Want to know why the Beatles are widely regarded as the greatest music act that ever was? Well you could say it's because they are the highest selling band in the US (over 177 million sales), or because they have more number one albums in the UK and have sold more singles. They have the most number one's on Billboards Hot 100, they have received 10 Grammy Awards, the are rated as the best selling band in history and in 2004, Rolling Stone Magazine rated the Beatles as the greatest artist of all time.
But if that's not enough, here is a fact that no other artist has ever achieved. On April 4, 1964, the Beatles held all top 5 positions on the US Billboard charts. They were;
1. Can't Buy Me Love
2. Twist And Shout
3. She Loves You
4. I Want To Hold Your Hand
5. Please Please Me
They also had another 7 songs in the top 100.
It is also unlikely that any artist will ever again repeat this feat.
