I'm a huge Stones fan - in fact, Gimme Shelter is one of my ring tones. However, this contest clearly goes to the Beatles. I rate them higher than almost anyone else I can think of.

So my vote:


John Lennon ftw.

I would have to say The Beatles, hands down!

Mick's mouth has always scared me!

The Stones are one of the only classic rock bands that I own a CD of. Gimme Shelter is awesome! Ruby Tuesday is another of my favs! Also, I think I may be the only person in the world that doesn't care for the Beatles.

I vote Stones!

Sometimes I'm a bit slow. (Can't believe I never saw that button)

I forgot the fav. part also. If I can include solo Lennon then my favorite is Instant Karma.

If not, then it's Glass Onion, or Strawberry Fields. I can't decide.

Is it any secret which way I am leaning?

Both are two of the greatest musical acts we have ever seen.

Some personal favorites from the Stones...

  • Paint it Black
  • Let's Spend the Night Together
  • Gimme Shelter
  • Start Me Up

    The reason the Beatles are better, in my opinion, is because they were more than a band. The Stones are an amazing musical act. The Beatles were an amazing musical act, and so much more.

    Some of my favorite Beatles songs...

  • Hey Jude
  • Yesterday
  • Revolution
  • Day Tripper
  • Lady Madonna
  • Eleanor Rigby

    Actually... there are very few Beatles songs that I don't absolutely love.

    Beatles, hands down.

    Honestly though... McCartney & Lennon vs. Jagger & Richards? That's laughable to even consider. George Harrison & Ringo Starr vs. Charlie Watts & Ronnie Wood? C'mon! No competition.

    Pete Best or Stu Sutcliff & Brian Jones... that could be a marginal debate.

    Hmm. This may be the most difficult question I've pondered since Leonard Cohen versus Bob Dylan.

    I also consider this one of the more unfortunate rulings I've had to lay down.

    My vote goes to The Beatles. Don't get me wrong -- I love the Stones. "Jumpin' Jack Flash," "Gimme Shelter," "Sympathy for the Devil," and "Paint It Black" are incredible tunes.

    So why did I do it? Was it because "While My Guitar Gently Weeps," "Strawberry Fields Forever," "Norwegian Wood," and "Here Comes the Sun" are more incredible songs? As far as I'm concerned, "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" is the best song by either band. And Clapton played lead on the album version. But no, I couldn't let it all hinge on that. In the end, it had to be because I think the historical impact of The Beatles, in addition to their excellent music, outweighs that of the Stones. I'm not quite sure where we'd have wound up without The Beatles.

    Here's something interesting to ponder: Without Rubber Soul, could The Beach Boys' Pet Sounds have existed? And without Pet Sounds, would Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band have existed? Strange how The Beatles started a cycle of inspiring and challenging artists who in turn inspired and challenged them. It is well documented that Brian Wilson was moved to create Pet Sounds after listening to Rubber Soul. It is as equally well documented that The Beatles were moved to create Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band. In fact, the barking dogs on Pepper are a nod back to the ones on Pet. I mean, we're talking the potential loss or late creation of the concept album here. That is huge. And without Andrew Loog Oldham befriending the Stones and pushing them away from covers and more to original music like The Beatles had done, would we even have The Rolling Stones as we know them?

    I've gotta stick with the way things played out.

    Talented. Musical genius. Great range of music.

    As much as I love the Stones, it has to go to the Beatles.

    Collectively and separately, they are/were some of the most talented musicians ever.As for a favorite, would have to be "Across the Universe" is by far my favorite Beatles song.

    I can still remember watching those little 45's with the Apple goin' round and round on my Dad's record player. Listening to Hey Jude(my Dads fav.) on 11!

    The Rolling Stones provided a lot of wonderful fun music. I can't fault them in any way.

    However, The Beatles were more than that. They were creators and trailblazers and they influenced music as no one else did in that period, including Elvis.
