Posted on 24 March 2014 Tags: Entertainment

The battle between the Beatles and the Rolling Stones has continued for more than half a century. Both have managed to develop a huge fan-base, which makes it all the more difficult to decide which one is the best. The Beatles were a pop band while the Rolling Stone was a rock band. So the question that comes to every music lover’s mind is which band is better? Read on to find out.

A Look at The Beatles
If you look closely, both these bands have a lot in common. For example, both are English bands that gave music a whole new dimension in the 20th century. However, it was only the Beatles that continued setting the standards every time they performed.
Furthermore, the Beatles are the ones that initially perfected the genre of rock n roll in the mid 60’s, while the Rolling Stones just followed in their footsteps. So, as you can see, the Beatles were the innovators. Another fact that established their legacy was that they broke up as soon as they started to stumble. This helped them considerably in preserving the reputation they built in their prime.

A Look at The Rolling Stones
Now let us take a look at the aspects where The Rolling Stones transcends the Beatles. The early break-up of the Beatles meant that the Rolling stones had more time to live in their prime. It was during this period that they released their classic album Sticky Fingers and Exile on Main Street, which gave them a slight edge over the Beatles.

Another aspect where this band surpasses the Beatles is live stage performance. The Rolling Stone set an impeccable record of delivering the best onstage performance in that era, something that the Beatles never managed to achieve.

So there you have it, two of the best bands battling for supremacy. As you can see, there’s no apparent winner. Both of the bands were fantastic in their own respect. However, only you can determine the winner according to your taste.
