Beatles vs. Stones

People have kicked around Beatles vs. Stones arguments since the dawn of the discourse. This podcast takes that conversation to its logical conclusion, even if it means grinding it into dust. Hosts Justin Cox and Ryan Page pit years’ worth of Beatles and Rolling Stones records against each other, one year at a time, starting in ’64 and ending in ’74. We’ll trade off defending bands from one week to another, threading a needle between friendly conversation and hardline debate, featuring pop-ins from guests. The Beatles put out Abbey Road 1969 and the Rolling Stones put out Let it Bleed. Who had a better year? Subscribe to this podcast to throw yourself down that hellhole of a debate. Proud part of Pantheon - the podcast network for music lovers.


episode 8: 1970: Ex-Beatle Mania, featuring Christian Swain

Justin Cox and Ryan Page look at 1970, when the Beatles released Let it Be (and every member releases a solo album) and the Rolling Stones released the live album Get Yer Ya-Yas Out. Justin reps The Beatles and Ryan reps the Stones this week. Note: Justin’s audio has a fuzzed-out John Lennon quality to it on this episode. Sorry for the inconvenience.

Beatles: Let it Be, McCartney, All Things Must Pass, Plastic Ono Band, Sentimental Journey, Beaucoups of Blues

Stones: Get Yer Ya-Yas Out 

 Around the 46:00 mark, Christian Swain, host of the Rock & Roll Archeology Podcast and CEO of Pantheon Podcasts, joins us to spike this Beatles-heavy episode with some more Stones. Justin and Ryan pick back up around 55:30. Subscribe to the show and share it with your friends. Beatles vs. Stones is proudly part of the Pantheon Podcast Network.
