Not to take anything away from Jimmy Miller the Stones early producer, but he was no George Martin.  That probably has a lot to do with this. 

I saw where George Martin was inducted with the Ahmet Ertegun Lifetime Achievement Award as a producer. Given his impact on the records, the Hall should have inducted him along with the band.

And Trent dilfer is a super bowl winning QB. A great song isn’t defined by its status on the charts.

All that party seems to care about anymore is protecting the rich and owning the libs. Gaetz always came across as a shady d-bag. It’s wild how folks like him keep becoming the stars of the GOP. What a garbage *** party.

I’m not old enough to know how good the Beatles were but I still feel like they were overrated. Especially when comparing them to their Motown contemporaries.

The Beatles were the original "boy band". If they hadn't been the first they wouldn't be in the top ten.

Probably for good reason. When I think boy bands, I think mostly talentless, pretty boys that don't play instruments, and are on stage doing some weird choreographed dance schtick.

Boys 2 Men could actually sing and harmonize very well, they had talent. But still no instruments and mostly just choreographed dancing, so ya still a boy band. Jodeci? C'mon man. 

And look, I'm not exactly bashing boy bands, they are what they are. All I'm saying is it's kind of incorrect to lump into the boy band category actual musicians who mostly write their songs, play their own instruments, and have actual talent. If not, then we might as well just call every male band that ever existed a boy band, all girl bands a girl band, and mixed bands as mixed bands. We don't do that for a reason.

The Beatles were the first boy band. Deal with it. lol. The fact that they were actual musicians had more to do with the era they originated than any comparisons you can make to the backdoor boys. 

Not sure of the exact definition of a boy band but the first boy band could have been the Temptations by some definitions.
