Best Rock Songs by The Beatles

The Top TenXW

1Helter Skelter

This is the first true metal song. The Beatles influenced every genre of music in my opinion. And when Ringo says "I got blistas on me fingas" it is one of the most epic moments in music history.

I really don't like the Beatles, all of their songs are really mediocre, well almost all of them, this is one of the best songs I have ever listened to, at first I really didn't believe it was from the Beatles

It's awesome! One of the best songs by The Beatles. They even named a amusement park ride after this song! - booklover1

Classic drum lines by Ringo and the voice of Paul McCartney is incredible. - malamJONES

2While My Guitar Gently Weeps

Its genuinely moving. Enjoyable for every kind of person. Whether you like rock or jazz or gospel. It's the song of this generation and every other to come. If you haven't heard this song, you haven't lived life.

This deserves the first place... The music is so mysterious and you literally close your eyes and indulge in another world of musical heaven!

One of the best song of the "White Album", and I think the best George Harrison song ever written! - westofohio

Epic in scope - a timeless classic

3Come Together

This the coolest because it mixes rock and soul and blues all in one. - westofohio

4Revolution

This one sends a message of a time as a protest tune. One of John Lennons best. - westofohio

The heaviest and most political song made by John Lennon while when he was wirh The Beatles, amazing riff and excellent yelling

7Get Back

Nothing beats thier performance on the roof top performing "Get Back". - westofohio

8I Want You (She's So Heavy)

I first heard a cover of this song and then the original but it became (probably) my favorite Beatles song. It's one of their heaviest and most epic pieces. The cover I heard was by the metal band Coroner - I highly recommend it, it's very good. The double bass drum beat Coroner added to the instrumental outro sounds awesome to me. It's like a heartbeat or something like that. This cover confirms that The Beatles needed several more years in order to become a hard rock/metal band. - Metal_Treasure

Based on the musical direction they were going in the end, if they had stayed together for just a few more years, not only are we talking about the greatest rock band ever, but we're also talking about the greatest hard rock band ever.

The Beatles would have excelled at any "genre" they chose to put their talents and effort toward. If they'd wanted to be "hard rock" or "metal" (lol) they could have and would have been the best. Instead, they made ongoing decisions to play Their music, and the best music a group of any type has ever created in totality. I'm glad and thankful that they didn't waste their time - Billyv

I have heard this song over 1,000 times and I still can't tell when it ends - westofohio

This is my favorite Beatles song! - Songsta41

9Sgt. Peppers Lonely Hearts Club Band (Reprise)

One of the few "Beatles" songs you can head bang to! - westofohio

10Hey Bulldog

Very cool song that showed early move from the Mersey best songs. It's the ring tone on my phone.. They clearly had fun recording the song.

Pound for pound this is the best rocker by the boys. The intro riff alone says it all! Lh

The Newcomers

?Day Tripper
?Ticket to Ride

The Contenders

11Help!

This is one of my favorites. It has a good beat to it.

12A Day In the Life

Undoubtedly one of the greatest songs ever recorded!
John's vocals, Ringo's thoroughly satisfying fills, Paul's brilliant yet underrated bass lines and (of course) the "orchestral orgasms". Brilliance personified!

13Paperback Writer

Great guitar sound with fantastic harmonies.

Great guitar work by George Harrison!

17The End
18Something

A fantastic George Harrison composition which deserves a higher one spot on this list. It is as good as While My Guitar Gently Weeps.

19I Saw Her Standing There

This was a great song to start out there catalog of albums. Killer start to Please Please Me in 1963. One of Pauls best! - westofohio

20Tomorrow Never Knows

Too me this is the first 1990's style Alternative song, like a Nirvana or Soundgarden kind of song. The Doors where the first band to play this kind of music on most their songs. - westofohio
