This editorial by a musician in the Washington Post whines about how popular the Beatles are even after all these years and says it's time we all stopped loving them for a change.  It mentions a book about how the Beatles destroyed Rock and Roll, in which the author laments that 12 year olds have nothing better to listen to than The Beatles these days.

I wonder if the author of this editorial would be interested to know that I, an avid music fan who has followed indie rock for the last twenty years, have started listening to The Beatles and find them infinitely more satisfying than 90% of the music that is being recorded today.  I believe that The Beatles are still popular today because the quality of contemporary music is diminishing, and The Beatles represent a pinnacle of achievement.

12 years olds hear it.  I hear it.  What's wrong with this guy's ears?

At least that would've been slightly entertaining. And if he'd have a nice body, at least we'd have something to look at.
