RAT Rock News

The Beatles are understandably universally adored, but the latest figures from Spotify are certainly pleasantly surprising.

Digital Music News reports that songs by The Beatles have been streamed about 1.7 billion times so far in 2019, and 30 percent of those total streams come from users between 18 and 24.

Another fascinating figure from Spotify’s streaming data is that out of its 220 million monthly users, 20.6 million of them, or nearly 20 percent, have listened to the Beatles.

Just in case you needed a reminder of The Beatles’ timelessness, those are pretty staggering figures, especially when it comes to the 18-24 age group. To borrow from The Who, perhaps the kids really are alright.
