Once again the British skewed view speaks for all but asks none.Where exactly did this poll scout for it's target class? I don't remember seeing this anywhere asking for my opinion!The Beatles are not quite the renaissance greats these age, gender and demographic-bias polls like to portray. That's not to say the British public are completely intelligent when it comes to music - I mean look at the top chart choices every week for proof of that.What an embarrassment.

U2 came in 3rd on this one. Each poll is different. I wonder why?
