That was a unique time in history when young people were yearning to break free from their parents in every way and be unique and rebellious in ways that had not been possible. Nowadays that rebellious sentiment is almost a given, but it was this generation that started it. The Beatles arrived at an important time to achieve that and they grew rebellious along with their audience.”
The user also said: “They started out as conforming to the norms of popular music: matching “uniforms”, short conservative hairstyles, clean-cut appearance, short songs about girls, nothing too deep. Then they grew too to become their own unique voices within their group, they no longer wore matching suits, grew out their hair, took drugs which were reflected in their songs, became individuals.”

I would even include Madonna who currently has one of the highest-grossing world tours of any artist. I am not saying the quality of music is the same as the Beatles but for universe appeal, there are many artists that can compete.”
