None of the above listed. Theodor W. Adorno was the brains behind the 'Beatles' as he held the rights to the music and eventually his estate sold those rights to Michael Jackson.
 
Adorno a classical musician wrote their music and it was all filtered down through Paul who could not read a note of music by the way. In fact the only half way real musician in the band was George Harrison. John was a poet who could strum a few chords and Ringo a hack drummer at best. George often wondered why they never wanted to use his songs. Oh and as an aside, Paul ended up being Knighted, and you don't get Knighted unless you have done as you were told and made your masters proud.

The Beatles were introduced to the public as a means to spread youth culture which led to the spreading of the 'New Age' culture and this was all geared to setting up a nylistic culture that is all to present today. It's called divide and conquer but this gets into a whole different 'Pandora's Box' if you will. Things are not what they seem.

Since Harrison has no votes, I'll be the first to give him one.

Lennon or McCartney could also be cited as The Beatles' brain.

George Martin had a huge role, although it has to be said the other 4 did have a bit of talent here and there. He did play a large part in translating the writers' basic ideas into the works of musical genius that they became.

The truth often comes as a surprise to the majority but to the few it just makes sense.............hell, you could run polls here asking who was the better musician between say Beethoven and Lennon and I'm guessing Lennon might even win. Our cutlure is created and the people who create it know what they are doing, much as religion was used long ago to keep the King in control.

Ah that explains it all.  Yet another vast conspiracy.  Wonder who put this particular one together?  Ya gotta admit, it's highly suspect that The Beatles landed in America not shortly after the JFK assassination.  Didn't see CIA option in the poll...

I've got to second your thoughts about the Beatles. Sorry fans.

It's not a conspiracy at all, it's the way the people who run the planet have run things for thousands of years. The term 'conspiracy' was coined to make it look like the majority are the ones who know. When in fact common sense will tell you that that is is impossible.

the beatles are an invention of the media, they never actually existed.  all the music attributed to them was actually produced by neil armstrong while he was supposedly training to, and then going to, the moon.  that being said, "the beatles" only released a few good songs anyway.

Think of Plato's cave and the guy that got out and came back to tell the others that the world was not as they thought. He was threatened with his life because the others that were stuck in the cave did not want their version of reality destroyed.
 
The same thing will be true in this age as well and no tin foil hat analogy will ever help you aside from maybe keeping the rain off of your head.
