beatles or stones

The Beatles rescued Western music:

I am he as you are he as you are me and we are all together. 
See how they run like pigs from a gun, see how they fly. 
I'm crying. 
Sitting on a cornflake, waiting for the van to come. 
Corporation tee-shirt, stupid bloody Tuesday. 
Man, you been a naughty boy, you let your face grow long. 
I am the eggman, they are the eggmen. 
I am the walrus, goo goo g'joob.

The lyrics don't make much sense:

Lennon received a letter from a pupil at Quarry Bank High School, which he had attended. The writer mentioned that the English master was making his class analyse Beatles' lyrics. (Lennon wrote an answer, dated 1 September 1967, which was auctioned by Christie's of London in 1992.) Lennon, amused that a teacher was putting so much effort into understanding the Beatles' lyrics, decided to write in his next song the most confusing lyrics that he could.

This was the song which closed the London Olympics in 2012:

But perhaps we should finish with the greatest pop musical festival in the UK - which finished a couple of days ago:

Two years ago, the headline act was the Rolling Stones:

They were part of the original 'British Invasion' in the early 1960s:

Did you know that the Rolling Stones saved the Blues?

And that British Blues players are considered among the best?

Which brings us to some more controversy:
