Old School Music Fans: Do you like more the Beach Boys or the Beatles?

For me personally, it's the Beach Boys though there's lots of talent in both groups. I have a ton of Beach Boys songs I prefer to Beatles songs, and I think vocally the Beach Boys slayed...even 80s post-peak Beach Boys.

Re: Old School Music Fans: Do you like more the Beach Boys or the Beatles?

I like the Beach Boys and I have their much acclaimed Pet Sounds album but to me The Beatles catalogue is unequalled. I can see why to most they are the greatest band ever.
Having said that It's not like I've heard every Beach Boys and Beatles albums, but from what I have heard I vote The Beatles

Top 10: Ashleigh Barty, Eugenie Bouchard, Caroline Garcia, Jamie Hampton, Jelena Jankovic, Agnieszka Radwanska, Lucie Safarova, Maria Sharapova, Karolina Sprem, Sam Stosur.

All time favourite: Anna Chakvetadze


Will my weakness for an hour, make me suffer for a life time?

I actually prefer other artists covering Beatles songs. Brilliant song writers but I don't enjoy their recordings. Whereas I like the Beach Boys own recordings.

Just to add to that, I think John Lennon was maybe the best solo artist from the two groups. He has great songs .

I like BB songs more as they're more catchy, my type of music.

I listen to the Beatles way more often than the BB. They're sort of irritating to me, like Jimmy Buffett. The only song of theirs that I will stop and listen to is Don't Worry Baby.

The BeachBoys really shouldn't be in the same category as The Beatles.

I really love both
If I had to choose, The Beatles. But I'm voting both here because they are probably my 2 favorite non-active groups.

Beach Boys were revolutionary in their day for use of harmonies and production. They have been highly influential.

I'm not under any illusion that the Beach Boys are ahead of the Beatles in many stats used to measure greatness, but sales and all that stuff are irrelevant in terms of personal connection to either group one way or the other .

To be fair the Beach Boys were considered in the mid 60s to be the Beatles primary competition

Here's a couple of acapella, just for fun (some instruments are audible but oh well):
