'Just another pop band' was my thought and so my inner sophisticate dismissed them. All those screaming girls did not help their cause, either! Eventually, I did come to appreciate the Beatles, especially when harder rocking songs like Ticket to Ride or Day Tripper came along. Yes, they were everything everyone says they were. ;)
But watching that tribute didn't really do that much for me. Moreover, the Columbo rerun on MeTV had Clive Revill (a most excellent actor) singing Irish songs and strumming his tenor banjo. How could I miss that?
