    Do you prefer Rembrandt or Van Gough? Do you prefer Hemingway or Steinbeck? In either case both are great, it's fucking art not a sport.

    Beatles were more influential, but I would listen to the Stones over them anyday.

    Also, Pet Sounds shits on Sgt. Peppers.

    It's only a matter of time until we get the inevitable "Beatles are overrated comment." :rolleyes:

    Oh, and I like the Stones but love the Beatles.

    Beatles were a pop band, brilliant as they are with a massive, massive amount of high quality music but the difference is the Stones are rock n roll and the Beatles were a pop band.

    A rock band can bring it live but a pop band is better off on the radio. Beatles live would be boring, nothing compared to the Stones live.

    Beatles all day. Most influential band ever - when a Beatles album came out, it sounded like no other record had and everybody tried to copy it afterwards. the Stones have Jagger and Richards who are legend and have kept the band going for almost 50 years now but the Beatles were the most important band ever. Plus all 4 Beatles had top 10 solo records and successful careers post-Beatles - no other band can claim that

    I could listen to both for the rest of my life and be pretty happy, but I like the Beatles just a little bit more.

    I would take being a part of Exile on Main Street over a top ten solo record any day.

    Actually, this does:

    I love both bands. Almost can't vote. But if the cards were down and I'd have to be forced to pick, Beatles it is.

    Pepper is a great record, but Revolver was really their last statement as four guys working together to put a piece of art into the world. In a matter of months after this they stopped touring, grew up a bit with their image (the mustaches), took a ton of acid (even Paul by 67), and let Paul run the show far more than ever (hence Pepper). George is barely there on Pepper and when he does arrive with Within You Without You, it's only okay.

    Revolver is their greatest statement and the album I always suggest to people if they are new to the band.

    Stones have a lot of filler. Beatles? Not so
    much.

    Hard to top side 2 of Abbey Road.

    It's apples and oranges.

    Love the Stones but what have they really done of any significance since "Some Girls"? Like most bands they lost their way in the 80's.
