The Beatles are the #1 recording act of all time. In 8 short years they accomplished more than any other artists. They have the most pop/rock #1 hits with 20 on the Billboard charts and 22 on the Cashbox charts in the US. They have the most #1 hits in most countries too. The Beatles have 19 #1 albums more than any other artists. They also have sold more records than any other artist at 1.3 billion plus. Their songs are the most covered by other artists. The Beatles are in the rock 'n roll hall of fame as are John, Paul and George solo. They are in the song writers hall of fame and the vocal group hall of fame. They were voted #1 all time by their peers in Rolling Stone magazine, Entertainment Weekly, VH-1 and Variety magazine named them the Icons of the 20th century. 31 years after they broke up they had a #1 album that to date has sold over 36 million records and was #1 in 35 countries. They are the only artists to have the top 5 positions in the charts on the same week. If you read or watch any rock history book or film you will find that not only did they change music but the world too.

--Their greatest accomplishments however are not seen but heard. They virtually invented every musical idea in popular music. Whether not wanting to or not being aware of it..........every artist since has not escaped their musical landscape. Of course this is just my opinion.
