The Beatles' musical style was rooted in 1950s rock 'n' roll, later exploring rockabilly, folk, and Indian music.
Their clothes, hairstyles, statements, and even their instruments made them trend-setters from the 1960s to this day.
They have sold more albums than any other band in history - in excess of 1,010,000,000 units.
The songwriting duo of Lennon/McCartney is one of the most respected creative forces of the 20th Century.
They released an astonishing twelve studio albums from 1963 - 1970, including the classics 'Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band' and 'Revolver'.
