That's not controversial at all.

It's commonly held opinion, and very much true at that.

The Fab Four were not Fab at all. They're overrated.
On the whole, I'd rather be in Wallenpaupack.

Fine! This is much nearer to the truth, and it will satisfy the most distinguished BCB'ers with their supremely refined tastes.

Well done.

Rock music was just a big cul-de-sac that never would have gone on as long if not for The Baby Boom. It'll be a footnote in another 15 years. No amount of self-aggrandizing Long Live Rock songs can change this.
Let U be the set of all united sets, K be the set of the kids and D be the set of things divided.
Then it follows that ∀ k ∈ K: K ∈ U ⇒ k ∉ D

I'd say so, but only one much. Both classic singles bands essentially, and NO had more of them simply by lasting longer.

True.

Next to no Melody, tediously relentless beat, repetitive lyrics.
