I agree with the OP. He's a smart man.....
I am ready to "Make America Great Again."
First I'll say, I like pop music, but the Beatles aren't my favorite by a long shot.
With that said, I'll cite this as the reason I believe McCartney is due his accolades. This composition is assessed far better in the link than I could.
The fact that the complexity of this tune could be presented so simply and (IMO) amusingly is testament to his prowess.
BTW, I like cabernet. As always, opinions vary.

And while disliking their earlier albums and losing interest in anything they did it all changed with Sgt. Pepper's
At first it too did not make an impression on me, I pretty much ignored it. Until one day in driver's education class. I still remember it, we were on State at William Streets, downtown Ann Arbor in the summer of 1967. WJR was analyzing the album, forgot who's show it was and they started playing "When I'm 64". Well at 15 you think that is a million years away, our instructor said "It's really not that far off". He was a great instructor, used to take his students to breakfast or lunch depending if the class met at that time. And we could obviously listen to the radio, he wanted us to experience driving as it really was.

Frank Zappa said that the Shaggs are better than the Beatles. The Ruttles... maybe. Here's the Shaggs...

It was a hell of a time to be a H.S. kid for so many reasons. The Beatles were in the middle of it all so there's that. I'm glad I was there for it. Wine really sucks.
Set the controls for the heart of the Sun.
I always call them the Shitty Beatles.
I've never drank, so no idea about wine.

I can not disagree with the op.

Knowing what one is talking about is widely admired but not strictly required here.
Although sometimes distracting, there is often a certain entertainment value to this easy standard.

Complaining about the Beatles? In 2019?
Don't worry. I don't think they are going to get everybody back together for a comeback tour.
"It did not really matter what we expected from life, but rather what life expected from us. We needed to stop asking about the meaning of life, and instead to think of ourselves as those who were being questioned by life – daily and hourly. Our answer must consist not in talk and meditation, but in right action and in right conduct. Life ultimately means taking the responsibility to find the right answer to its problems and to fulfill the tasks which it constantly sets for each individual." Viktor Frankl, Man's Search for Meaning, 1946.
I wanted to make sure I didn't experience karma. That's why I wanted so long. Oh, and that new movie, "Yesterday." (Which actually looks kinda funny.)

To the OP:
Congrats on creating a genuine clickbait thread.
You don’t like The Beatles? Cool.
But the influence that The Beatles, and to a lesser extent The Beach Boys and Harry Nilsson had on music is incalculable.
To say they “sucked” is an ignorant statement.
All it takes...is all you got.

"The Nazis entered this war under the rather childish delusion that they were going to bomb everyone else, and nobody was going to bomb them. At Rotterdam, London, Warsaw and half a hundred other places, they put their rather naive theory into operation. They sowed the wind, and now they are going to reap the whirlwind."
Well then, this could make things interesting.
“Description: Jack Malik is a struggling singer-songwriter in an English seaside town whose dreams of fame are rapidly fading, despite the fierce devotion and support of his childhood best friend, Ellie. After a freak bus accident during a mysterious global blackout, Jack wakes up to discover that The Beatles have never existed. Performing songs by the greatest band in history to a world that has never heard them, Jack becomes on overnight sensation with a little help from his agent.”

I preferred the Dave Clark Five rather than the Beatles. But then again I didn't like Stroh's beer either. I guess I was quite the contrarian back then.

I never say "sucked" when it comes to music tastes.
I think the Beatles are/were the most influential Rock Band in history.
However, they were/are no where near my favorite.
Wine tastes vary - don't drink it then.
|On the DL|
Nah, not "ignorant statement." It's an opinion. Everybody is entitled to one.
A mind is a terrible thing.
|Common sense is genius dressed in its working clothes|
I like the Abbey Road album. A few other Beatles songs as well. They were influential even though some of their stuff did suck.
Wine, or liking it is entirely a taste thing. I fucking love single malt scotch and bourbon. Some people don't. Wine , I can take it or leave it but it usually best with food.

Do you like The Rolling Stones?
Nah he is probably a Boy George fan. Just kidding, I would suspect Duran Duran and Sting. IDK he is playing it close to his vest.
