Decca Records-Beatles

We don’t like their sound, and guitar music is on the way out.  -Decca Recording Co. rejecting the Beatles, 1962

On 1 January 1962, before they reached international stardom, the Beatles auditioned for Decca Records at their Decca Studios in West Hampstead, north London. In what is considered one of the biggest mistakes in music history, Decca decided to reject the band, selecting instead Brian Poole and the Tremeloes.
