The Beatles -- Marketed By Today's Music Industry

This is both brilliant and sad. Not to say that The Beatles weren't first presented to the world with a marketing facade when they first hit the scene, but it was, in the very least, a unique marketing facade.

Would The Beatles be just another generic emo boy group, lumped-in with all the rest? I guess it's kind of a moot hypothetical, since their influence remains so critical, but it does make you wonder.

    Clearly not enough eye liner.

    All I can say is, Thank God Almighty they came onto the scene in the era they did. If the Beatles had come out today and been like this, it'd be a friggin' tragedy.
