Revolver is the best Beatles album, guys. Anyone who says otherwise is spreading filthy lies.
I quite agree.

...now, why the hell is Avril Lavigne even on that list? It doesn't make sense to me.

Because the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is shit. The architecture of the building is even lame. The same architect as the Louvre? please. It just doesn't fit anything about Rock at all. It is now, and was from its inception a history written from the wrong vantage point.

the best beatles album is revolver guys, this is fact and fact cannot be debated

their self-titled was really good and would probably have taken first place for including the best song they have ever written except it had a lot of pretty unremarkable stuff too. it probably would have worked better had they trimmed it down and made it one disc (record?) instead of two.

I am glad we stopped talking about how much you all hate Rush, and instead started talking about how much you all like Revolver. You are all invited to my 2112 themed birthday party again.

Oh god this is a horrible cycle.

Just because Carol King and U2 are dreadful doesn't exclude the fact that the Beach Boys were awful.

F+ To the rock and roll hall of fame.

To quote Wayne Campbell:

"Led Zep didn't write tunes that everyone liked; they left that to the Beachies."

So at the very best the Beachies are proto-pop. Which still isn't good.

I heard this band, The Beatles, wrote some pop songs as well.  They must have sucked pretty terribly.

Also, I have absolutely no problem with Pet Sounds.
Also, even though we aren't talking about it anymore, Revolver is the best.

Did someone mention Rolling Stone earlier on?  I just read their "Top 500 albums of all time."

I actually saw a Hole album included on the same list as Nirvana.

Isn't that supposed to initiate a catastrophic disturbance in the fabric of space/time?

Also Sgt. Pepper's was number one.

Actually why don't we call this Rock and Roll Hall of Fame list "The Complete Dixie Chicks Discography and a Bunch of Other Music?"

Also, why has no one mentioned "Hard Day's Night?"

The only major thing about Hard Day's Night is that the film of the same name showed The Byrds how to become "rock stars".

(Edit: Don't take that as a negative thing, I like the album, but it is not the best. I don't consider it in the Top 5 Beatles albums, either.)

The one thing I don't understand about this list is the complete lack of Chuck Berry. If something is supposed to be "The Definitive 200" why is there nothing by the founder of the goddamn genre?

I find a lot of people agree. Everything before Rubber Soul (Or Help! if you want to be generous) wasn't that great. It wasn't that bad either, but not as shit hot as their later stuff.

So I hear...
Beatles before drugs = generic rock/pop of the day
Beatles after drugs = phenominal and legendary

I think there's a lot to be said for a band that can make a good, straightforeward pop record.
I'd not repeat any of those things in front of my mother or anything though...
