The Beatles What was so special about them?
Some people think they changed the sound of pop music, because they were the first British band to write their own songs and music.

Before them, most bands and singers had songs written for them.

They are also said to have been the first real "boy-band" pin-ups. Hysterical fans followed them everywhere they performed and Beatle-mania ruled all over the world.
