Who were truly the kings of pop? Some people say it was The Beatles led by Paul McCartney while others claim that it was Michael Jackson who was truly deserving of the crown. Both were overwhelming pop icons in their own time and any music connoisseur who has their CDs or gets the music channels off satellite television or the internet has heard their music – both are household names, but which was truly the King of Pop?
Why The Beatles were the Kings of Pop
Reaching pop stardom long before MJ, the Beatles were a new wave sensation ushering in an era of pop. You couldn’t walk anywhere in America without seeing their faces and their songs were both infectious and evocative of the kind of charm that can only come from Britain.
Why Michael Jackson was the King of Pop
Say what you want about the man in his later years, but I bet there’s at least one song in his immense repertoire you liked. His hot new moves and his range and diversity of music made him a superstar.
Why they were both the Kings of Pop
You might disagree on who deserves the distinction of King when you can only choose one, but I think we can all agree that both were Kings in their own right. The Beatles were the Kings of Pop when it came to a band and Michael Jackson simply couldn’t be topped when it came to a solo performance.
