BBC reports on the greatest rock and roll bands of all time. Not surprisingly, the Beatles place first. But:

“Surprisingly, the finding also illustrates that the Beatles’ popularity among Republicans has plunged over the past decade as a result of the current political climate. Opinions of the group have seen quite the adjustment across all political affiliations.

“In 2018, Democrats reported an increase in favorability – 54 percent like the Beatles “a lot,” compared to 51 percent in 2009. The trend continues with registered independents as 53 percent like them a lot in 2018 compared to 49 percent in 2009. The large change in favorability came from conservatives as Republicans reported that just 40 percent like the Beatles a lot now compared to 50 percent in 2009, resulting in a 10-point drop.”

The amount of music and the number one hits and albums they put out in the short span they did secures first place for them.

what I find fascinating is the right's turn away from them, the Beatles. I am sure this is true of way more than just the Beatles or just music. The wingnuts have become very tribal which of course means rejecting anything not of pure roots.
Really their increased rejection of the Beatles is no different than their increased rejection of Hispanics or gays. Basically a tribe circling. One does this when they feel threatened and vulnerable. They seem to understand this is their last celebration with Trump, that the biopsy has already made clear their fate.

Led Zep bar none. Jimmy Page is the best guitar player on the planet.
