Who is the biggest of them all? Who is the most famous, iconic, influential, popular? This isn't a thread about who you prefer the most-I'll create another thread for that.
I would argue Elvis isn't that popular of a singer today especially in comparison to other ones-I know way more Michael Jackson or Beatles fans than people who consider themselves Elvis fans (but he's definitely more popular than very outdated singers like Madonna-no question). That doesn't make him any less famous, iconic, or influential-and you could argue it doesn't make him any less big of an artist
There are a lot of people who think Elvis is more iconic and famous than Michael Jackson. I agree with that to an extent, because a lot of Jackson's iconic status and fame is because of his weirdness-plastic surgery, legal troubles, odd behavior, etc.
Elvis has many fans in Europe and Australia and even in places like Asia, but he didn't tour the world like The Beatles and Michael Jackson did, and I don't think he's as famous in other countries as the Beatles and Jackson. Many people view Michael Jackson as the biggest entertainer ever. But you could also argue the Beatles were bigger, since they had more top songs than Jackson, among other reasons.
The Beatles Are Orignal and Unique
Dancing is nothing new there are a lot of great dancers and with time anyone can be a good dancer but nobody can learn to be a genius songwriter. There are lots of people who dance great but how many wrote songs like Across the Universe, Blackbird, Hey Jude, In My Life. I could go on and on.
The Beatles Revolutionised Social Culture
The Beatles defined an entire era in social culture. Elvis was a rockstar but what more? His ideals were never expressed and shared with the world. Michael Jackson was removed from reality. Nobody really knew him, he lived an eccentric life and kept himself separate from society. How did MJ change society?
The Beatles Sold the Most Records
They are a little ahead of Elvis in total sales, but miles ahead of MJ.
