Did you know The Beatles were one of the most commercially successful bands in all of music history? That they have sold more albums than any other band in the US? That the Beatles' style of rock and roll gave them the number one spot on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the 100 Greatest Rock and Roll Artists of All Time?
But their impact was more far-reaching than music. Since John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr took the stage on The Ed Sullivan Show in early 1964, our culture has never been the same. Beatlemania brought new fashion trends, long hair for men, and -- bad or good -- a new way of looking at life.
