How could The Beatles be winnig? C'mon guys don't they win everything? Yes we all know they're the most influential rock band ever, but better than the Smiths or even Bob Dylan, are you guys high?

Uh, so? They win for a reason, they're really damn good and have a diverse catalogue that appeals to almost (OOMPHLOL) everyone.

Musically they're a thousand times more adventurous and complex than Dylan and The Smiths. Not better per se, but certainly no reason the see them lose. Sure it's mundane, but so what?

Change isn't always good. I voted for Dylan btw. As to complexity, but Day In The Life? I Want You? Happiness Is A Warm Gun? Revolution 1?

The Beatles are better than The Smiths in every concievable way and not just because The Smiths were a bunch of emo kids or because Morrissey is a huge spiteful douchebag who wrote some of the most retarded and overrated lyrics of the latter 20th century.

Uh, none of those are very complex, and the Smiths never really went outside of their comfort zone.
