    Didn't John Lennon once claim the Beatles were bigger than Jesus?

    That's what's great about pop stars: chutzpah

    Not sure how it can be 'overplayed' in an age of streaming, but you're still wrong. To young people, the Beatles can be 'new' music.

    Is there a point to this statement of the obvious?

    Overplayed as in all over popular culture. I don't ever need to hear a Beatles song again. Familiarity breeds contempt.

    That there is a long tradition in popular music of ego-maniac multimillionaires making claims about their relative worth.

    Did he tattoo it on his arm?

    Didn’t John Lennon have a separate air conditioned apartment in New York for all his fur coats? Tres bling.

    I don’t know. Possibly he did. Possibly there is another tradition in popular music of bellends getting rubbish tattoos and this is where the two streams meet.

    I believe Chuck Berry admonished Beethoven that his time had passed also.

    You should thank me for keeping it going, tbh.

    Did he get a tattoo of it? Did he? Well did he?

    Otherwise you are out of bounds on this insanely specific topic of conversation, sir!

    Fleetwod Mac seem to have outlasted the Reynolds Girls in popular memory, but fair play to them for giving it a crack.

    Ah the expert on youth culture speaks again! Now what were you saying about young people not enjoying the Beatles?

    In what aread does drake claim to be ahead of the Beatles in?

    Fleetwood Mac are massively popular now.

    I guess you don't go to many acoustic jams or whatever, but you'll find a plentiful supply of musicians and singers under 30 who will all happily play along to multiple Beatles tunes. And the Mac too. The music of both bands still gives great joy to people of all ages.

    But anyway. Jesus and fur coats.

    Sure, I love Fleetwood Mac. I don't even mind the Beatles these days, I'm much more likely to listen to one of their songs than a Drake record truth be told. But I also think it's fine for pop stars to do what pop stars have done since pop stars existed, which is to dunk on the the stars of the past, whether in song, in comments to the press, on t-shirts or even in the medium of a tattoo. It's just what pop stars do.

    Apparently Elvis was a hero to most.

    I take it this isn't Nick Drake ?
    Well it can't be because he died tragically young in 1974.

    I didn't say that. But it is relevant to mention other silly things that egotistical pop stars do to big up themselves

    Outrageous. Surely no-one can deny the sheer musicianship that went in to making dark side of the moon?? :mad:

    Well, Drake obviously does.

    That "make your pussy whistle" line is fucking hilarious. It sounds like something Jay from the In Betweeners would say.

    I prefer it when they dunk on present ones. I love a bit of current events beef.

    For example:
