I went with The Beach Boys.
Sorry to all the Beatles lovers out there.. I just don't think they're that great. Call them influential, I don't care. If they influenced the new 'awesome' music I hear now.. then that only strengthens my stance. I do own Beatles albums, I just get sick of their stuff really
fast. I could listen to Pet Sounds from The Beach Boys forever..
I would also choose The Rolling Stones over The Beatles. As for The Monkess.. well.. I liked their TV show.
