For a minute, let’s try to forget 40+ years of sheer iconography.

Despite being the greatest of all rock bands, The Beatles have, upon close scrutiny, one of the worst/lamest names in the annals of popular music. We don’t dig the pun.

The Rolling Stones, The Who, The Clash, Led Zeppelin and Black Sabbath may all fall short of the Fab Four’s musical accomplishments and lasting influence, but their names manage to communicate the very essence of rock ‘n roll. In comparison “The Beatles” is kinda just….. dumb.

For today, play revisionist historian and give the greatest of all rock band a name befitting their genius and influence.

Rename the The Beatles, and send us the result:
