Best Answer

The Beatles were very influential to 60s music. They ushered in a new sound, which was more bold and brash than the American music at that time. As they grew as songwriters and performers, they inspired their peer musicians at that time to write better songs. The Beatles were always entertaining. Even their early songs bear a certain charm. As they grew musically and lyrically, they inspired many groups that followed in songwriting, instrumentation and styles. There are untold numbers of musicians and bands who admit to being influenced by the Beatles. Some are still being influenced today. They were also the most successful of the 60s groups.
