The Beatles were known for the influence they had on the female folks, but The Stones dominated the male folks. They were known as the rugged stones and where the anti-Beatles. The stones were renowned for their dirty, sexy rock and roll which is heavily inspired by the American R&B. unlike the Beatles who are always dressed in matching suits and mop-top haircuts with fancy English accents, The Stones where the dangerous version with rough and masculine acts like Mick Jagger, Brian Jones, and Keith Richards. The girls loved the Beatles, but the guys preferred The Stones. They delivered hits after hits until the late 80s when the band started declining.
