I agree with Ladymacb, as long as the title of the quiz lets us know in no uncertain terms what it is about, then you can use a little slack on this. Actually, your Beatle question is all right as long as the title of the quiz is something like "Meet the Beatles!" or "The Fab Four - Beatles History." Then it's clear to us that you're asking about the Beatles.
However, you can't stray in your quiz and ask something like, who was considered a rival band of the Beatles, take the Rolling Stones for an answer, and then ask "When where they on Ed Sullivan?" Obviously in that situation, we will not know that you're asking about the Rolling Stones, and we will answer on the assumption that you are asking about the Beatles.
I'm not absolutely certain, but I believe the "stand-alone" rule is for all categories. If it isn't, then it would not apply in categories which are not used in the daily, hourly and private quizzes, and I don't know what those are if there are any.
