So, I never had a teacher – I just had these Beatles records” (Mastropolo). Even Kurt Cobain, the lead singer of Nirvana, was inspired by The Beatles.

Americans seemed to think very highly of European music even considered it the "real culture" of music. After the Beatles released the albums of Rubber Soul and Revolver was when they began their musical transition and started exploring different areas of music. “On these albums the group moved away from simplicity, experimenting with electronic effects and added instruments in the studio, moving in all kinds of stylistic directions” (GAMMOND 46). On the Beatles first album was a song called “There’s a place” and it was one of there simpler songs compared to “Yellow submarine” on their later album “Revolver”. The whole musical structure between these songs is completely different.
The Beatles and Their Impact The Beatles embodied the 60s, defining the fashion, the music and the overall pop culture that followed the decade. Fronting the British Invasion, their influence can be seen across the globe, especially changing the United States. The band went from a local phenomenon performing in their home of Liverpool, England to becoming the best-selling band in history, now with over 600 million records sold, sparking a musical revolution in the process.1,2 In 1957, at 17 years of age, John Lennon founded his band dubbed “The Quarry Men”, a group that played around Liverpool with no consistent members.3 After hearing 15 year old Paul McCartney playing guitar, John asked him to join the band, until eight months later, George
Using images of car crashes, sports games, newspapers and film icons; his arguably most notable work was that of Marilyn Monroe and although he was enamoured with Hollywood during the fifties, using Marilyn as the subject for his art did not come about until the autumn of 1962. Marilyn died on August 5th earlier that year, Warhol used a publicity photograph from the peak of her career to crop, drawing the viewer’s main attention toward her face, and print on a series of canvases. The chosen image depicted Marilyn within the perfect time and expression. He repeated this image obsessively in Marilyn Diptych (FIG ME), on the left panel he used bright colours yet on the right he used monochromatic shades which convey a similarity to that of a heated printing press that is running out of ink.
Music has been the blood of our pop culture since the first signs of sounds made by our cavemen ancestors. It had been a huge influence in our culture like our lifestyles, fashion, attitudes, and language. But one genre in music has created an impact in our history, especially the American history for it paved way to the Civil Rights movement. It was through combining African American and white music that created a spark in that movement, and without The King none of this spark would have ever light up in the first place. And this “King” is none other than, the king of rock and roll, Elvis Aron Presley.
They did not only affect the rock and roll music but also the fashion and lifestyle . Below are some of the ways the Beatles changed the world as we knew it. HAIR The Beatles haircut, also known as the “mop top”, because of its resemblance to a mop, was world-wide known because of the famous band and was imitated by many adults between 1964 and 1966.

Pritt and Burke obviously considered the colonists’ opposition to taxation by the parliament to be a form of rebellion for having been ignored for hundreds of years. The American colonies had been allowed to govern themselves with interference. Why should they have to be dictated to them now? Why should they have to make payments to a parliament that had nothing to do with them for hundreds years. “England could not afford to be left out of any acquisitions.
The Americans faced taxes such as the Sugar Act, Stamp Act and Townshend Act due to Britain having to make up for the money they had lost to war. The people of America essentially felt that Britain was being unreasonable “for imposing taxes on us without our consent”. The taxes were passed by Parliament in which there were no American representation. This lead to Americans protesting the taxes that lacked representation and the Virginia House of Burgess stating that "the taxation of the people by themselves, or by persons chosen by themselves to represent them... is the only security against a burdensome taxation, and [is] the distinguishing characteristic of British freedom". The Stamp Act caused Americans to protest and refuse to buy or import British goods.
Per John Lennon of The Beatles, Presley influenced him to take up music. In, The Beatles Anthology, Lennon is quoted “When I heard Heartbreak Hotel, it was the end for me. Once I heard it and got into it, that was life, there was no other thing. I thought of nothing else but rock 'n' roll" (11). Elvis Presley impersonators all over the world continue perform his songs so a younger generation can enjoy the music of Elvis Presley.
However, Britain and the United States did not want to take in Jews after escaping Germany. Once the United States was aware that 's when Peter Bergson advertised what was happening through newspapers. This forced Roosevelt to create a government agency to devise ways to rescue European Jewry and the United States reacted. “The establishment of the board did not resolve all the problems blocking American rescue efforts. For example, the War Department repeatedly refused to bomb Nazi concentration camps or the railroads leading to them”(Berman).
Before when The Beatles where still fairly new in the United States the media portrayed them as clean cut British guys who made good music. The medias eye had always been specifically on Paul and John for being the front men of the band, and the media loved them. Towards the end of the 60 's the media started to develop a different view on Paul and John. When Paul was caught with half a pound of Marijuana and sent to jail the media took this event as an opportunity to diminished the image of Paul by basically depicting him of being just a drugged up musician. John on the other hand was being spied on by the FBI.
