I'm not overreacting about the Beatles' record getting tied or suprassed or whatever. I don't care, really, because I know what the Beatles were (great/genius) and what they stood for (love.) In fact, those five consecutive Beatles chart toppers were some of their sweetest and most naive.

Houston? Hello Houston, we have a problem... Hello Beatle-people, you're okay? Your talking about 50 Cent like your dads and granddads were talking about your favourite band 40 years ago... Come on. It's Pop, Rock, Rap or whatever. Uhh, guys with long hair?! Shocking! Uh, a black musician talking about nothing than money and birds? Shocking! Yes, Beatmusic is the only music that counts and Johnpaulgeorgeandtheonewiththebignose are our saints... It's okay. I also still love the Beatles, but I also love some new music (including rap) and that does me good. Maybe you should give it a try...

We've all been giving it a try since it's on MTV and radio all of the time. I'm not anti-Rap per se, as one of the first records I bought myself were Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five in the early 1980s. These guys had talent. A couple of great songs. Public Enemy - freaking fantastic. A Tribe Called Quest - great combo. But 50 Cent? Hardly in the same league of these classic Rap acts and even less so in the Beatles' league.

Hey Lobo. I graduated from high school last year. Rap "music" (and I use the term loosely) assaulted me from every angle. My own sister listens to it (shudder.) In fact, she has two rapper guys' posters hanging on her walls.

50 Cent, forty years from now will mean nothing. Heck, probably four years from now he'll be regarded with a giggle and a nudge, much like the Spice Girls, Hansen, Britney Spears and other simliar hacks.

What I get from the article is that 50 cent has 4 songs in the top 10 right? Well that's still not as good as the Beatles anyway cuz they had 5 songs in the top 5! So no need to get myself all in a tizzy just yet...

who cares is allI can say. Ask about 50 Cent in forty years and you think anyone will know or care? Not likely. Ask about the Beatles in forty from now and they'll still be known. Just my humble opinion there...;)

We are still talking about this because not everyone had the chance to express their opinions. I don't see anyone freaking out? So why tell them to relax?
