Would you consider The Beatles more rock or pop?

Question (32)      Rock (11)      The Beatles (4)      Pop (3)      John Lennon (2)      George Harrison (2)      Sixties (2)      Paul McCartney (1)      Ringo Starr (1)     


This all started with an argument between myself and my girlfriend over whether The Beatles were indeed more rock and roll or pop?

As most of their music predates the rock-pop split, I would sway towards "rock." What are your thoughts?

Pop - Boy band.
When you consider the whole ~ decade they were together as a group, I wouldn't say "pop OR rock" I'd say "MORE than just pop or rock" Very few bands reinvented themselves so much, but Queen is another example. You simply can't put them into a single genre when you look across their repertoire.

Consider just a small sample of their songs - Yellow Submarine, Oh Darling, A Day in the Life, Her Majesty, Sgt Peppers, Mr Postman/Please Please Me, Lady Madonna, Magical Mystery Tour. Then compare with Queen (eg. Bohemian Rhapsody, Crazy little thing, Killer Queen, Somebody to love, Gotta Break Free, We R Champions etc.) or Billy Joel (uptown girl, piano man, just the way you are etc etc) to name a few - they are just too versatile to cram into a single genre. Elton John is another one who would fit into several genres.
