You don’t like: Come Together, Yesterday, I Want You(she’s so heavy), Here Comes the Sun, Hey Jude, etc? I mean yeah they’re overhyped but I like them.
I actually like MJ’s rendition of Come Together more than the original! Not because it’s MJ, but because it had a little more, idk, ~roughness~, to it. As for the other songs, I’m pretty underwhelmed by them. I don’t tread on anyone else’s right to like them, but I personally can do without them.

They can’t sing, they imitate black folk and they were hideous #0appeal
I think the whole swagger jacking thing is one issue that keeps me from liking a lot of 50s/60s-era white bands, although if I just don’t like your music, I don’t like your music.
I used to be somewhat fond of Elvis until I found out he got ALL the credit for “Hound Dog” and while I’m not sure whether he actually mentioned, “Hey! This isn’t my song! You have Big Mama Thorton to thank!”, I have a feeling that he didn’t because you still have people thinking that he was the first person to originally record it.
But let it be known that most of my BLEH-ness toward the Beatles mostly comes from the fact that their music really doesn’t make a connection with me!
