Hey, don't let it get to you. It says absolutely nothing! We Beatles fans have got nothing to fear of cos there'll never be a band to compete The Beatles! NEVER! Especially not Westlife.

Notice how these polls are "better than the Beatles?" or "worse than the Beatles?" ? Everybody is compared to the Beatles, because...

Isn't "better than The Beatles" a grammar mistake? Well it should be, because there isn't anything like that.

Read my topic: "Beatles, Zeppelin, westlife and radiohead!". There are many people , specially teens, convinced about the quality of such bands as westlife; their arguments are the same: THE BEATLES ARE OVERRATED!

Jesus Westlife are soooooooooo bad, there are far too many manufactured bands around, who rely on covers cos they can't write their own music let alone play any instruments.

Tops of the Pops and the charts are full of this sort of crap music because the only people that really buy singles now are little children with their pocket money and the adults just buy the album so you never get decent music in the charts hardly (apart from George and MSL which is an exception).

And when are they going to stop all this Pop Stars and Pop Idol bollocks?

Westlife will NEVER be the new Beatles. To be the new Beatles you need a little something known as TALENT! Something that most bands these days don't have. People say all 60's music is rubbish, so why do all todays bands cover the music from then? And how come all the music classics of the world are from the 60's???
