Oh, my…

…you must see the butthurt here!

Yeah, the Beatles were overrated. Hipster hate? Hardly. I love a lot of popular music from the ’60s, from Motown to the Rolling Stones. I’d be perfectly willing to point to that decade as the golden age of American popular music for Motown all by itself. But I never understood the allure of the Beatles, let alone the frenzy some people get whipped into when it’s suggested they might not have been all they were cracked up to be. I’d be perfectly willing to give them their due as innovators when it came to things like recording techniques and whatnot — but the way some people talk you’d think they practically invented music itself. And it a way that’s rather insulting to pretty much everyone who came after them. So yeah, I can totally see where the hate comes from.
