    Queen overtake the Beatles as most successful albums act in UK history

    So what exactly do you base this upon? There are entire genres of music that the Beatles had little to no impact on, specifically hard rock and heavy metal that Queen heavily influenced. How did the Beatles redefine music? What was it that they accomplished that shattered the music world...

    Queen overtake the Beatles as most successful albums act in UK history

    I'm not ignoring the Beatles but it seems that you're saying the band was bigger than Elvis. Would the Beatles have been "The Beatles" if Elvis never existed?

    Queen overtake the Beatles as most successful albums act in UK history

    Ok, just to clarify (and correct me if I'm mistaken), you're basically saying that 1) The Beatles essentially helped create what R'n'R is today and 2) Queen were nothing more than simply being popular and had no lasting influence on music?

    Queen overtake the Beatles as most successful albums act in UK history

    Then don't? Seriously though, if we've gone from the ridiculous notion that "The Beatles created rock music" to the even more ridiculous "Elvis was nothing" mindsets, then perhaps this thread should be closed.

    Queen overtake the Beatles as most successful albums act in UK history

    I would agree with you that every artist had some silly songs in their catalog but c'mon, "Flash" was written with the campy "Flash Gordon" movie in mind. Things like that you need to take into consideration. On the surface, "Radio Ga Ga" might seem bad, if you only look at the title of the...

    Queen overtake the Beatles as most successful albums act in UK history

    Queen were always more popular outside of America. While today's society is slightly less concerned with homosexuality, when Queen were active, Freddie's sexuality played a big part in their fall. Back then, rock fans wanted "macho men" which Freddie obviously wasn't. Anyway, back in 1995...

    Queen overtake the Beatles as most successful albums act in UK history

    Here's another misleading statement about the Beatles. What "tools" exactly are you refering to? The ones the Beatles took from Little Richard? Chuck Berry? There's only ONE artist to have truly changed the rock landscape and that wasn't the Beatles. His name was Elvis. By the by, there...

    Queen overtake the Beatles as most successful albums act in UK history

    I can defend Queen in a reasonable manner, the question is can some defend the Beatles without being insulting to the poster (ok, me) in the process? Colin could say what he wants but he didn't need to insult my intelligence several times and then run off. THAT my friend, is rudeness.

    Queen overtake the Beatles as most successful albums act in UK history

    It got "ugly" when people got so high and mighty about the Beatles and the "joke" bands like Queen. I find it silly that some get so defensive about a record being broken and have to insult the bands that break them. Finally, if you knew it was a "mistake" then why in the world did you...

    Queen overtake the Beatles as most successful albums act in UK history

    IMO you're coming from that "The Beatles are gods" side of the argument and no opinion will sway you from any of their "lesser" qualities. Obviously Queen are a joke to you and you behave that way. That's fine, believe what you want but don't accuse me of being close minded or juvenile when your...

    Queen overtake the Beatles as most successful albums act in UK history

    Maybe it's because you like the Beatles and are therefore blind to their faults? I dunno, you tell me.

    Queen overtake the Beatles as most successful albums act in UK history

    I admit I DID get angry in my last post, the comment was completely uncalled for and it sounded like jealousy. Like "OMG! Somebody beat out the Beatles?!?! The heathens! Let's attack them for no sound reason." Afterall, this thread wasn't supposed to be a Queen vs Beatles topic and who was better.

    Queen overtake the Beatles as most successful albums act in UK history

    Whoa whoa whoa, hold your horses there. Queen are a joke? I would think a "band" that broke up over a woman would be more of a joke than anything. God how stereotypical. and "band"? Wasn't it really the Lennon/McCartney show? Be honest. The Beatles didn't have 4 #1 songwriters for their...

    Queen overtake the Beatles as most successful albums act in UK history

    According to the guardian.co.uk Owen Gibson, media correspondent Twenty years after they stole the show at the original Live Aid concert, and 14 years after the death of Freddie Mercury, Queen have been crowned the most popular UK band of all time. The group, currently on a critically...
