>>51496984 God fucking dammit, I went about a month without seeing this meme and assumed it was finally fucking over, but I guess not. You just HAD to post it once again, didn't you? You felt SO fucking inclined to bring this cancerous piece of shit back to the face of this board, like it was your God given duty or some shit. This meme isn't even funny, m8, like seriously. It's fucking annoying, just like you. Every time I see this shit, I want to strangle the guy responsible for posting it, and that guy just happens to be you. So congratulations, you are officially a fag. I swear to God if I ever see this meme again I'm gonna bang my head against a wall. It's the most assinine thing on the planet, it's not entertaining, it's not funny, it doesn't even make any fucking sense. It's just a waste of space. This post could've gone to something that could actually have contributed to the planet, or even just this board, but no. Instead, it has to go to this fucking meme.
Please, just go outside or something. Find something better to do with your life than posting shitty memes that aren't even funny on a fucking image board for Chinese cartoons. Your mum's getting tired of you living in her basement.
>>51496905 It's hard to quantify influence. It really depends on what specific music you're looking at that's the recipient of the influence. If we're talking in absolutes for no reason, I'd wager that the Velvet Underground had a more important influence on pop music as a whole, at least looking at genres like: post-rock, alt-rock, punk, post-punk, indie, krautrock (and electronic music as a result), experimental rock, noise rock, dream pop
The Beatles cultural influence is undeniable. I think their musical importance is overstated, but I'll save that for if anyone actually wants to discuss that
One of if not the first band to ever use sampling in their music Pitch and time manipulation Multitrack Recording (arguably shared with the beach boys) On top of this they were the first band to ever make a music video and the first band to make a concept album
>>51497280 >Not including Matin's studio trickery Thanks for confirming, they were a fucking boy band, glorified barbershop quartet and nothing more. Thanks Martin, you were the best band in the history of pop. As for the Fab Four they can suck a raw unedited dick.
>techniques attributed to the beatles because they were in the beatles songs and the beatles worked with martin to create them (martin didnt do the whole fucking thing himself you know) >b-but it's all martins trickery!
>>51497280 >One of if not the first band to ever use sampling in their music Musicians have been doing this since before the 60s (musique concrete). If you want to say they were to first to use samples in the pop song format, then that would be June 1st, 1966 if wikipedia is to be believed.
James Tenney, 1961
>Pitch and time manipulation Chuck Berry
>Multitrack Recording >arguable shared with the beach boys If they arguably shared it with the Beach Boys, I'm not counting it as the Beatles definitively pioneering it.
>On top of this they were the first band to ever make a music video and the first band to make a concept album This depends on definitions, but Elvis for music video As for concept album, Frank Sinatra, Mothers of Invention, and the Beach Boys (arguably) did it first.
I don't know about much, but the Beatles wrote some fucking untouchable songs: >Across the Universe >Yesterday >Fool on the Hill >A Day In The Life >With A Little Help >In My Life
and, IMO, the greatest song ever written >The Long and Winding Road
I can't even imagine being able to come up with that progression and melody. I know Spector handled the arrangement, but still, they wrote a multitude of songs that could single-handedly propel any band to stardom as a "one hit wonder". They just knew how to write a fucking great pop song.
>>51496905 I believe that they're overrated in the sense that many people legitimately believe it's blasphemous to speak ill of them, and the fact that their heavily romanticized lore often overshadows their actual music, resulting in people speaking about them as if they were untouchable deities. That said, I have no problem with people saying that they're the greatest and/or most influential band of all time, because that claim has a lot of merit.
>>51497494 >They just knew how to write a fucking great pop song Unfortunately that's all they knew how to do. A good band that wrote some of the best melodies of the 60s. Backed by Martin's genius they were unstoppable. But I hesitate to call the Beatles a great band when compared to their contemporaries.
