But not a better band...
One Direction's Harry Styles says that the band's popularity in the US has eclipsed that of the Beatles. The singer told Top of the Pops Magazine that the band is more popular now than the Beatles were when they were at their height, but stressed they're nowhere near the Fab Four in terms of talent.
"We all sat and watched the film of The Beatles arriving in America," Styles said. "And, to be honest, that really was like us. Stepping off the plane, the girls, the madness. It was exactly the same as when we got there - just 50 years earlier. But none of us think we're in the same league as them music-wise. We'd be total fools if we did. Fame-wise, it's probably even bigger, but we don't stand anywhere near them in terms of music."
