Why the Beatles? I don't get it.
Well, "Beatles" is very similar to the plural form of the insect called the Beetle, the change being the "beat" part, which ties in with the musical aspect.
But seriously, John Lennon said a man on a flaming pie came down and said "You shall be called the Beatles with an 'a'." Everybody knows that.
But seriously, I guess it is largely due to the fact that they were revolutionary, which is something that you wouldn't realize unless you had been old enough at the time.
But seriously, what is your question?
