**The Beatles influence seems to be over. If you look at the singles/album chart, it has reverted back to the time before the Beatles- singles are now written by committee, by several people, the era of the singer/songwriter is over. Popular acts like Rihanna, Katy Perry, the popular ones don't write their own songs anymore. The Tin Pan Alley approach seems to be back, professional songwriters like Max Martin, Dr. Luke, and the ubiquitous Ryan Tedder seem to dominate now. Groups like the Beatles are no longer superstars. U2, a group that Bono commented that "John Lennon invented" hasn't had a TOP 10 hit since 1997.
**It looks like the influence of the Beatles is finally coming to a close.
*Can't say i agree at all.
*Not that I like them all but here are a few off the top of my head that are doing very well and write their own material.
*Arcade Fire
*Arctic Monkeys
*Jack White
*Mumford & Sons

Some more - again, not necessarily my taste:

Foo Fighters
Green Day
The Killers
Kings of Leon
The Strokes
The Libertines
Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs

There are many - and news ones coming every day...
