Because they are kids, their taste in music will change (hopefully).

Well not all young kids are not listening to the beatles. My nephew and his friends are 10 and listen to bands like Pink Floyd, U2 and The Beatles and are buying their music. But its the same with every generation, whether it be Five, New Kids on the Block, NSync, Busted, Blue, Bay City Rollers or One Direction, bands (and artists) come along that appeal to that age group and are marketed to do so. Be it oldness of the Beatles, identification with those acts, pure physical attraction from 13 year old girls or whatever should it be that unnatural or cause for concern that these artists are popular. I dont believe so because no one really thinks the music is timeless and will last for generations to come (no matter how much we are told its incredible and creativity is bursting at the seems and dont tell me its quality music). Its music for that generation at that time, generally marketed to a specific age group and audience. Even The Spice Girls who were absolutely massive, were everywhere and viewed as one of the greatest Girl Bands ever are not remembered fondly music-wise now and how many young girls related to one of the 5 and the idea of Girl Power.

The talent shows like The X-Factor, Pop Idol, Americas Got Talent are far more about making money for record companies than discovering raw talent and letting it nurture over the years, target young boys and girls and get their cash, and the executives know this fine well.

The kids will grow up, acts like One Direction will no longer appeal and disappear into the pit of 'how were they big", some new act will come along and take their place ready for the next money-lined pinata, and many older folk will be asking the same question "why is this shit on my radio?".

Are you like in fourth grade, because having kids in your class tell you to drop The Beatles and go with 1D and JB* seems like something that would happen in elementary school. I have never gotten that from anybody, nor do I tell people that the music they listen to is inferior to the music I like. It's ignorant; whether something is good or not is subjective so obviously not everybody is going to agree. 

 
There are many kids nowadays who don't like The Beatles, I think the biggest reason is probably because The Beatles are from the sixties. For a lot of kids, what they listen to is what the big thing on the radio is at the moment. People who only listen to nowadays stuff probably won't like The Beatles just because their music is old, and the sound is way different than what they're used to. The Beatles music isn't quite as loud as music nowadays. Also, there are probably a lot of people who don't go out of their way to find new music, and if they do it's for local bands or something like that. 
 
You say when you ask people who claim to not like The Beatles what songs of theirs they have listened to, they can't answer your question. That doesn't mean anything. If they don't like The Beatles, then why should they be able to name any of their songs? I don't think I could name any Rush or Avenged Sevenfold songs, but I do know that I don't like either of those bands. There probably are kids who claim they dislike The Beatles music even though they have never truly listened to them, but you can't assume anybody who doesn't like The Beatles is just ignorant. Some people just don't like them. 
 
There are still a lot of kids who do listen to The Beatles today. In English a couple weeks ago we read an article on The Beatles, and everybody was saying how much they liked them. My brother's friend just came over, and he's wearing Beatles pajama pants. So yeah, kids in this generation don't dislike The Beatles, it actually seems like most, or a good majority of kids do. 
 
*I'm assuming you are both talking about Justin Bieber, because the real JB is amazing! Also, how could you diss the Jo Bros? I know you couldn't diss their looks (except Kevin, and they all had their bad phases, but I'm talking overall.) Their music will live on forever because they are such amazing musicians and people!<33 Why with all the teeny bopper hate, though, people?

fifth, don't judge me

 

Seriously, you're only in fifth grade? Damn, most fifth graders are mad annoying, but you must be pretty cool. 

When I was in fifth grade, I watched the Hello Goodbye video on YouTube (people were saying how great The Beatles were, so I was curious), and I remember thinking something like "Man, these guys look like creeps, and is that really how people dressed back then? This song is so slow, eww how could anybody like this?." I only listened to the first few seconds of the song because it was that terrible. Funny to think about now, because the creep in the blue is actually my lover and future husband.

Kids of my age like poppy music, I don't know why I seldom see teens like broader genres like Jazz, Blues and etc. unless they are musicians (people who play instruments). They do listen to some of the Beatles' music but only the "popular" ones like
Hey Jude, Ob-La-Di Ob-La-Da, Yesterday, and come to think of it I noticed the only John Lennon song they would listen to is "Imagine"

I only know 2 or 3 songs by John Lennon. But that doesn't really matter since I'm not a John Lennon fan, but a Beatlesfan.

I know a lot of people who like the Beatles. In fact, most of my friends listen to older bands like Pink Floyd and the Beatles. I'm quite a bit older than the OP though, so maybe that has something to do with it.
