Why were/are the Beatles so popular?

I’ve seen the old footage, the screaming girls and all of that stuff.

I’ve heard their noises and frankly I’m still completely underwhelmed by it and can’t see anything worth buying. “She loves you ya ya ya” doesn’t do a thing for me.

So what is it about the Beatles which made young girls go mad and a whole generation lose their minds?

Dear old Grand dad told me when I was young" if they had come over eating horse poo there wouldn't be a pile to be found" That brings back memories!!!

Marketing.

I've never figured that out either. But then there are a few others I'm not quite understanding how they got to where they got.

I never liked the Beatles. I never screamed like that at a concert either. Stevie Nicks, Reba, Charlie McClain, Martina...nope, treated them with all due respect.

I feel like the Beatles should use the Me Too list of all those women that objectified them way back then. And those poor guys that got chili bowl haircuts to attract women were so misguided lol.

It was a new generation of kids going from the standard be bop tunes to something new they felt only they identified with. Sort of like a cult I suppose. I didn't care for the Beatles when I was younger; now I have grown to appreciate their talents and breaking down how they wrote their music.
I would not want to go to a concert where the crowds drowned out the band.

New different. The Beatles were new. They were young girls. Some young girls scream.
