Despite their legendary rivalry, The Beatles helped The Rolling Stones break into the mainstream by writing them a hit single in 1963.

It's one of the all-time great rivalries.

Pepsi versus Coca-Cola, Muhammad Ali versus Joe Frazier, Tom versus Jerry, Mods versus Rockers, Sherlock Holmes versus Professor Moriarty, Bette Davis versus Joan Crawford, Elton John versus, well everyone else.

Above is just a small handful of some of the most notorious rivalries within the pantheon of popular culture. Pick your side.

One of the most famous conflicts throughout the past century, however, has undoubtedly been between The Beatles and The Rolling Stones.

Both era-defining bands spearheaded the British Invasion during the 1960s and dominated charts around the world.
