Opening round match up featuring #1 seed The Beatles vs. #64 seed Bon Jovi. It's going to be an up hill battle for any band having to face off vs The Lads From Liverpool. Voting ends Tues at 8pm est.
4 lads that changed the world. John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr are perhaps the most famous musicians worldwide. The Beatles transcended rock and roll and became rock gods. The Beatles were formed in the late 50s and cut their teeth playing nightclubs in Hamburg, Germany. The Beatles arrived in America in 1964, debuted on the Ed Sullivan show amidst what is now called “Beatlemania”. The Beatles sound changed from album to album, and they dabbled in a bit of every genre of music. The Beatles were, by most definitions, the biggest musical act of the twentieth century, charting more than fifty top 40 hit singles in the ten years they were together and twenty-seven #1 hits in the USA & UK alone. EMI estimated that by 1985, the band had sold over one billion records worldwide. Their ballad Yesterday (written by McCartney) may be the most-covered song in the history of recorded music (about 3,000 versions of it exist). Hit singles include "Penny Lane", "Help!", "Hey Jude", "Hard Day's Night", "Let It Be" and many, many more.
Bon Jovi is an American rock music band from New Jersey. Fronted by lead singer and namesake Jon Bon Jovi, the group originally achieved large-scale success in the 1980s. Bon Jovi has proved far more durable than most 80s "hair metal" groups, blending elements of hard rock, heartland rock, and the "MTV Unplugged" style together to sustain a creative and commercially successful career well into the 2000s. Bon Jovi has sold more than 33 million albums in the United States and over 100 million albums worldwide. Hit singles include "Runaway," "Livin' On a Prayer," "You Give Love a Bad Name," "I'll Be There for You," "Never Say Goodbye," "Bad Medicine," "Lay Your Hands on Me" and "Wanted Dead or Alive."
