Q:

What famous groups are comprised of four members?

A:

Some famous groups comprised of four members include rock group the Beatles, superhero group the Fantastic Four, the four horsemen of the apocalypse, post-punk rock band the Gang of Four and the four gospels. Other groups that contain four members include the Four Temperaments, the Four Humors, the four seasons, the Four Corners and the four cardinal directions.

The musical group the Beatles was composed of the four musicians John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr and George Harrison. The band was hugely popular in the 1960s and early '70s. In the Marvel comic book series, The Fantastic Four includes Reed Richards, Susan Storm, Ben Grimm and Johnny Storm, who together make up the superhero team of Mr. Fantastic, the Invisible Woman, the Thing and the Human Torch.

The four horsemen of the apocalypse are characters in the Book of Revelation in the New Testament of the Bible that presage the coming of the apocalypse and the Last Judgment. They are personifications of War, Famine, Death and Conquest. The English post-punk group known appropriately as the Gang of Four was made up of Andy Gill on guitar, Dave Allen on bass guitar, Jon King on vocals and Hugo Burnham on drums. The band was most active in the late 1970s and early '80s.
