Beatles are amazing. In my opinion Elvis is a bit over-rated. Little Richard was the first true rock and roller, you are better off listening to him darlings :)

Elvis is fuckin' overated.
Couldn't write songs and could hardly play an instrument. His early years hit songs are about the only thing worth listening, but everything else is just boring covers of every single song from every single genre.

Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Fats Domino, Buddy Holly, Bill Haley, and all the true pioneers of rock deserve far more credit then Elvis does.

IMO, The Beatles should hold the title of KINGS of Rock n Roll.

Call Elvis what you will. He is certainly the most successful cover artist of all time I'd say, very derivative in his musical style. But *what* a singer... you really are cheating yourself out of a good listen if you give up on Elvis simply because he couldn't write songs as well as you guys.

But here's something I can definitely agree on - LITTLE RICHARD! My God, what a voice, what a piano player. The man was dynamite, and for so many years too.

And as for the Beatles... you can instantly filter out intelligent people by asking them if the Beatles are overrated. Anyone who says yes just screams 'Dope'. They aren't taking into account the whole catalogue, there are at least 5 songs in there that *cannot* be dismissed, for technical reasons or for personal preference.

That's the craziest thing. They broke new ground that still in some ways isn't equalled. I consider "A Day In The Life" to be the one song I'd choose from the 60's to listen to.

And I mean, it wasn't just "The Beatles" themselves, George Martin - what an innovator. That bunch just.... leaves me gobsmacked. I'm not saying Love Me Do is an equal of the sum of human knowledge, but there are some songs in the Beatles catalogue that *cannot* be discounted by any thinking individual who knows a damn about music!

Like She's a Woman or What Goes On - perhaps the 2 best songs ever!

Let me just say this...

If Elvis was black, there's no way he would have given the media the title of "King of Rock N' Roll".
Elvis basically stole what black artists have been working for decades, by then having RCA sell it under a white package.
