Yesterday: Make Believing A World Without The Beatles

The movie Yesterday imagines the unthinkable: a world without The Beatles. Starring Himesh Patel and Lily James, the Danny Boyle film just asks that you consider a world sans the Fab Four for two hours. Watching the removal of the band's immeasurable contribution to culture is a tough ask. They have been everywhere for over 50 years.

Six years ago, Dave Grohl released his documentary Sound City on January 31, 2013. The film was not only notable for its exploration of the famous Van Nuys studio's history, but for its soundtrack.
