True, they wouldn't exist but it doesn't mean that they were the most influential.

The Beatles influenced not only artists in their generation, but generations afterward unlike any artist (modern music) since.

And.... we still see and hear their influence TODAY.

influence is like a pyramid scheme.

everyone the Beatles influenced further enhances the influence of those who influenced the Beatles.

No, they really don't.

The Beach Boys...or at least Brian Wilson... are personal favorites. But they readily admit that they chased the Beatles as the measuring stick all throughout the 60's. Their international appeal lasted a very short period of time, mostly because of the Beatles stranglehold on the charts and the public.

Motown isn't a musician or a band.

James Brown had nowhere near the commercial success, nor the longevity at the top of the game, that the Beatles had.

All were influential. None were remotely close to having the influence that the Beatles did.

People like to be contrarian and interject personal preference. The Beatles changed fashion, hairstyles, attitudes, social mores. Spoke about relevant topics in an era before musicians were afforded that luxury. Owned their own music and publishing rights, again when that wasn't the norm. Wrote, sold and are played more than any other two artists combined.

Everyone was influenced by someone. Nobody's influence was as far reaching or long lasting.

Likely the only composer of the rock era whose work will be studied decades from now. But intellectual interest doesn't equal influence.

I saw FZ live more than any other band or performer in my lifetime. But he's not close to the most influential.

You go to the trouble of qualifying Chicago "before Terry Kath died", but show Yes when they became the Buggles?!?

Not that either has any place in the discussion (though more so than Jethro Tull, I suppose), but at least strive for some level of credibility.

I couldn't disagree with anyone more on the Beatles and I don't really care enough to argue.

Haven't seen her mentioned but even if you don't like her music Madonna's hugely influential with most modern female artists. All the wild/risque outfits, the sexual styles and lyrics etc.

Call me gay but I actually really enjoy all her music. I downloaded her catalog about a week ago and spent about an hour playing her hits. I love the old stuff, from the first...three albums I guess. Lucky Star/Material Girl/Into the Groove/Borderline/Holiday/Papa Don't Preach

All incredible songs. Love them.

Although I've noticed that I have a deep affinity for all 80's music. I'm just getting into the Cure and INXS among others.
