A lot of people think Yoko Ono broke up The Beatles, but after watching a butt load of 1970’s interviews from John, George, and Ringo (god bless YouTube) I’ve come to the conclusion that it was Paul that broke the band up. After years of telling them what to play and how to play it, the other dudes couldn’t stand Paul anymore and got fed up. John had quit the band in 1969 but kept quiet about it at Paul’s request. Then a few months later in a total dick move, Paul, after recording his solo album, announces publicly that he is quitting The Beatles – like it was his idea (and to help the sales of his new record). Whatta d-bag!
There are 4 divisions for the songs:
DIVISION 1: The Clean Cut Years
These are songs from the first 3 Beatles albums –Please Please Me, With The Beatles, and Hard Days Night.
DIVISION 2: The Shaggy Years
These are songs from the next 3 Beatles albums –Beatles For Sale, Help, and Rubber Soul
DIVISION 3: The Mustache Years
These are songs from the middle 3 Beatles albums – Revolver, Sgt Peppers, and Magical Mystery Tour
DIVISION 4: The Beard Years
These are songs from the last 3 Beatles albums – The Beatles (The White Album), Abbey Road, and Let It Be
After each Division crowns one song as the winner, those songs will battle each other in the final fight to determine which Beatles song is the BEST! Enough talk, let’s get to the battles!

Damn. Never realized McCartney was such a dick.
If telling John & George “what to to play and how to play it” got them off their bitter, stoned, burned-out asses to produce Abbey Road, then I say it was well worth it. To say Paul “broke up the Beatles” is an egregious falsehood. It was J & G’s total disinterest in continuing the band that really did it.
Using the break-up to promote his solo album? Yeah, dick move. Let he who has never made a dick move cast the first stone. Then he then had to be the public face of the break-up for the next several years while the various lawsuits flew back and forth to dissipate the band’s multimillion dollar business contrasts and get their assets out of receivership. Paul was painted as the villain for instigating the lawsuits, but there was no other way for them to free up their hard-earned fortunes. Even the other three admitted that was the case.
In short, you were a little hard on the Cute One, bro.
John and George were bitter, stoned, and burnt out because they had to play in a band with a dick.
