Well, the Beatles did have the top 5 slots on the Billboard chart at one time. No one has ever come close to that. Outkast had the top two, but that's still not close to what the Beatles accomplished.Originally Posted by Rocketboy
Beatlemania may have been a lot of hype, since from footage I've seen, the girls are screaming so loud and passing out, I doubt they even heard the music. However, those early tunes were very good pop tunes that infused some new energy into the music scene. Then they experimented more with their later stuff and still were able to come up with some great tunes. Plus, there is the influence they had on so many other musicians. Then they went on to have successful solo careers. Even Ringo had a few hits.
