    'Come Together' would have to be dropped from the recording.

    They'd be shown on the cover wearing skinny jeans and would have man buns.

    So, just drums and bass?

    So they'd be Death From Above 1979, but playing "Temporary Secretary"?
    That's either the best thing, or the very worst thing.

    If the Fab 4 were alive, well and about to record Abby Road?

    Bean Counter: Yeah, I know you guys have some good songs but your last album could have sold way more. We'll change things up a bit. Paul, you will be working in studio 1 with this gentleman, who will be your producer. George, you are in our downtown studio with this gentleman. JL, you are in our cross town studio-
    John: That's John.
    Bean Counter: We did some marketing research and we decided JL has more appeal.
    Now don't you guys worry, we arranged for the musicians and songs for each of you. See, this way, instead of the four of you making an album that sells six million, each of you can sell six million.
    Now, Ringo, I'm afraid you are no longer required. Maybe get a nose job and come back and see us.

    Maxwell's Silver Hammer would be dropped for glorifying violence against women. (Should have been dropped anyway IMO. One of the Fab's few stinkers.)

    Yeah I bet it was not already the case for the Beatles :)

    Damn, they were the one originating what you described.

    If the Beatles recorded Abbey Road now, in the same way, production costs would exceed 10 million and there would still be too much bass in the mix.

    Also Billy Preston and George Martin would be credited as the important participants that they were.
