Is This All-Robot Band Better Than the Beatles?

Will the bot band be to 2017 what the boy band was to 1997? You be the judge! In the videos below, two such groups offer electro-mechanical renditions of the B-52s' "Rock Lobster" and Queen's "Bohemian Rhapsody." 

Creator James Cochrane writes, "What do you get when you combine retro computer parts and an up and coming robot band? The Bit-52s! This idea has been simmering in my mind for the last couple of years and after many months of procrastinating it is finally complete. I was also motivated to finish my robot band after seeing a [video of] 'The Trons' from New Zealand."

Queen once sang, "When machines take over/It ain't no place for rock and roll." Agree? Disagree? Weigh in below.

Better than the Beatles? Where's your dead Paul? Where's your Yoko? Where's your 20+ songs in Rolling Stone's "best songs of all time"?

Its clever, its interesting, its fun.....but it ain't the definitely not the Beatles.
