It's no secret that the Beatles' music had a huge influence on rock music as a whole. With each passing release, the band took the rock genre in bold new directions from folk rock to psychedelic rock to even progressive rock. That being said, the Beatles could also get incredibly nasty on their recordings.
While the band may be known for the great love songs they have written throughout their career, each of the band's eras had songs that hit with an unstoppable musical force. Whether it was in their Cavern-club early days or their late-period masterpieces, there was a good chance you could find a song that stood out among the rest when it came to raw aggression.
It was these songs that helped the group invent some of the more forceful music to come, from heavy metal to prog to punk rock. Whether it be through happy accident, drug influence, or by design, the Beatles' knack for coming up with driving hard rock tunes made them one notch above the rest of the British Invasion bands of the era. If you're in the mood for some more hard rock brilliance, then let me take you down, cause that's where I'm going to...
I'm just a junkie for all things media. Whether it's music, movies, TV, or just other reviews, I absolutely adore this stuff. But music was my first love, and I love having the opportunity to share it with you good people.
