That's a pretty tough one but I would have to go with U2.

I'm not sure there is one, loads of bands you could argue for. The question is too simplistic.

In terms of mass influence on popular culture / other bands, The Beatles.

But they were fortunate to be at the start. There have been some very special bands at the same time and since too. Paul McCartney has been a fan of Crowded House for instance. REM and Radiohead are certainly greats, The Verve, The Stone Roses.

Something I notice about The Beatles is that they never really made a song that was a forerunner to 1980s music. In that respect, they were not as 'before their time' as some people imagine. Separately, they were far patchier, apart from Lennon. Harrison's solo work is mostly overrrated.

Hmm Helter Skelter doesn't sound like it's stuck in a sixties cul de sac IMO

and obvs by the 90's there was a very successful beatles soundalike band

I always think of Helter Skelter (which I have grown to love - it initially seemed too try hard to be rocking to me) as more of a prototype of the 1970s but I guess that the 1980s will have had heavy metal like it, it's just that I think heavy metal wasn't really as popular in the UK in the 1980s as it might have been, say, in the USA. The UK, of course, had a lot of artists in the 1980s as a proportion of worldwide talent. I'm really saying that The Beatles didn't do anything particularly proto-new romantic or proto- new wave. Although I'm sure there are songs that could be argued to be so!
