Were the Beatles a bad influence on western society?

Post by Boner_Jones » December 30th, 2012, 4:20 am

dont' get me wrong... yeah I like their songs but... I look at the world and... shit man it's f*cked like u wouldn't believe. They promoted drugs and... they said they were more popular than Jesus, I mean WTF, how can a rock band be more popular than 2000 year old religion?? They had a big affect on teenagers who became adults running the world... It's like everything started going to shit from the 1960s...

Yes they were a bad influence, especially after Paul McCartney was swapped with a double. Lennon was killed in 1980 by a CIA assassin - so it shows how much influence the Beatles had.

The assassination of JFK was a coup. That's when the 50s ended and what became known as the 60s and the counterculture began. The Beatles were on the Ed Sullivan show shortly after Kennedy was killed, which was a huge event at the time. Drugs, rock n roll, and free sex eventually were replaced by feminism and political correctness and the stifling conformity the US has today to go along with a dumbed down and ignorant population.

Did they change music or did they change the world? They popularized LSD, pot... before them drugs were unheard of... the ratty looking hippie look became 'cool' after the 60s... ...John Lennon was a radical feminist hippie hanging out with commies...

Why did the Beatles ever stop performing?

Check out this book that claims that they made a pact with Satan. Did you know that Lennon's assassin said he was possessed by demons and had to undergo an exorcism after the assassination? Pretty freaky huh? ... story.html ... ophecy.htm ... 794504/pg1

Songs like yellow Submarine... Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds (LSD), they were about drugs.

Listen to Revolver or sgt Pepper... all about drugs.

Then John Lennon said they were more popular than Jesus....

Listen to music before the 60s and after the 60s.... rock music became ruder, nasty and dirty, not all of it, but a lot of it... like it became cool to say 'F you' to decency... and young people listen to it.

ok their music is fun, don't get me wrong but...

I think the america went to shit after the 1960s and... the Beatles shaped the 1960s. i like the Beatles but.. I have to be honest. ... Like Winston I'm a fearless truth seeker...
