    Your choice may be based on quality, looks, longevity, or any other criteria you have. Which group was/is your fav? Have a reason?

    Beatles easily.

    Set the standard for a generation, and in just one decade produced more memorable music then any band in history.

    I would have to say the beatles. Both groups came out like gangbusters in the early to mid 60's. The Stones had a good British Blues sound. I did like the Stones a lot, but when their music changed...it just wasn't the same.
    The Beatles early music was groundbreaking. When they did their change with the Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band Album, it took them to a new level, that I really liked.

    PS Remember the "Beatle boots?"

    Wasn't a Beatle-maniac when everyone else was fawning all over them. Even now, as I listen to some of their earliest music, it comes off as nonsensical. Of course, there could very well have been a reason for that -- I wasn't interested enough to check. Always found it interesting that such a popular group couldn't keep it going longer. Too much individual talent / ego?

    I would agree that there are "better", but not many made such "a hit".

    Beatles without doubt.

    The body of their work is so far and away superior to the Stones that comparing them is absurd.

    I like the Stones a lot, but they're not even in the same league with the Beatles.

    at the time i liked the Animals and the Kinks better than both of them,but i liked the Stones over the Beatles...they were harder rock....and that is something that took a hold of my young balls and never let go....

    :lol:

    This reminds me of a poll I was going to start last week but never got around to it. I was going to ask who is the second best british invasion band... because everyone knows the Beatles OWN the top spot, or so I thought! :lol:
