Funny. Kids are stupid. A lot of them wanted Chris Brown to beat them.

Re: Who tf is Paul McCartney?!!

It's sort of sad but most of the people saying this are pre-teens or teenagers. I have to admit that my taste in music wasn't all that great at 13-15. They'll learn soon enough about the greatness of Paul and the Beatles.

I don't expect teens to like his or The Beatles' music (I'm not fussed in all honesty) but surely they should at least know who he is

Yeah, that was also on Buzzfeed. Although, I think most was probably (misplaced) tongue-and-cheek.

But the have never heard of him? The Beatles are woven into the fabric of modern pop culture. It's like asking, Who is Marilyn Monroe?

Re: Who tf is Paul McCartney?!!

For the most part hasn't the Beatles limited the amount of licensing in terms of their songs being used in tv, movies, and television. With that sort of control, it's not that surprise their not as known by a younger generation that wouldn't necessarily be exposed to them.

Re: Who tf is Paul McCartney?!!

It's a little sad they havn't heard/don't know Sir Paul.

He's not everyone's taste (his later stuff) but the Beatles transcended music back in the 60's to a large extent, and they are still very popular now a days.

I'm surprised half of them at the grammy's didn't know who Barbra Streisand or Tony Bennett were either.

He's the second-most talented Beatle, after John Lennon .

He and the Beatles are so overrated, I am glad the new generation doesn't care to learn about them.

I've always confused Beatles with Bee Gees. I know a couple of them and I like their early works but after they passed their peak, they're like so overrated but I guess it's normal.

The Beatles were an Oasis tribute band and one of the most popular comedy routines of all time.

Good. Hopefully the same will be true of Madonna.
