Where are those post quality restrictions at when you need them?

It's perfectly understandable to not like the Beatles' music.  And I don't understand the mobs of screaming girls at the concerts drowning out the music either.  But there are certain things that just can't be denied.

For one thing, pretty much every album had multiple chart-topping hits.  How many other bands could you say that about?  You might not be as crazy about the songs as everyone else apparently was, but you must admit that the Beatles consistently made music that a lot of people really liked for a good number of years.  Play any track from any Beatles album, and I'd say there's more than a 50% chance it's a well-known song—something I don't think I could claim about any other band.

And then there's the number of other artists, from multiple genres, who have publicly stated that the Beatles were a big influence on their own development as musicians.  Again, you might think their music isn't worth all the hype, but its influence in the world of popular music has been deep and far-reaching.

Especially for those two reasons, I think the Beatles are properly rated.

I think we're in agreement (the intent of "+0": they are properly rated as one of the most important artists in rock and no adjustment is needed).

Early Beatles was really poppy, though you could still see the songwriting talent there. And later Beatles... hard to believe "I am the Walrus", "Happiness is a Warm Gun", and "I Want You (She's so Heavy)" is from the same band as "I Wanna Hold Your Hand". They really bucked the trend as artists who got more interesting as time went on.
