    Not sure how insecure you have to be to ink yourself with a reassurance that you're the greatest ever, but here it is:

    Not sure using sales and chart performance is how I'd argue The Beatles are better than Drake but y'know. Guy's obviously an egomaniacal bellend

    Well, they wrote the overwhelming majority of their hits for starters and good though Drake is, I doubt his songs would prove such popular singalongs right across the globe for all ages.

    The film "yesterday" should have had a scene with drake at a tattoo removal place saying to the consultant "i haven't got a fucking clue mate".

    Oh, I agree. It's the Tweeter's methodology I take issue with. Hits and record sales puts Celine Dion and One Direction above Tom Waits and Leatherface.

    If Lennon was alive today, he'd probably be collaborating with Drake

    Wait. He gets a tattoo of himself as a Lollypop man and peeps think he's getting all 'I'm better than the Beetles'?!

    He'd be doing the soundtrack to the latest Disney re-boot, more likely.

    Yeah, because egotistical bragging from a multi millionaire about personal success is what it's really all about!

    And why not lob in a bit of ageism when you're posting about it to wrap it all up?

    Lennon would have hated Drake, and probably much of the rest of popular music.

    It's right and proper that contemporary popular music stars should denigrate the popular music stars of the past tbf. I don't give a shit about Drake but he's honouring a long-standing tradition here.

    editor hiraethified

    Sure. But getting a bragging tattoo to 'prove' some highly debatable point when you're already massively successful and a multi millionaire?
    Nah. It's pathetic.

    It's only older people who elevate the Beatles to God status. Doubt the young give a shit about em.

    He's just having a laugh and taking a pop at the supposed canon. I don't know any Drake songs but I would rather listen to him than the Beatles as he's making new music and is not overplayed.

    At least you've stopped short of calling him uppity.

    Nice little baseless slur at the end there. Great work again.

    So you see why he's done it. To wind people up. It's worked!

    I think you're reading too much into it tbh. It's just standard hip-hop 'Greatest of All Time' braggadocio. The music is built on such outlandish claims.

    editor hiraethified

    Thing is, you couldn't be more wrong. I don't doubt that Drake is more popular with most/some younger people than the Beatles, but the Beatles remain hugely popular across a surprisingly wide age range. Certainly wider than Drake's, I'd suggest.

    If 'winding me up' is coming over as an insulting ageist and posting bollocks, he's done a fantastic job! Glad you're enjoying it.

    Still, their music is old and overplayed, so not so attractive to people seeking new sounds
