Which was most influential

The Beatles or Elvis Presley. Debergs prog rock thread started me thinking and I thought it was a fairly easy choice until I talked to a few others about it and looked up some numbers. Now it seems like a toss up... although I know what my original gut feeling was.

The Beatles...
Best selling band in history... roughly 1 billion 600 million units sold
22 #1 singles world wide
7 grammys
10 films

Elvis Presley
Best selling solo act in history... roughly 1 billion 600 million units sold
36 #1 singles
3 grammys
33 films

Of course there is plenty of other criteria. What say you though?

Nothing about Rubber Soul was particularly new, Brian just felt it was "complete" so he wanted to make his own complete album with all top quality songs. While accomplishing that he also pushed the envelope in the way music was recorded and layered.

FWIW Nicklebacks first couple albums had some actual writting and some actual meaning to many of their songs. I hate the way they've gone since that too.

Im gonna have to go Beatles with this one. Love me some Elvis, but he didnt really write his songs did he? Plus, if he wouldnt have existed, some other white boy would have brought rythm and blues to the masses eventually.

BTW, this should have been a Beatles Vs. Beach Boys thread since McCartney has stated thats who he felt he was trying to compete with. : )

TBH, though. I'm struggling with gauging Madonna's influence teetering between a mean old white man undervaluing her, and a guilt-laden old white man overvaluing her, all along unable to place myself in the shoes of those of the fairer sex she influenced.

I will admit, their album "the state" was ok. Pretty shitty after that and just down right horrible today with what they put out.
