Battle of the Bands, The Beatles or The Stones?

Just wondering who you prefer?

It is said that the Beatles were extremely influential, and the world had never seen the like before. This may well be true, although I'd say you really had to be around at that time to fully appreciate this.

All that aside, what I'm really asking is who's music do you prefer?

Personally, purely from a musical perspective, I'm firmly a Stones man.

What say yee?

    I'm afraid I voted for option 3. I like a few songs from each but from the huge output of each I don't think that really means much. If it got to the stage that somebody was threatening to gouge out my eyeballs unless I chose, then I guess I'd go for the Stones. There still hugely overrated though...

    Rolling Stones and I'm into my 40th year of'em, seen'em 5 times ..they win simple...40 years biggest grossing touring band..who's to say whether the Beatles would have maintained this level of popularity..Stones have done it the Beatles haven't...excellent live infact amazing...

    It's hard to be humble when I'm so great...

    very hard one for me as I love both, but if I had to pick a winner, The Beatles would just about edge it.

    The Beatles, thought to be fair I haven't as much of the Stones.

    This is a must see for music/beatles fans http://uk.youtube.com/watch?v=Zddh5Vp-ApI all six or so parts are on there.

    Voted for the Stones. Anyone seen the new Scorrsese film about the Stones. I fancy it but just to lazy to get myself organised

    Last cinema/music film I remember seeing was Led Zeppelin (the song remains the same).

    I can listen to the music now and I know what I like but having been born in '66 I would say I'm not old enough to appreciate what it was all about back then.
    From the two I prefer The Stones but from bands of that era I like the music of The Who.

    The Beatles are the most overrated band of all time. I like a couple of their tunes, but they had a bunch of totally crap songs too.

    The Stones were a proper rock band doing blues rock which I love. The Beatles had a very boring image, and I find most of their catalogue vastly overrated. I was in a pub the other day when 'Paperback Writer' came on the radio (a song I had heard of but never heard) and I just thought 'Why is this song famous? It's boring!'

    Of course, Led Zeppelin p*sses on both.
