Getting kinda sick of this what if the Stones weren't as good as the Beatles? They were better than most bands have a right to be.

I don't think any Rolling Stones partisans have ever showed up here and started trolling...that'd be kinda interesting.

Give a listen to Aftermath! Released several months before Revolver and tried a few innovations that even THAT undisputed let's-try-anything masterpiece never got around to! (Not necessarily with such fully successful results, mind you.)

Both of these bands are wiped out by One Direction.

totally. No competition. And then there is Justin Bieber. 17psujydv5dhpjpg.jpgImage Enlarger

but anyway back on topic. The Stones were more or less trying to imitate the Beatles for a long time, making me lose most of my respect for them. There isn't a comparison in my opinion, although people tend to think that they are in the same league. The Beatles have singing ability, flexibility, and over-all musical talent that far outweighs the stones. Besides, the Beatles are much better looking, wouldn't you say?a-hard-days-night-paul-7

Wait a second-who recommended the Stones to Decca? It could only be George Harrison!

By hook or by crook, I'll be last in this book.

Examiner reports that in a new book called 'The Unreleased Beatles' by Richie Unterberger its revealed that Mick and Keith wrote a song for the Beatles called 'Give Me Your Hand and Hold It Tight' which they rejected. 

An excerpt from the article reads

According to Unterberger, Mick Jagger revealed the existence of the song in 1965. “A long time ago, me and Keith wrote something called ‘Give Me Your Hand and Hold It Tight,’ but the Beatles wouldn’t do it. They wrote one for us as well, called ‘Outside 109’ [possibly meaning ‘One After 909,’ which the Beatles had written years before and recorded at EMI in March 1963, though they didn’t release their own version until Let It Be]. We said we wouldn’t do the song until they did ours. So nothing happened on either side. We’re still waiting.” Despite Jagger's shaky memory and the fact the song was turned down by the Beatles, it was released by Teddy Green in 1964.

I really don't see any point in comparing the two bands.  I love both bands.  

Same. I haven't owned much by the Stones in the past except for compilation albums and plan on changing that very soon. The documentary Crossfire Hurricane is in my rack at home and it is fabulous - highly recommended. My only wish about the Stones is that Mick would have have been a better singer.

To the fountain of perpetual mirth, Let it roll for all its worth.

Gosh. I really love both of these bands. Lately i have been getting into The Rolling Stones l. I just bought Exile On Main Street by them and i am saving up for the Rolling Stones' box set. I Love them both but The Beatles win just slightly. 

Now i can compare my Favorite things about them (Remember this is just my opinion)

Favorite Song

Rain > Star Star

Favorite Album

Revolver > Exile On Main Street (Havent heard all of it so this is what i will say for now)


The Beatles < The Rolling Stones

First Hit Single

Love Me Do < Satisfaction

Last Hit Single

The Long And Winding Road < Start Me Up


George Harrison > Keith Richards


The Beatles > The Rolling Stones

Physcadelic Album

Sgt. Pepper > Their Satanic Majesties Request (Havent heard all of it so this is what i will say for now)


Buddy Holly = Muddy Waters


Oasis > Very Minor Bands

Lets Rack up the points

The Beatles : 7 The Rolling Stones: 4

I Think that Rolling Stone should do a cover story of The Rolling Stones covering "Like a Rolling Stone" or if a Type of Beetle was named after The Beatles.
