Any historically significant time period is usually described as an era. When the tastes change and the fashions change, its the end of said era. The Beatles were so culturally significant that they not only dominate an era of music history but they have eras within their own era. Theres 1962 to 1964, which encompassed the supergroups poppier rock n roll, featuring monster hits like Love Me Do and I Want to Hold Your Hand. In 1964, Bob Dylan introduced the Beatles to marijuana. Various evolutions occurred. They went psychedelic. Then there was Rubber Soul, then post-Rubber Soul.
