Default Rock and Roll Music - Beach Boys or The Beatles Poll

Growing up in the early 70's there was a local radio station (WLS) that did a poll like this and it lasted for a few weeks and got quite a bit of airplay. 50 years later, I figured it would be interesting to see what people think about each version. I'll hold off on my pick for now.

I'm biased because I grew up with it, but I much prefer the Beatles version. It has more energy, which is the point of a song like this, and John does a better job singing (even though it doesn't reach Twist and Shout heights here I love the way he sings Rock n Roll songs so much)

Thumbs up

I prefer the Beatles' version. It is rougher and more powerful. But I also like the typical sound of the Beach Boys.

Let me add this from google search:

1958 Chuck Berry
1964 Beatles
1976 Beach Boys
I'm very interested in pop paleontology. But I still don't know much.

Today I learned a bit more again.

The Beatles version but with the Beach Boys backing harmonies (you can do this by playing them both at the same time.

^ What Marie said, word for word. And The Beatles did this in one take (with George Martin overdubbing piano later).

I love The Beach Boys, but this isn’t their finest hour imho.

Chuck’s original is great – if Johnnie Johnson could be transferred to The Beatles’ version, we’d have absolute perfection.

Hi, Gutmensch! Welcome to MB

Thanks for giving us those dates, as it puts the Beach Boys version into the context of their long slow decline from 1967's Hereos & Villains imo.

So I also agree with you, Marie and ribbons. (*googles Johnnie Johnson*)

After those links being broken for, like, 5 years or more, I finally got around to fixing them, thanks in large part to the Beatles Youtube site allowing hotlinking.
