History The Beatles were an English rock band formed in Liverpool in 1960. Their best-known lineup, consisting of John Lennon, Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr, became considered by many as the greatest and most influential act of the rock era. Rooted in skiffle and 1950s rock and roll, the Beatles later utilized several genres, ranging from pop ballads to psychedelic rock, often incorporating classical elements in innovative ways. In the early 1960s, their enormous popularity first emerged as "Beatlemania", but as their songwriting grew in sophistication, they came to be perceived by fans and cultural observers as an embodiment of the ideals shared by the era's sociocultural revolutions.
Interesting facts The Beatles' "Here Comes the Sun" was almost put on the Voyager Golden Records and sent out to space, but EMI refused to release the rights. The Beatles once bought a private island with plans to all live together in peace away from screaming fans, but later sold it as they were breaking up. The Beatles wanted to star in a film version of the Lord of the Rings. They wanted Stanley Kubrick to direct. The Beatles were rejected by Decca Records in 1961, less than a year before Beatlemania swept the UK. "Yesterday" by the Beatles has been covered over 1,600 times. None of The Beatles could read music.

Conclusions I would also say about breaking up of this band, about John Lennon’s death and other bad things but I don’t want, let it end on good note.
