This band influenced so many people around the world that to this day they are considered the best band in rock and roll history. Beatlemania was created in the 1960’s, similar to Bieber Fever, it was a term that described The Beatles fandom and their love and devotion towards the band. This was when their fame first began to rise. The Beatles first UK single was ... ... middle of paper ... ...many fans. Their fans have carried throughout generations and even the people who aren’t fans know all too well who the Beatles are.
Personally, I feel that the Beatles is the greatest band ever because they have influenced millions of people, their music was a huge success, they are well known around the world, and their songwriting skills were legendary. To start off, the Beatles have influenced millions of people all around the globe. In the early ‘60s, teenagers were just beginning to assert their voices as a generation, and the Beatles were something of an outlet for that voice (http://www.hooksandharmony.com/20-reasons-beatles-greatest-ever/). The Beatles appeared in the United States not long after John F. Kennedy was assassinated, so they were sort of an optimistic antidote for a nation under grief (http://usatoday30.usatoday.com/life/music/news/story/2012-06-10/beatles-50th-anniversary/55506324/1). Also, they had an influence of musical style, fashion, and even world view to a degree (in that for maybe the first time, the public cared what a pop start thought).
That event was followed by the Beatles themselves, who arrived in New York February 8, 1964 for three appearances with Ed Sullivan. The first show was scheduled for Sunday, February 9, the second was telecast from Miami a week later, and the third pre-taped for an airing in March. These concerts were the most watched television programs ever (70 million viewers) until recently. The Beatles' arrival in the United States was presaged by a deluge of advance publicity. Newsweek, Time, and Life have chronicled Beatlemania, UPI, and the AP(Associated Press) had done their part for the cause (including an AP wirephoto of J. Paul Getty sporting a Beatle wig), and even Vogue shoved high fashion aside momentarily in it's January, 1964 issue and carried a full-page photo of the group.
With their talent that was unlike anything seen before, they quickly became one of the most unforgettable bands to date. Due to their original music and popularity worldwide, The Beatles played a significant role in shaping music history as well as being icons for the 1960s counterculture movement. The Beatles were first introduced into the United States on the night of February 9, 1964 when they made their appearance on The Ed Sullivan Show (The Beatles 1). Over seventy three million people were recorded to be watching the debut, the largest number ever in television history (The Beatles 1). Soon after their performance on The Ed Sullivan Show, The Beatles invaded the world with their original music, dance moves, and good looks.
However, soon after they dropped the “Silver” and became just “The Beatles”. (All Music) In “The Beatles” career, they had much success, it was believed that this success came from their creative lyrics, their harmonic vocals, and their friendly personality. It also helped that they were one of the first groups to include more original music on their records than covers of songs written by other people. (All Music) The Beatles started out with 3 original members; John Lennon, Paul McCartney, and George Harrison. During their first few years as a band, they constantly change their lineup and eventually became just 3 guitarists, they proved that they were the best musically and the best with the group personality wise.
The Beatles “I wanna hold your hand” You have probably heard this song before, but did you know it was from The Beatles? In the 1960s, there were hippies, rock enthusiasts and even more groups. But, ever since the mid-60s the rock music has never been the same. With the Beatles being the most famous rock group in the 1960’s.

Not only were they important because of their music, their message of love and peace was a great influence on the world at that time as well. Even after almost fifty plus years, they still have an influence on popular culture and music to this day. In this essay I will make the case why the Beatles revolutionized music and pop culture with their style, lyrics, and message of peace and love. If it were not for the Beatles, music would not be what it is today. The Beatles are the most successful music group of all time and even if they were just known as any other music group they would have secured their place in history, but they were more than just a group.
