But this will all go right over Heycal's head!
Wait, let me get this straight: You're one trumpeting AC/DC and talking about how groups like Radiohead and the Chili Peppers are better than the Beatles and the Stones, and I'm the guy whose in over his head and out of his depth?

Once again, there is really little debate about this in serious circles. Only contrarians or imbeciles would argue that the Beatles and Stones aren't the cream of the crop. Which group do you fall into?

Perhaps because it's well-known that that era produced the best music? Doesn't seem surprising to me.
