Are the black eyed peas comparable to the Beatles?

I think they are amazingly creative and bold.

    ask this question in about 20 or 30 years!

    assuming the black eyed peas are still around then!

    now listening to:trippin' on a hole in a paper heart-STP

    edit-when the black eyed peas accomplish anything close to what the beatles did(see below),then we'll talk:

    they inspired other artists and bands to write their own songs,they changed the artist/producer relationship in the studio,they changed the way music was made in the studio,they made an impact on pop culture that's being felt even as we speak,they made it fashionable for men to have long hair,they changed the way people perceive rock groups by not having the standard front man with backing group,they redefined what it meant to be an international celebrity,they inspired other musicians to use certain instruments and music companies to make instruments,they inspired other bands and artists to speak their minds about the relevant issues of the day,helped to change the perception of the rock album from being a collection of songs to a work of art,unofficially made english the language of rock and roll(thus inspiring many overseas musicians to learn english),lennon and mccartney were among the 1st songwriters to have a stake in the publishing of their songs,helped to inspire other rock groups to create their own record labels,they brought the music of india to the west by being the 1st western musical act to use indian instruments on their records,they were the ones who created music videos(though other artists like queen,MJ,and duran duran perfected the art form.they used the blueprints the beatles drew up!),one of the 1st acts to take a stand for civil rights

    need i go on...

    i think this quote from the compleat beatles says it better than i ever could:"it must be stoically accepted that the beatles were in the end a phenomenon of the 60's,the 70's and beyond were only to feel their influence."

    it's been almost 50 years since the beatles came out and 40 years since they broke up and the beatles are still remembered,talked about,and still influencing artists to this day!

    now to elaborate on how the beatles took a stand on civil rights:in september of 1964,the beatles were giving a concert in jacksonville,fl at the gator bowl,well word had gotten out to the beatles that the audience at the concert was going to be segregated,well the beatles and brian epstein sent a letter to the venue owners stating that if this was the case that they could have their money back and that the beatles would boycott the performance,of course racially seperating the audience was never planned,but it said a lot about the beatles to take such a stand!also on that same tour,at a stop in philadelphia,the beatles were dismayed to find the entire audience for that show(13,000)were all white!

    The Beatles. someone quite chosen the Black Eyed Peas and went on to state that the Beatles were gay and overvalued? they have of route were given their artists mixed up! The Beatles did not decide on automobile music like the Black Eyed Peas do. also, the Beatles might want to play absolutely gadgets, compared to the Black Eyed Peas.

    Yes. However, there are way too many people who associate rap and electro music with a lack of originality. That is mind boggling to me, considering that every artist has an inspiration. I congratulate Black Eyed Peas for having the ability to excel at anything they do.

    The Beatles are quite simply put the greatest and most influential band in the long history of pop music

    The Black Eyed Peas are about # 3413 on that list

    Have you ever heard them try to perform live? They are a studio band, and really don't sound that good onstage. I don't think any of them can play instruments either? Black Eyed Peas are good pop music, but I doubt people will be listening to them 40 years after they break up, and their catalogue of music will not be worth 100+ million.

    um, okay. the black eyed peas, or any other band for the matter, is not, and will not, ever be comparable to the beatles
