Hi everyone, OP here. Never thought this would get posted. I think the worst part of what happened was that only my teacher one fiend and myself seemed to have noticed. We stared at each other in silence for a bit before I asked my teacher if I could go walk it off. He let me.

Wow, what has our world come to?! I get that the Beatles are an older band, but they're perhaps one of the most famous bands throughout the ages.
Yes, well, if you grew up with parents who didn't listen to the Beatles and classmates who didn't wear those "Beatles" shirts, it's entirely possible to have not heard of them. There are a lot of classic bands that people today haven't heard of - same as if you didn't listen to pop music, nobody would fault you for not knowing who Ariana Grande is.
#39 You are exactly proofing my point while trying to proof the opposite. I don't listen to pop music. I don't think I've ever heard a song by Ariana Grande. I have no idea what she even looks like. But I've come across the name before, probably while scimming the news headlines of some website, and I know that she is a musician of some sort. There is no need to be able to identify any Beatles song to know they existed and made music.
Late response - but you kind of proved my point. Ariana is in the news because she's current. If she weren't in the tabloids, would you have heard of her? The Beatles are mentioned, yes, but it's infrequent. They were influential, but they're not all over the news and radio today like they were 50 years ago. I don't really get offended if people don't know bands or singers, so maybe that's just me.
Who ever don't know who the Beatles are needs to fall off the face of the Earth.
i seem to be one of the only people who hates the beatles. oh well. more good music for me
