That's it right there! I've argued for a long while that the Beatles were as much "experience" and cultural phenom as they were a band. Remove the experience from all things Beatle and they become just another band; make no mistake, a dang fine band, but just another group that rode the wave that was the '60s. The Beatles may have been at the head of that wave but they were far from being the whole thing...
I'm not sure how many here also visit Steve Hoffman's site. It's amusing to imagine the response to this poll over there. You can get banned for suggesting that the Beatles are no longer relevant and that Paul McCartney is not in fact God. You can also forge diamonds in most of their arses but never mind that... The Beatles would win by a landslide and many, many Floyd fans would be ridiculed into submission.
Sorry about the potential thread crap. I voted Pink Floyd cuz it's the right thing to do.
