The Beatles. Who?

Pretty much the sentiment that my roommate has. WHAT THE FUCK! How can you not know who the Beatles are? They practically invented rock(aside from Elvis, Buddy Holly, and Rolling Stones...oh and the Animals) but they are the most influential artists out there! Songwriting was changed forever because of these guys. I mean, seriously. Just because you don't listen directly to them doesn't make that an excuse. I used to not like them(I know, blasphemy) but fuck. I was watching the Powerpuff Girls and knew they were mocking the Beatles in "The Beat-Alls."(FYI, I watched that lately, and shit, SOOO many more references than I thought.). Like, SHIT! This angers me. Not knowing who the Beatles are, it's like not knowing the first President. Though I seem to remember having to tell her who that is. Like, fuck. Learn some history, people. The Beatles should be taught to everyone. Even if you don't like them or listen to them, you have to know them!!!

that's kind of weird that she doesn't know who they aer. i mean basicaly everyone knows who they are even if you don't listen to them. it's like a point to be made that everyone at least knows who they are.
your roommate has problems.

I don't get how anyone could not know who the Beatles are, but actually, most people don't know who the first president was because it wasn't actually George Washington. Well, I guess not, 'cause this is mainly a myth, but it was John Hanson, who was the first president under the Articles of Confederation. Later, George Washington was elected the first president of the U.S. under the Constitution.

Anyway, sorry about the random U.S. history lesson. LOL.
