The Rutles. [wonderful Beatles parody]

The mock rock band known for their visual and aural pastiches and parodies of the Beatles. This originally fictional band, created by Eric Idle and Neil Innes for 1970s television programming, became an actual group (while remaining a parody of the Beatles) and toured and recorded, releasing many songs and albums that included two UK chart hits.

John loved it, Paul hated it.

George Harrison helped them to try to avoid copyright issues, but Neil Innes had to share 50% of The Rutles songs royalties with Lennon-McCartney, after ATV sued them!

Didn't know that, but I'm with John.
