Liverpool is noted for its culture, architecture, and transport links. It is closely associated with the arts, particularly music; the popularity of the Beatles, who are regarded as the most influential band in history, has contributed to the city's status as a tourist destination. The city has continued to produce hundreds of notable musical acts—musicians from Liverpool have produced 56 No. 1 hit singles, more than any other city in the world. Liverpool also has a long-standing reputation as the origin of countless actors and actresses, artists, comedians, journalists, novelists, poets, and sportspeople. The city has the second-highest number of art galleries, national museums, and listed buildings in the United Kingdom; only the capital, London, has more. Liverpool is home to the oldest black community in the UK and the oldest Chinese community in Europe. Natives and residents of the city are referred to formally as Liverpudlians, but most often as Scousers
, a reference to "scouse", a form of stew. The word "Scouse" has also become synonymous with the Liverpool accent and dialect. Liverpool is also of course home to Liverpool Football Club.
