1.) The Beatles have never been on X Factor.
2.) The Beatles might have produced a few alright songs, but they also foisted some right howlers on us, like that walrus rubbish. One Direction’s entire back catalogue is, unarguably, a totally perfect body of work. (OK, they’ve only released one single so far but it is REALLY GOOD.)
3.) One Direction only became a band after Nicole Scherzinger suggested it on the show. The Beatles became a band without input from any of the Pussycat Dolls. Tedious.
4.) The Beatles rushed to deliver their first album, bashing out ten of the fourteen tracks in just one day. One Direction have spent nearly a whole year on their debut, so it’s obvious which will be the superior recording.
5.) When One Direction are apart they always text and tweet “I miss you” to each other. The Beatles didn’t even like each other enough to stay together.
6.) One Direction call Simon Cowell “Uncle Simon.” John Lennon never even met Simon Cowell!
7.) The Beatles tried other names like Johnny and the Moondogs, Long John and The Beetles and The Silver Beatles before becoming The Beatles. One Direction have always had one direction about being called One Direction.
8.) One Direction’s Zayn went out with Rebecca Ferguson, who is much classier than Cynthia Lennon. During X Factor, Harry, Liam and Zayn were all linked to the same girl, and this could potentially have ripped the band apart. In other words, Cher Lloyd is their Yoko. Amazing.
9.) The Beatles were famous for their hair. Yet, no Beatle had better hair than Harry Styles, right.
10.) One Direction are the ambassadors for Pokemon. The selfish old Beatles were only ever ambassadors for themselves.
Okay, it’s official. We can now all collectively go die a little inside.

Whoever wrote the newspaper/magazine article must’ve been an idiot. I can’t believe this is what the world has come to. How could anyone begin to compare One Direction to the most influential band in the world. The First reason is plainly idiotic, as the Beatles didn’t have to be on the X-Factor to be put together. The fact that they were almost destroys their magic (if there was any in the first place). The 2nd reason is a good point but 1D will make some bad songs in their years to come because they’ve only been together for 2 years and have only written 13 songs (which they only wrote 1 or 2 of) then you must understand that you will find more bad songs in 291 songs than in 13. Point 3 is a joke as the Pussycat dolls weren’t even formed when the Beatles formed… and they aren’t any good anyway. 4) I understand what they’re trying to say but at least they wrote they’re own songs. 5) There was no such thing as twitter or texts when the Beatles were together (in the early years), but even if there was I don’t think they would because they didn’t spend their days trying to be cute in front of the public, they were musicians, not performers. Number 6: Simon Cowell is a judge and the only reason One Direction is successful. The Beatles didn’t need Simon Cowell. 7: Didn’t Simon Cowell come up with the name One Direction? 8: Your point? 9: The Beatles’ hairstyles was the style of their time. Harry Styles’ is what the style is now so you can’t compare. 10: I’m sorry that The Beatles weren’t little kiddies who played with trading cards.
