Stop running and identify yourselves!

Help me identify the 4 running dudes pictured on this button.

I found this bag of buttons at a garage sale, and have had them banging around the house for about 15 years. A few friends have thought the image to be that of the Beatles, but I'm not so sure. I have no back story on the bag o' buttons to help solve the mystery. Can you identify what I assume is a rock band?

I think it is the Beatles. Possibly a version of this image from A Hard Day's Night.

It is The Beatles, not The Monkees.

It also happens to be on the Beatles Rock Band box.

Definitely not The Monkees. I'm going with TheWhiteSkull to say it's that image from A Hard Day's Night. For sure.

Protip: Google Image Search is a wonderful thing.

Yeah I gotta confess I ran the exact Google Image Search query that floam linked to.

Yeah, my bad. I really, really didn't think the image was The Beatles. Mental block.
