"Lennon or McCartney?"

In the world of Beatle-dom, there is perhaps no question quite as vexing or as apt to start a discussion or fight.

But it's the question filmmaker Matt Schichter put to some 550 artists over the past 10 years. In his new documentary, Lennon or McCartney, he serves up the answers of musicians like Robbie Robertson, Bo Diddley, Ozzy Osbourne, Geezer Butler, Metallica, the Sex Pistols and Pete Townshend. He even includes a host of actors, including Robert DeNiro, Kevin Spacey and Zach Galifianakis.

Watch them answer for yourself. Then let us know your choice...and why.
