Two members   on the SH music forums did a very good job of debunking an ignorant guy who said he prefers The Stones because they have never been called a boy band so he thinks their better.member Skywheel so accurately said to him,The Beatles have never been referred to as a boy band by anyone who grasps the common definition of a ”boy band” and he said in parenthesis ( a group you have eliminated yourself from) therefore your point is invalid, Rejected Next. Member AFOS, said to him,Yeah typical put down and a 100% wrong Beatles were an organic rock band The Monkees are the proto boy band.
