    Talk about comparing burgers and tacos.

    Edit: I went to my itouch for the answer. I have both artist's entire collection, but only selected songs on the itouch. I have by far more Beatles songs than AC/DC. So Beatles win.

    But a better comparison would have been Beatles and Rolling Stones.

    Spiderus is more awesome than ever before for mentioning 'Back in Black'. Ultimate party album of the Seventies - possibly the purest distillation of hard rock evar.

    A lot of people thought AC/DC would die with Bon Scott. Boy, were they SO WRONG.

    Back in Black was released in 1980. But yeah, AC/DC's zenith. It was all downhill from there.

    This is like comparing a gourmet meal with french fries. Ac/DC has been recycling the same 5 chords and two drum patterns for about 30 years. The Beatles did more in their <10 years than AC/DC can dream of. This poll even existing is an insult to right-thinking music lovers.

    I would pick almost any band over the "Bealtes". Seriously,I don't like the Beatles' music at all,maybe one or two songs are OK,wheareas on the other hand,I like th AC/DC albums up until they started being a parody of themselves.

    Disclaimer: No doubt someone on here is going to give me a lecture on how great the Beatles were,how much they changed music,blah blah blah. I don't deny their impotance or influence,I just personally would never,ever purposefully play one of their CDs. It just isn't my thing.

    I dig heavy stufs like AC/DC but I'll always have a soft spot for The Beatles. (but somehow I prefer them in their long haired hippy period days :p )

    Yep this comparison would've been more apt.

    this comparison makes no sense at all. at least pick two bands that make some sort of logical sense in their comparison, like ac/dc and kiss or something.

    As much as I like AC/DC, the Beatles are on a whole different level of greatness. No contest.

    Agreed.

    The Beatles.

    I can't stand AC/DC and (PARTICULARLY) Angus Young's repetitive stage antics. I mean, WTF, are you epileptic?

    I actually laughed out loud when I saw the thread title but stopped when I figured the original poster was being serious.

    I'm considering voting for AC/DC just to fuck up this poll :lol
