As all of us Queen fans are concern, Queen to us is the greatest band ever. But f course we know that In reality The Beatles are the greatest band in history. So my question is, not taking Queen as our favorite band in the world but approaching it in a serious form, is Queen the second greatest band of all time?

I dont know if this has been posted before, and if it has I apologise.

Sa.

I've never understood the appeal of The Beatles. I think George Harrison's solo stuff alone runs circles around their material. The playing and singing on most Beatles stuff is average at best and the lyrics are often laughable. I remember reading on someone's site a tag line "The Beatles were first, but Queen were the Best".

Yeah, there are some songs of the Beatles that aren't that great. I know I never listen to several songs on the White Album. And their albums inbetween Please, Please Me and A Hard Day's Night are simliar, and not that all that inspiring. The second half of Abbey Road (my favorite album) can be seen as stupid/weird/pointless (I must add that the first half without a doubt rocks! "I Want You", you can't play that one loud enough). And the movie Magical Mystery Tour is very, very odd. But we all make mistakes. Has ANY artist ANYWHERE ever done EVERYTHING so that EVERYONE thinks it's genius? No. There's no way that would happpen. Every artist has some discrepency against them that they make in the first place.

Personally, I am a Queen fan who converted from being a Beatle fan. Well, actually, it was four years off the Beatles (with general stuff, I'd listen to most anything that wasn't country or modern), before I got into Queen. So, the Beatles are a good band. Queen is great. But they are so for different reasons. Beatles had great songs, were pioneers and WERE revolutionary. Queen had great songs, were fantasic performers, and also were finding new things to do in music.

You are ignoring so much if you say "the Beatles were absoultely not revolutionary". That's a load of bullocks. You're ignoring Sgt. Pepper, the first album of its kind. The best selling album I might add til Saturday Night Fever's soundtrack came along (enter the seedlings of crappy pop influence). Nor can you ignore the White Album.

They also influenced so many musical artists to come after them. If I remember correctly, there's this one band ... also four guys ... who were influenced by the Beatles. Who were they, I just can't remember? :P

How can something you all admire so much grow from something as "horrible" as you make it seem to be?

They had a good message/vibe about them too. "All you need is love".

Then again, we're all entitled to an opinion, and some will refuse to listen/read/comprehend what others say so they will still see the world/their world the way they like. You can disagree with another's opinion, so long as you consider it as well. Otherwise, you're just being an ignorant ass.

I'm sure there are some people out there who will argue with anyone til their last breathing day that either Frank Sinatra, The Doors, Barry Manilow, Mozart,Led Zepplen, Beethoven, N*SYNC, Talking Heads, Def Leppard (that one's for you, Lep ;)), Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass, Perry Como, Bing Crosby, William Shatner, Iron Butterfly, Aretha Franklin, Green Day, Billy Holiday, The Kinks, Buddy Holly, Elvis or WHOEVER will be the ulimate artist/band/singer of ALL TIME.

So really it's a mute point. This post will end up being everyone's opinion on what is good, and what is not. And no one will merge. Or at least they won't post if they have. That'd be embarrassing. :)

I dont like The Beatles, as many Queen fans in here dont, but no matter what they are the best band in history. Selling over 1 billion records is pretty hard to do, and I guess thats what many people base the beatles on when it comes to ranking them the best band ever.

Yeah, The Beatles certainly didn't revolutionize anything - only the way that most rock bands approached recording in the studio - and they certainly didn't influence virtually every rock band that ever existed.

Ignorance certainly is bliss, eh?

Exactly.
The Beatles didn't invent rock music; it was stolen from black people by white people.
In the 20th century, the only musical genre invented by whites is electro music (Kraftwerk).

Queen is a GREAT BAND and you know the beatles haven't only beat queen is always number 10 and that is bull and we know that and they know that
queen and the beatles should really share that title
of number 1 and the crap about metallica and led zepplin being better than queen just look at the charts look at the charts and tell who is Number 1 not rolling stones, not floyd, not billy joel, not micheal jackson

QUEEN just learn to ignore those top 10 lists it is all bullshit and magazine editor's favorites
That is how it works Sorry man i always have a good laugh about the top 10 lists so look at the charts and then what ever list you're looking at and laugh your ass off

Dude, I hear what youre saying and I understand. Im not bashing Queen or anything liek that> Queen is my favorite band and always will be. And I definetly know what youre talking about when it comes to Top something lists. Especially here in the US, Queen are almost never in any Top somthing List, and if they are they are always all the way at the bottom like in the 20s, 30s, or 40s. i agree with you. So I dont know why you think that i think The Beatles are better than Queen, cause Im certain The Beatles know, well Paul and Ringo, that Queen are better than the Beatles, its just that Paul will never admit it since he's a stuck up billionare.

http://www.virginradio.co.uk/music/top100artists/index.html

i think the list is almost correct. because there are only brit-artist, i would replace oasis, jam, clash and madness with u2, guns n' roses, the eagles and metallica. that's it...


## signatures are stupid ##
