In 1966 John Lennon did a magazine interview in which he said that the Beatles were more popular than Jesus. He was kind of lamenting the fact that religion had become as much a commodity as rock music, and that as a result a pop group could be more well-known than a nearly 2,000 year old belief system. The point is, he wasn’t exactly happy about it, and so it was therefore a shock when kids began burning Beatles albums in protest.
Times have changed, and the Beatles are no longer as big as they once were. Who is bigger than the Beatles (and therefore Jesus) today?
- The Spice Girls
- SpongeBob SquarePants
- Jesus (pronounced hey-seuss), my neighbor
- Malia Obama
- The next American Idol
- [TIE] Miley Cyrus/Hannah Montana
- The Three Members of The Doors Who Aren’t Jim Morrison
- The guy who wrote “Happy Birthday”
- Pete Best
- The Sneezing Panda
