The Beatles was a band which dominated the music scene all over the world in the 1960s. The band had a name which was known by young women everywhere, especially during Beatlemania. But how did the band find their name, and what exactly is it?


There has been a great deal of discussion about whether the Beatles is The Beatles, or purely Beatles.

The group have named themselves The Beatles on a number of their album covers, however the cover of Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band simply reads ‘Beatles’ on the grassy knoll in front of the band.

This has served as quite the confusion for some fans, who are unclear as to what the band should actually be.

According to various sources, many of whom have credentials surrounding their command of grammar, the band’s name is The Beatles, as, when referring to the band, both words should be capitalised, therefore the band is The Beatles.
