    Obviously everybody immediately thinks of Oasis, clearly massiely influenced by them.
    But here's a couple of tracks by bands who do the Beatles sound really well with some good music of their own.

    Bit of 60s garage punk here, The Knickerbockers with their cracking tune Lies

    From 2003 a little known American act called The Singles with I'm In Love With You

    And The Singles again with He Can Go, You Can't Stay

    Another 60s garage classic, The Gants - I Wonder

    Dunno how I didn't think of those two.
    Especially The Rutles. Some genuinely good music by them.

    Nice one, don't think I've heard that before. Haven't listened to a lot of their early stuff, but Melody Fair is a good song from their early days as well that I've heard.

    Can't post a link but check out a band called Los Shakers. They were Beatles clones from South America who existed at the same time as the Fab Four. They sang in English and had some great songs. Check out "Break It All" or "Give Me" on YouTube.

    I'm not posting links but almost the entire career of Electric Light Orchestra probably came from 'I am The Walrus'. Tears for Fears also did a good impersonation on Sewing the Seeds of Love.

    Check out Jellyfish.

    There was a time when if you didn't sound like the Beatles you didn't stand a chance (sort of)

    "...the band the Beatles could have been"

    The Dukes Of Stratosphere, (XTC) do a nice tip of the hat to the psychedelic bands of the 60's the Beatles included.

    It'll be the best of the Beatles.

    Well done for the AP ref.
    Also good shout on the band. Never heard of them before will be listening to them. The name, the spelling of their name and their songs sound exactly like the 60s psych/garage stuff I love. Cheers

    Prefer their later work. Shark Sandwich especially.
