In Avengers: Infinity War, after Tony Stark says the Avengers broke up, Bruce Banner says "Like a band? Like the Beatles?"

In the first book of The Trials of Apollo (by Rick Riordan, the author of the Percy Jackson books)  Apollo, the Greek god of music and poetry, mentions some of his biggest regrets after he has been transformed into a mortal as a punishment:

"I remembered that day at Abbey Road Studios, when my envy led me to set rancour in the hearts of John and Paul and break up The Beatles." (chapter 8)

 

Apollo also mentions in book 2 that he performed with The Beatles at the Shea Stadium concert in 1966, but was pissed that Paul wouldn't let him lend his microphone.

 

It's also briefly mentioned in the last Percy Jackson book that The Beatles were demi-gods (and I'm still trying to figure out who their individual godly parent is supposed to be) .

I saw Sixteen Candles when it came out in 1984. The Beatles references went right over my head. I watched the movie the other day and they jumped out at me. They are in the first 12 seconds of the clip.

In an episode of Frasier I was watching today, Daphne said: "If Eddie were a Beatle he would be George."

 

Btw, Eddie's the dog
