    1. Why the frack should they have to? I’m a black Canadian male of 43 and I’ve loved the Beatles since I was 12, but I don’t want to force young kids to have to listen to the Beatles if they don’t want to, or even like them.

  1. Pretty sad. Although I couldn’t tell you much about bands that broke up 20 years before I was born, this is the Freakin’ BEATLES, not Gene Vincent and the Blue Caps.

  2. Bingo, Bango, Bongo and Irving! Oh wait, those were the Mosquitos on Gilligan’s Island! (I’ve had that useless information in my head for decades. I share it with all of you for free!)

    1. So it’s important to know all about every band you dislike? If she doesn’t like the way it sounds, then I think that’s enough. I don’t understand why people got so upset when young people aren’t knowledgable about the pop culture of the older folks’ youth. When you guys were all in high school, how much did you know about music from 40 or 50 years earlier?

    2. No, I’m guessing that she has the right to hate what she wants to and like what she wants to, and she hates the Beatles. It’s as simple as that.

  3. What exactly is the point of singling out people of color for not knowing who the Beatles are? Sure, it might seem humorous at first glance, but it’s actually discomforting that someone would go through so much effort to document this on film, edit a video and post it online. And I imagine the only people to defend such a thing would be people in positions of power, very much unlike the majority of those shown in the video.

    1. Got to agree…this is stupid…I’m 50…if somebody threw a microphone in my face, I couldn’t tell you who the biggest hip hop/rap stars are nowadays…are RunDMC still big?!
