Ah, but doesn't my bold highlight of the quote and his use of a full stop, mean i was talking about the other sentence, that actually isn't one..

Now we can stop.

Mitch Mitchells, Buddy Rich, and John Bonham did the most for Ludwig. Then shortly followed by Ringo Alex Van Halen and many others.

Hey hey hey. Don't bash Korn. As much as you don't like them, it doesn't have to be shown that way.

I could say right now The Beatles are garbage. And how would you react to that? Same way a Korn fan would if you said Korn's music isn't music and is paint-by-numbers angsty mainstream garbage. It's music and people like it. No need to bash other bands because you don't like them.

Opinions are often wrong ;) Of course Ringo did more for Ludwig than Buddy or any of the other players you name - he had by far the greater public profile, being the most famous drummer of all time etc.

It's very true-- The Beatles were world-famous and so popular, and the image of Ringo keeping time behind those black oyster ludwigs was seen by so many people that it overshadowed the popularity of other drummers.

Well yes, you are right we're all made up of the same molecules as garbage. If you read the great work by Sparticus Calculhetti, 'Beatles or Korn:The question of whether we are all garbage or all return to garbage before (or after) The Rolling Stones' you'll easily understand where I'm coming from.

Interestingly Sparticus Calculhetti left a life of academia and became a corn farmer in Kent, took up drumming and discovered amazing things about the sex life of the singing scouse beatle.

Honest....I read it......there's lots about it on Wikipedia!!!

Usually, I would take your stance. Music is music and different tunes reach different people, fine. But Korn and all bands like them, are just plain ridiculous.

Score Update:

Beatles: 5 drummers (Pete, Ringo, John, Paul, Bernard).
Korn: 4 drummers ( David, Terry, Ray, Joey).

Beatles are ahead.
I heard that Lennon was asked if he considered Ringo the best drummer he had played with and Lennon said that he wasn't even the best drummer in the Beatles.

Lennon humour I am sure but McCartney did play drums on many tracks, Ringo was not keen on showing up for some of the White Album sessions, however The Beatles would not have been The Beatles without Ringo, it was kismet. The Beatles have more in common with Buddy Holly and The Everly Brothers than Korn.

There's no 'opinion' about it. Ringo did the most for Ludwig. After their appearance of the Ed Sullivan show, sales of Ludwig drums skyrocketed. There is NO opinion - Ringo is and always will be one of the most influential drummers of the 20th century. No opinion there - just fact.

This is like comparing apples to potatoe chips

Beatles: Much better song writing and composition, way better vocals.

Korn: Better chops drumwise (first album had some very cool drumming) musically gets a little wankerish and repetitive

Beatles win by a landslide

The original question, Who is better, doesn't answer "who do you Like more."
One could like Korn better and realize that The Beatles musically were better.
These types of dialogs usually end up with all opinion of course and no real answer or importance. Being biased as I am though, I would say that when Korn has 21 number one songs, as do the Beatles, and have the international acclaim that the Beatles have enjoyed for 40 years, and have sold as many albums that the Beatles have, then you and I can discuss this again. Till then sell, sell, sell.

Well, I think that's (in part - although I can't be sure...he seems kinda slow) what the original poster was getting at....

On the one hand, you have the band that INVENTED the concept of a pop "rock" band,
on the other, you have the band that, for the most part, RE-invented the pop "rock" band in a way that brought several styles together and spawned MANY more. Korn isn't really "rap-metal"....I personally think that's the dumbest term ever used to describe music and still for the life of me CANNOT figure out where it came from or wtf it means. Those two do NOT mix, no matter what. Rap is rap and metal is metal.

I wouldn't say one is better than the other, because neither of them really have that great of an influence on me or anything I like, but in their own separate ways, they've both achieved quite alot throughout music history.

Although I don't really listen to the Beatles because I'm not into their music at all, I at least respect them for what they've done for music in general.

Korn is an embarrassment. They are the poster children of the nu-"metal" fad, paving the way for such intelligence-insulting acts like Limp Bizkit *cringe*, POD and Puddle of Mudd, among countless others. It's not even music--unless you can call a turd plopping into the toilet "music." Thank God real metal acts began coming back in the early 2000's, or I'd probably be listening to emo right now (lol).
