From The Beatles to BTS: The Evolution Of Boy Bands Over The Decades

    Comparing the Beatles to BTS isn’t fair to the Beatles. They actually played instruments. And there were only 4 of them. When our parents went to go see bands such as the Beatles, the Monkees, etc. as you have mentioned, there were no backing tracks. It was what you see is what you get: music being made right there and then.

    It baffles me how BTS is considered a “band” when there are 7 of them and they’re all singers. This is comparable to a sports team where every member of the team plays the same position. None of them play instruments and they don’t even do all their own songwriting. They use computers to make their music. At what point in time did this become the norm, and why?

    And no, I am not a racist. Race has nothing to do with it. I just have a whole lot more respect for the Beatles for actually playing instruments. Anyone can make music on a computer, but being able to play an instrument (well) takes years and years of practice and dedication.

    Not to undermine what they’ve accomplished and the barriers they’ve broken as a Korean group in a world obsessed with American music, but I find it funny how the letters “BTS” is literally a condensed form of the word “BEATLES,” reflecting how today’s boy band is far inferior than the original.
