    Who ROCKED harder, Beetles VS Stones

    The Rolling Stones, IMO.

    Beatles, as entertaining as they were/are were, opted to be more cerebral than the Rolling Stones.

    The Stones, throughout, had/have an an immediacy that the Beatles lacked.

    If The Stones had a singer that could actually hit some notes during a Live performance they would have gotten my attention more. Give me The Beatles in a landslide.

    Ah, but razor...the question was who rocked harder. Nobody rocks harder than Keith Richards...don't think he has an equal to being the living, breathing human equivalent to rock 'n' roll.

    AJane, are you entirely sure, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that Keith Richards is living & breathing?

    Frankly I think George Harrison could play rings around Keith & for that matter so could Brian Jones, but alas, he didn't live long enough to get to legendary status.

    That's too funny.

    It occurred to me, however, shortly after originally posting, that either the question I posed, or the limits that I allowed in the question were off-base.

    I actually, over the period they existed, preferred The Beatles over the Rolling Stones, but much of the music I admire from the Stones came AFTER the Beatles were a thing of the past. How do you compare in that manner? In my opinion, you don't.

    In order to fairly compare, at least between these two bands, I think you'd have to compare them head to head, as they were putting out content at the same moment in time.

    I, as an afterthought thought of other bands who may've rocked harder than these two during the same period, depending on definition and perception, but that didn't occur to me in my addle-minded posting state, so I guess Beatles vs. Stones it is.

    Paused a few to reconsider, and I'd still side with the Stones, though I preferred The Beatles at the time, and in some manner always will.

    Rolling Stones all day long! I love them! They put on a great show every time I've seen them! Mick is the consummate front man!

    It's hard to beat the Stones. (Of course, Robert Plant and Jimmy Page do, but they are not in the question, lol) I recall dancing until I almost dropped in 1989 when I first saw the Stones in concert. And I was quite a bit younger than they were! I like the Beatles in a different way.

    Well, the Stones are harder rock style music. The Beatles left such an impressionable mark in the history of music, though. I like both groups, but as far as whose songs I liked more of, the Beatles. I just ordered two of the most amazing dvd concerts of Paul McCartney, and to me, Sir Paul is very hard to beat.
