74 Undeniably Fab Quotes and Lyrics by the Beatles
While there have been rock bands both before and after, none have topped The Beatles as the most influential band of all time. Hailing from Liverpool in England, the band is best known for their lineup of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr. This core was dubbed the “Fab Four.” The Beatles were all international stars, leading to a never before seen fan frenzy called “Beatlemania”. Although best known for their rock and roll sound, the group ventured into more complex sounds in the band’s later years as the member’s individual interests delved into psychedelics and Eastern spirituality. The group even changed how the public consumed music, shifting the dominant form from singles to records. Even after the group broke up in 1970, all four core members continued successful solo artist careers.
The Fab Four are undeniably great, and they have the records to back it up. Their words, whether through their lyrics or through interviews, still make an impact and are a source of inspiration for many. Read this curated collection of Beatles quotes and follow their groove.
