I used to think this contest was close, but the more 60s music I listen to, the more I realise that the Beatles had far superior competitors than the Stones.

I don't think that the "rivalry" was so much about their music as it was about both bands' popularity at the time...  When it came to who was "the biggest", the Stones were really the only other who came remotely close...:-)
