Without a doubt, XTC.  The similarities between Andy Partridge & Lennon, and Colin Moulding and McCartney, are uncanny. And the similarities between Swindon and Liverpool.  I always felt that XTC matured into the band that would most closely have resembled the Beatles had they continued.  Superb musicianship on both sides as well.

Just for a larf, listen to these albums side-by-side:

 

With the Beatles -- White Music

Rubber Soul -- Drums & Wires

Revolver -- Black Sea

The Beatles -- English Settlement

Sgt. Pepper -- Mummer; Skylarking; Apple Venus Vol. 1

Abbey Road -- Nonsuch

The unimaginative answer is Oasis, of course.

I feel like the answer is almost rhetorical because who hasn't been influenced by the Beatles? Perhaps not every band is so obvious about it, but it's easy to listen to a certain song from any genre, and hear a bit of melody or harmony, and think, where did that come from?

You're right, it'd be quicker to find bands that DON'T sound a bit like The Beatles.

Exactly my thoughts. They really are close to the core of the family tree of music.
