The Top Ten

1
Revolution 9
Worse. Song. Ever. Why the heck is Yellow Submarine on this list? That's my favorite song by The Beatles! That song made me a true fan of the Beatles. There are a lot of worse songs than that! If you hate Yellow Submarine, you are dead to me. Sorry, I got off track a little bit. Revolution 9 is not even a song to me. I first heard this song when I was 9 (ironic), and it scared the living crap out of me. John, stick to writing songs like 'Imagine' and 'In My Life'. This song ruined The White Album for me.
The absolute worst Beatles song ever! What was Lennon thinking? Sure, he can experiment, but not on one of the best Beatles albums ever! The white album (The album Revolution 9 was in) would have been the best ever if The Beatles hadn't included this song.
Just listen to the sample. Yellow submarine is a great song! I wouldn't even call it experimental. Revolution 9 is just a mishmash of garbage thrown together. Why are there so many GREAT songs on this list? Maybe because the Beatles don't have 10 worst songs. Just a couple!

2Wild Honey Pie
I LOVE the beatles, they are my favorite band! but, c'mon, this is without a doubt the worst beatles song ever! but hey, why is tommorow never knows and blue jay way on here?! those are two of the beatles masterpieces! :(
The only bad song on this list. I love Blue Jay Way and Tomorrow Never Knows, and definitely Why Don't We Do It In The Road.
I don't think this even deserves to be called a "song". Just total nonsense, without any point

3Yellow Submarine
Really the Beatles sometimes just like to have fun. Who cares if it does not sound good. The Beatles always have a point to each song.
Revolution 9 is alright when compared with Yellow Submarine, Ringo sounds terrible! Worst song off a good Album (Revolver) It's just a kids song (this is coming from a 13-year-old Scotsman)
I don't like it from Revolver, but in the movie Yellow Submarine, it is amazing, awesome and fantastic.

4Why Dont We Do It In the Road?
What on Earth is Help! Doing on here (And why does every one hate Ringo's songs? )
This is just plain boring, with no meaning and a track that doesn't really deserve to be on the
Masterpiece that is śThe Beatlesť
It's not a terrible song, but there's just really not that much to it at all. It's a song that, quite honestly, could almost be written, sung, and recorded by Justin Bieber or Selena Gomez.

Virtuoso

Maybe the worst pop tune of the 60's by an entire production company that should have done much better.

5Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da
It's such a peaceful and simple song!
What is there to hate?
Such a good flow.
Its great and catchy
Awful, disingenuous, Paul McCartney penned, Call of Duty-reggae. Say what you want about 'Revolution 9'. At least that "song" was influential and interesting as a piece of art. Anyone who thinks: "But it's catchy/fun/not-a-mutilation-of-reggae! " should listen to Natty Dread, then London Calling, then reevaluate their life.

6Dig It
A pointless song, absolutely boring! Why did the Beatles: a) Write this, b) put it on an album? What is the point!? The song only last 50 seconds. Ridiculous! I don't know which one of The Beatles wrote this, but whoever did they musn't have been serious about writing it.
Phil Spector was the one that put this song on Let it be but why did he shorten it to 50 sec?! I've heard the longer version of 4:20, it's also not serious but if he put a complete version on the album it would be much more worth.
Yellow submarine, because, help shouldn't be on this list.
If I made a top 10 Worst Beatles songs, this is undoubtedly #1. Not sure why it doesn't get the hate it deserves. I'm listening to this album right not and even I can tell you it would be perfect without this piece of junk.

7What's the New Mary Jane?
Why Strawberry fields, she said, help, yesterday, octopus's garden, within you
Without you, yellow submarine and because are in the list?!
They are very very good songs!

8Dizzy Miss Lizzy
A weak, boring, poorly-sang finale to the fabulous Help! Album. It sounds really out of place on the album and annoying. Should have been an EP track.
So out of place on Help! I usually stop playing when it gets to this song as it ruins the vibe of the album
Listen to sample

9Maxwell's Silver Hammer
This is a good song. Good music and lyrics. Catchy and awesome
This is a fantastic song! It belongs in the top 50 beatles songs of all time!
A slight, upbeat ditty about a psychopath murderer. This doesn't work for me at all. Not that Paul could have predicted it, but Lennon was eventually gunned down by a psychopath which makes this song's premise even more distasteful. Ugh, "Granny Music" as John said.

10Birthday
Not the Beatles best
I have never liked it. I can't really stand it that well.
Listen to sample

The Contenders

11Mr. Moonlight
Should be the number 1 worst song, totally disagree with the top ten here, each song above has it's own inner thoughtful or experimental basis.
Actually I think this is a tremendously great song! Another Beatles gem!
How is this not on the list? This is clearly a horrible song, performed by an exhausted band making mistakes.

12Maggie Mae
For being only 43 seconds I thought it was catchy

13I'll Get You
One of the few bad Beatles' songs
Listen to sample

14Little Child Listen to sample

15P.S. I Love You
What! Why is this song even here it's definitely not amazing but there are worse songs... it's just a harmless example of early Beatles before they progressed...
This is definitely one of the weakest Beatles songs. The tune sucks and is not catchy.
Cheesy lyrics. Not Beatles standards

16All Together Now
Why is this here? This song is short and joyful, if this song was 2 minutes longer and had a bit more meaning it would probably be a top 15 song.
Is the absolute worst song the Beatles have ever made. They should dissown it. Ringo was a good drummer, but he really shouldn't have made any songs. I'M LOOKING THROUGH YOU IS A GREAT SONG!
I have to admit. I like this song. Catchy. Heard it twice remembered it. Good country type feel to it. But Yellow Submarine ( song) sucks, but the album of the same name is good

17Dig a Pony Listen to sample

18You Know My Name (Look Up the Number)
Heard this song on the radio the other day. Not sure why anyone would play it or listen to it.
This is not a song. This ia a couple of guys getting really stoned and making funny voices; It probably seemed like a good idea with the chemical enhancement.
Listen to sample

19Octopus's Garden
A dopey awful song that wants to repeat the whimsy of Yellow Submarine and just sinks.
Dammit Ringo!
What where they thinking
This song really cuts the mood of Abbey Road
Listen to sample

20Yesterday
This should never be on this list. Have you even listened to the words? In fact this list shouldn't really exist because a 'worst' Beatles song just doesn't exist!
Disgraceful!

Britgirl

This is a really good song, since paul sings it
This is a beautiful song! A masterpiece! Why is it on here?

21Rocky Raccoon
I adore Paul, but his fake accent in this song is so incredibly irritating.
Fake country with a fake accent, where's the rock/pop. And all the plot/subplot. What a waste of time.
Rocky Raccoon is one of the worst songs by ANYBODY, let alone the Beatles. Awful.
Listen to sample

22Within You Without You
WHAT?! WHY SO HIGH! Sure not every Beatles song is a masterpiece, I totally agree with Revolution 9. BUT WITHIN YOU WITHOUT YOU?!?! Such a good song. "With our love we could save the world, if they only knew. " come on PEOPLE!
Amazing song, expresses the true meaning of our inner soul which is so important in life
WHAT? Why's this so high?

Get this magnificent song off this list! That weirdo who says that "It is so bad even the devil hates it" is off his rocker. Get this song off the list!

28The Continuing Story of Bungalo Bill
Yoko's voice in this song is very irritating and annoying that I risk scratching my White Album vinyl to skip this rubbish track. What was John thinking?!

One of the best to me. George's voice sounds really unique!

32Helter Skelter
Many like it, many dislike it. Rare piece, this one.
Weird, trashy and loud. Don't like it much, wonder what folks in 1968 thought of it when it came out. Rubbish.
It's terrible. Paul had obviously been listening to Hendrix when writing this drivel!

34Because
I can't imagine why this is on the list. One of the most gorgeous harmonies ever set to record.

The dumbest most pointless weird boring Beatles song.

Help! Seriously?! And The Long and Winding Road as two of the worst Beatles songs? Woule never have said that in a million years. Both uplifting, beautiful songs.

47Revolution 1
Because of the fact that they put THIS? On the White Album instead of REVOLUTION? , makes me hate this song with a vengeance. It's too bad.

48Yes It Is
This is the only song that is a song in which they are completely out of key. Only Beatles Song I don't like!

Who put "Within You Without You" on the list. I love that song. Would be in Georges top 5.

49When I'm Sixty-Four
This song is adorable, catchy and joyful. The lyrics are light and easy. Paul McCartney's vocals on it are smooth and clear. This song is really fun to listen to.
This should NOT be on the list. I know most of my family loves this song!
Absolutely worst. I can't even stand. Beatles is a rock band and have most beautiful songs in the world like "a day in the life" although it isn't in rock genre. This song one of the McCartney's senseless experimental songs.

50Love Me Do
I love this song! One of my favourites
Listen to sample

51I'm Looking Through You
This is great, you retards. Off course its different to a A day in the life, but this song has many meaning and a catchy beat. Underrated.
I actually like this song, I guess
This is song is ok, but compared to a song like "A Day in the Life, " it's just garbage.

62Carnival of Light
I like all of these songs except Revolution 9 (Paul didn't even like it. ) This was awful, though. Still better than #9.

63She's Leaving Home
I love the Beatles and the majority of Paul's songs but this one just makes me really sad! The only bad track on Sgt Pepper in my opinion!
Listen to sample

64Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite
I just don't get it I guess. The one bad song on Sgt Peppers because it really doesn't mean anything at all. Worst of all it's right after the beautiful song "She's Leaving Home". How does a horse do the waltz?
Listen to sample

65Come Together
Not actually their worst song (That's Obla Di Obla the), but it deserves mention. The broken English nonsense lyrics of the first 3.5 verses, coupled with a phony accent makes for a cringe-inducing combination.
Listen to sample

66A Day In the Life
This is the BEST song by The Beatles.

ProgeRules

For all the people pissing and moaning about the song being 'loud' and 'noisy' I think you're all little saps that can't have a real taste in music
I don't like some of it. I hate those scary instrumental parts. The rest of the song is fine though

67Tomorrow Never Knows
Nothing on the 'Revolver' album should be on this list! It is a perfect pop / rock album and the finest popular music record ever made!
