    • So far every song of theirs has been covered- some more than others but I am sure there is no other rock group or artist who can say that…

    • Once again, this goes to show the incredible influence The Beatles have had. It had not occurred to me how covers are a great way to illustrate this fact. While I don’t have the stats to prove it, I bet The Rolling Stones have been covered far less, even though they’s been around for close to 60 years, more than six times as long as The Beatles.
