As most of the current polls seemed to be pitting bands against unlikely opponents, I thought I do one myself:
 
The Beatles Versus Genesis!

The Beeeeeeeeatles, but Genesis made me pause to consider first. Trespass, Foxtrot, and Selling England are just that good. Of course the Fab Four will win, but not without a fight.

Okay, these are my top two but Beatles will never be moved out of first place. It was the first rock I ever listened to and as others have said, without The Beatles there is no Genesis.

The Beatles. Simply too much history to ignore.

the Beatles are incredibly important.
But Genesis are more important to me personally,

Looks like we're really going to put some stress on the famous PA 'Genesis wins every poll' principle.

No one, not even Leon Spinks, beats the Beatles.

Genesis

The Beatles were important, but so were other 60's rock bands. I would also like to point out that genesis made "real" concept albums.

Does The White Album win absolute here? I'm still looking forward to ordering it, considering what I've read here this Beatles album is amongst their best ever done, a 'must have' (prog?) rock album.
 
The Beatles forever reign over Genesis of course.

It is The Beatles most diverse album, and my favorite. The acoustic tracks in particular are great; in fact, there are so many great acoustic numbers on this album, it could rank high in that category alone. Beyond that, Helter Skelter (Beatle Metal Wink), Piggies (Baroque), Back in the U.S.S.R. (the greatest Beach Boy parody of all time), and Cry Baby Cry are personal favorites. As far as being "prog",  I would say rather that it is their most experimental yet earthy album.

This is cruel...there are only 4 prog bands I would say are as good as the Beatles. Lucky for Genesis, they're one of them What can I say, I know what I like, and I like what I know

Beatles gets my vote, they were the first experimenting with many music styles and instruments plus they released the track I hate the most called number 9, (it sticks for days in my mind) who does that?
