— Gameloft description for "Guitarist Pony", a reference to the song, "I Am the Walrus"[source]

The Beatles were a famous rock band that flourished throughout the 1960s. Their most iconic line-ups, and indeed, perhaps one of the most iconic line-ups in music history, was John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr and George Harrison, with each individual musician being an influential and famous musician in their own right. Though traditionally labeled as a rock and roll band, they dabbled in several genres and styles, such as Indian music and perhaps most famous, psychedelic and hard rock.

They have been referenced on several occasions throughout My Little Pony and Equestria Girls with the unnamed Traveling Band being a direct parody of them and the place of Pepperland being a reference to their album, Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Heart Club Band and film The Yellow Submarine.


Friendship is Magic

Come together!

The episode title "Magical Mystery Cure" is a reference to the album, Magical Mystery Tour

Season 5's "Party Pooped" featured Pinkie Pie joining a band only referred to as the "Traveling Band" which served as a parody of The Beatles, with a few photographs showing their greatest hits and eventual breakup.

The title of Season 6's "Every Little Thing She Does" references "Every Little Thing"

Rainbow Rocks

So let me introduce to you the one and only Sunset Shimmer and Sgt. Rarity's Lonely Hearts Club Band

Rarity's entire section of "Friendship Through the Ages" is a parody of the psychedelic look of some later The Beatles albums.
