Tenacious D: The Beatles Tribute

Whilst on the topic of The Beatles, Tenacious D have returned to the rambunctious escapades of their lyrical ingenuity and musicality with their cover of You Never Give Me Money / The End by The Beatles. Fun and simply stupid in all the right places, it’s a fantastic depiction of the terrible twosome who make fantastically hilarious music, and a fantastic little nod to one of the greatest bands in the world that ever decided to pick up their guitars and start playing music.

If you grab a couple minutes, I implore you to have a watch and a listen, it’ll be sure to crack up a smile on your weekend.

Thanks folks, do enjoy the rest of your Sunday.

Are The Beatles Overrated?

This is a common choice of topic that keeps cropping up among my group of friends. Many believe that their worth, musicality, popularity and overall God-like aura are simply exaggerated, and over-simplified. Question is – is this true? Love Me DO or love me DON’T: Are The Beatles overrated?

50 years on, they are quite possibly still the most popular, most loved and notorious band to ever grace our stages, cameras and earholes of music. Quite rightly too – known for their music inventions in songwriting, their commercial success is next to none, becoming the best sold group than any other in just a short span of 13 years of recording thirteen studio albums.

But, whether the bands’ reputation precedes them, or simply their music doesn’t do it for you, let me know your thoughts on the Liverpudlian legends.
