Actually, I don't care for either... so, wasn't able to vote
The Beatles set the standard for their generation and have yet to be equaled. The Beach Boys were an incredible pop band and great innovators but they did not and could not eclipse or equal the Beatles, although they did come closer than any American band. On a scale of 1 to 10 I give the boys from Liverpool a solid 10 and the Beach Boys a big 9.
Beatles, Beach boys....never heard of them.....what about the Beastie Boys?
I was 9 when the Beatles came to America. Their music matured as I did, soundtrack of my life. I never paid attention to the bb, they had some good songs on the radio but...with all the hoop-la (couldn't think of a better word) about Pet Sounds, I gave it a listen. A few familiar, good tunes but a masterpiece? I can't see it. Satanic Magesties Request is a better album. BB might make the top 25 pop bands list, but they'd be in the 20s.
As I understand it the BB's were hamstrung by Brian's overbearing father and Brian's severe stage fright. But for that they probably would have progressed to more creative music sooner like the Beatles did.
Alot of waxing poetic here about a couple of pop bands....... Not that I don't enjoy both but......
