the beatles

Reactions: 













all these years, it never occurred to me that the name the beatles was a pun. i'm slow, i guess. thanks to JJ from planckstudios for the submission!

It was also in 1960 that the Stu suggested a new name for the band. In honor of Buddy Holly's band, the Crickets, -- of whom Stu was a huge fan -- he recommended the name of "The Beetles." John changed the spelling of the name to "Beatles" as a pun for "beat music," another name for rock 'n' roll.
