see this is kind of crazy because the Beatles are in a totally separate class and generation, of course their going to win.
Maybe Beatles Vs. Rolling Stones would be better?
Or Radiohead VS Sigur Ros?

The Beatles will beat ANY act. But I get the point. Kinda funny people voted for Radiohead.

Beatles Vs Rolling Stones Vs Led Zeppelin in the classic rock 60's/70's era.

Today...Radiohead wins no contest.

I don't know about Radiohead winning. The Beatles are headlining Deadchella and there is talk about a full tour. If they get Jesus to open for them, that would so make more money than Radiohead.

Radiohead could not exist without the Beatles. Sound boards had to be invented to recreate the sounds that Beatles and George Martin created. The way albums were recorded was forever changed by the Beatles. Radiohead has done a fine job of reaping the benefits, while making their own innovation and contributions.

Each band has made innovative, mind-blowing music, but the Beatles get the nod for their OG status.

i don't like the kind of argument you're making, because if we take it to its logical conclusion then we would have to say that the first band which used a guitar gets the nod for their OG status, or that the first band that ever used any sort of electronic element gets the nod for OG status, or even that the first person who ever sang gets the nod for OG status.

I think its hard to compare the two, just because of the fact that these bands hit their respective prime about 30 years apart, and the music industry was completely different in 1968 than it was in 1998, let alone 2008.

Agreed, two completely separate categories. But if I must choose, definitely the Beatles (& I love Thom Yorke..)

Radiohead has a long way to go fo this poll not to be absurd.

radiohead has 7 albums, the beatles have over 20. The beatles at one point had a new album every 9 months, all of which were good. The beatles took rock fun music, and made it into something more. You know where this is going right?

fuck that.... I do respect what the beatles did, no doubt, as far as careers go, they did it all... but as far being a fan of theirs, I am not, never have been... that does not mean that I don't think they mattered, I do...

but radiohead is better, I like them more, they have better songs, to me....

I do not know, if, or not, they would not exist because of the beatles.... maybe, maybe not....

but radiohead is better....

Radiohead wishes.
















Picture yourself in a boat on a river,
With tangerine trees and marmalade skies
Somebody calls you, you answer quite slowly,
A girl with kaleidoscope eyes.
