*shakes hands at the heavens, cursing tegan and sara for starting that trend*
why mullets gotta be *the* white queer hairdo though?
I’m tryna look REFINED and PUT TOGETHER, not UGLY AF while farm goth, thank u.
my wardrobe is 30% hand-me-downs, 30% super carefully chosen shit from wall mart, 30% kohls+mall+online lol
I hate bringing out like *conservatory student voice* cause it literally is just a even snobbier, higher class version of greasy classic rock child but I do like visiting upon like people that go “all music of today wouldn’t exist without *insert white dude rock band*”
the thing is though, the only people to take DIRECT influence off the Beatles are like jangle pop, power pop and Brit pop groups. Everything else would be ok.
the Beatles were a sort of amplifier of cultural attitudes so if they got into something, all the people who weren’t already in it got in it.
a far more interesting question would be not having led zeppelin and well, a lot of mainstream “hard rock” wouldn’t exist but otherwise, not so much effect.
tbh in a world without the Beatles the “fab four” would be the Rolling Stones and then some other contemporary group would take the role as the more teen-oriented, poppier group.
People treat the Beatles like they are the sole originators of every style they popularized and music does not work like that like 97% of the time.
the professed influence of *insert throwaway classic rock group here* in music has been wildly trumped and ya’ll saying that cause that’s all the music you know.
