /mu/ is.
tl;dr Dadrock fans only use music as an accessory. Music isn't a hobby of theirs.
I bought The Beatles Rock Band in 2009 back when I still played those games and I was blown away by most of the songs on that damn game and I bought every single song available as DLC
I fucking love them
It's not like I go around telling people how amazing they are, but whenever I mention to someone I like them I sometimes get "hurr durr they've ovverrated pleb shit you probably think they were the greatest band ever that changed music forever"
Why can't they just say "That's nice but I don't like them"
I'm not giving them much credit, trust me. I'm just saying they tend to take music seriously enough to have only a basal, tribalistic and superficial understanding of it; ridiculing those who enjoy different and more varied music than they do whilst proclaiming that the music they've been handed down is the greatest music in the world beyond comparison or criticism. I imagine if someone didn't take music seriously they would be more flippant and detached about their own tastes rather than being so regimented about it.
I think they're pretty great, you should check it out. My favorite albums are Rubber Soul, Revolver and Srg. Pepper, I would check them out if I were you. It aged really well, or at least I think so. Don't bother listening to anything before Rubber Soul though, unless you like pop a lot. And even if you do, there are plenty of better pop bands around.
O.P. has a point. He's saying he likes The Beatles, but prefers other music. I think they, just like Nirvana, have been completely blown out of proportion.
Influential? Definitely. They opened up new ground for their successors in music to explore new sounds.
Are they becoming dated? I didn't use to think so, but now that we're in the 21st Century I feel they're becoming so. Their music still holds up well and has for at least 5 decades. Things have just changed so much in music and I do feel that simply because of time The Beatles are becoming less relevant in society. Especially considering that the former members are in the twilight of their lives.
I love The Beatles myself, but I feel as I've got older and into more artists that their relevance in society, lasting, again, almost 5 decades now, is finally on the wane.
I didn't need to. I knew he listened to imagine dragons and videogame osts
I was just taken aback, from the fact that he'd make a remark like that. its like when a young child jokingly says they'll beat you up, it's cute
It makes sense the more you think about it.
Just memorize the first paragraph of the scaruffi article and recite anytime someone brings them up. People will eventually get so pissed off they'll stop ever mentioning the beatles in front of you
>women are a meme
>99.9% of them are dumb as shit and stop being interesting as they get old
>easily exploitable and have a simple appeal to them
>become used goods very fast
>are a walking representation of pop culture
This is scary. I can't believe no one has ever said the words "women are a meme" in all the years 4chan has been a thing.
im new here can someone explaoin this?
