Have you heard of Jesus? Have you heard of The Beatles? Which one do you think is more popular? Today’s infographic compares the popularity of The Beatles to that of Jesus; definitely worth your time. The popularity of The Beatles is one that is unmatched by any other band or celebrity; how many people do you know that have had an infographic made comparing them to Jesus?
Admittedly when I was younger I was not a big fan of The Beatles, but my taste in music was also questionable- it was a time when I though Linkin Park was the shit. However, time has passed and my taste has gotten better, I realized Linkin Park was shite and The Beatles are undeniably one of the greatest, if not the greatest, band of all time. Evidenced by the amount of number ones released by the band, totaling at 20. The five songs to have held number one the longest include: Can’t Buy Me Love, Yesterday, Get Back, I Want to Hold Your Hand, and Hey Jude.
As time has passed, the popularity of The Beatles has yet to waver or even have anyone else come close to reaching it. As major music dies out and indie music becomes the new thing, it does not seem like any other musician will ever challenge their greatness. Even when discussing other greats like The Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin, The Temptations, etc., they barely hold a flame to the fame of The Beatles. However, how does Jesus fair? If I had to guess I’d say he probably puts up quite the fight. [via]
