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.
