    at it being a "trend" to be a Beatles fan. If so, the trend has lasted around 45 years now.

    My vote goes with the anti-Radiohead rabble.

    (Dis?)honorable mentions to The Velvet Underground, The Doors and The Grateful Dead.

    And I'm sure like everyone else, I'm horrified to find lots of my favorite bands represented in this thread

    It's all a trend, and teenage yuppies are destroying it.

    I know so many people that go to my school who think it's the coolest thing to wear their Beatles t-shirt 4 out of every 5 days of the week.
    The "Love everyone" is a definite trend. Every hipster within a 5 mile radius wears a "Love is the movement" or "To Write Love On Her Arms" shirt. Or maybe an eye-irritating neon shirt and/or pants.

    You basically accounted for the Beatlemania, fab four, mop top period of the band, but that's it.

    No, I assure you, they significantly changed rock'n'roll, and you can find testimony from tons and tons of contemporary and following rock musicians.
    You don't have to like the Beatles, but saying they aren't influential, or that they weren't praised in their day, is objectively false.

    OK, I'm a Radiohead fan and a Pink Floyd fan, and I have to say the two are nothing alike. They can only be compared by the fact that they both make "art" music, and Radiohead has never once tried to "copy" Pink Floyd. In fact, it was annoying people who listened to their music, were turned off by the hype and wanted someone to compare Radiohead to, just to dispel the fact that they are an amazing band, who made the comparison.

    And OneWithSoul, not to call you out or anything, but I dislike the way you act as if something is better just because it did it first. Both Radiohead and Pink Floyd make roughly-considered "art" rock, but just because Pink Floyd did it 20 years before Radiohead did, doesn't make them better OR give you the distinction to say Radiohead are "rip-offs." Something is not better than something else just because it happened way before the other thing did. That's like saying "my oldest son is better than my youngest son, because my oldest son was born first." They're both good on two different levels and in two different timeframes, you can't always compare something old to something new like that.

    Coldplay.

    Maybe not of all time, but they're up there, and they're current. I will refuse to believe that their lyrics have any substance, ever, though it's hard to do that because they make good music boring by the way they go about doing their songs, and tbh I really haven't listened to much of their lyrics.

    It would be hard for me to name a single artist. Off the top of my critic's choice head, My Bloody Valentine, Tupac, Pearl Jam, and a good portion of the acid rock/psychedelic era like Janis Joplin/Big Brother and the Holding Company, The Jefferson Airplane, and some of The Doors' output are all overrated by a lot of people.
