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!
[Newest]It's like someone messed up their mix tape.

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
[Newest]Is this a song?

3Yellow Submarine
Beatles is the best band to ever exist. They're the best pop band, rock band and psychedelic band ever. They've played heavier than Toni Iommi, experimented more than Captain Beefheart and Pink Floyd combined, and they wrote crazier lyrics than one can possibly imagine. Of course, behind all their masterpieces, you'll find some failed songs since they've done so much music. Yellow Submarine is definitely one of those, and just like someone else wrote here, it's like a children's song. It's so weird that it's one of their most known songs. It should really be a soundtrack for some children's cartoon instead.
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.
I don't like it from Revolver, but in the movie Yellow Submarine, it is amazing, awesome and fantastic.
[Newest]Revolver would have been perfect without this.

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.
[Newest]I feel like I'm the only one who actually likes this song... 0_0

5Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da
Its great and catchy
I agree! This is a very good song. What it is doing on this list I have no idea
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.
I'm sure at the time this was a fun, amusing little ditty. But it's really embarrassingly bad now and has not held up well at all.
[Newest]You should hear the anthology version, bad ass. Still not a song to be on this list

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.
[newest]
Revolution 9 is awesome. Wild Honey Pie is good. Ob-la-di Ob-la-the is catchy. But this song is terrible.

7Dizzy 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

8Maxwell'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.
[Newest]This is a great song, maybe not one of their best but it doesn't belong in the top 10 worst songs.

9What'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!

10Mr. 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.
How is this not on the list? This is clearly a horrible song, performed by an exhausted band making mistakes.
Actually I think this is a tremendously great song! Another Beatles gem!

The Contenders

11Birthday
Not the Beatles best
I wouldn't want this song playing on my birthday.
I have never liked it. I can't really stand it that well.

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

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

14Little Child

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

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

19Within 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?

20Octopus's Garden
It's just a really harmless fun song. Don't be too serious here.
I like this song my top 20
A dopey awful song that wants to repeat the whimsy of Yellow Submarine and just sinks.

21Yesterday
This is a really good song, since paul sings it
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 beautiful song! A masterpiece! Why is it on here?

Alpha101

[Newest]Best song should be out of list

22Flying
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!
Why wasn't this on here yet Maxwell, Yes it Is, Yesterday and Help are! This song is so bad even the devil hates it. Come on

23Rocky 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.
What in the world!? This is one of my favorite songs by The Beatles! It has a very Dylan-esque feel and a wonderfully catchy chorus by Paul!

higgsboson2142


24A Taste of Honey

25Anna (Go to Him)
This is one of my favorite Beatles songs! This is a harsh list

westofohio


26Glass Onion

27Don't Pass Me By
Suck song by ringo
He is not a good song writer.

28The Continuing Story of Bungalo Bill
This song is actually one of my favorites the only thing bringing it down is Yoko
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?!

29Blue Jay Way
One of the best to me. George's voice sounds really unique!
not my favorite; but what's "Help! " doing on here?! That's my favorite!

30Drive My Car

31Helter Skelter
Many like it, many dislike it. Rare piece, this one.
What The... come on, you are kidding me, this just is NOT possible! One of their all-time best songs just... can't be on this list!
The only reason this song is on here is because of the Manson murders.

32I Am the Walrus
One of my favorites :). Still don't know why..
The name sounds really weird!

funnyuser

Hilarious video I love it. COO COO CACHOO

33I Need You

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

35Hello, Goodbye
Why is this song on here?! This is like my favorite Beatles song. It's very catchy!
The lyrics are meaningless and stupid
The dumbest most pointless weird boring Beatles song.

36Magical Mystery Tour
Oh God! Why the hell did they do this?!?!

PositronWildhawk


37Chains

38Honey Pie
Just something about this song makes me want to scratch my eardrums out. Somethings besides that it's just mediocre.

39Help!
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.

Britgirl

The best song ever

40Devil In Her Heart
Some of these songs shouldn't be on this list. Even this one.

41Yellow Submarine In Pepperland
This was on a Beatles album, but even though the song is a Lennon-McCartney wirtten song, this version was not performed by the Beatles, so this song shouldn't even be here.

SixtiesRockGuy


42You've Got to Hide Your Love Away
Hey! It is just marvelous why is it here?

43Hey Jude
I can tell that an idiot made this list when he put this song on this list
Every knows song in the world
What is this song doing here?!?!?!
[Newest]Remember, this far from the top, that does not mean he hates it.

44Boys

45Polythene Pam

46One After 909

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.

BKAllmighty


48Yes It Is
Who put "Within You Without You" on the list. I love that song. Would be in Georges top 5.

westofohio

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

westofohio

The best remade Beatles song is on this list, no way! I love Revolution No. 9. It's art.

westofohio


49Love Me Do
I love this song! One of my favourites

50I'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.

InsertNameHere


51When 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.

52Piggies
The only song I skip on the first disc of the White Album. Oh, and Bungalo Bill.

53Sun King
I love this song until the end it starts speaking italin or Spanish I don't know

54Her Majesty
Strange way to end a great Album. Really short too.

55She Said She Said

56Free As a Bird
You know dude, it is a great song, and (whether it was the 1990s or not), they did a great job remixing it and adding all of the Beatles onto it as a composition. Give it some credit.

SixtiesRockGuy

It wasn't the Beatles. It was John, and it sucked.

57Twist and Shout
One of the best! It's a song you can just get up and dance to

58Let It Be

59Good Night

60What Goes On
It's a good song, I don't know why it made this list or why the comment under me thinks that way. (I don't think so at all) but what if it did not make it the best album per say, I wouldn't say it would "ruin" the album; that's a little much.

SixtiesRockGuy

Ruins an amazing album. Ringo I love you but please stawp.

61Martha My Dear

62Run for Your Life

63Carnival 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.

64She'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!

65Being 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?

66Come 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.

67I Feel Fine
Uh this song is too annoying and repetitive. Not to mention the sloppy bass playing (sorry Paul) never liked it never will

68I Want You (She's So Heavy)
Best song ever YA

betahatcreate


69A 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
[Newest]Everyone says it's beautiful and artistic. It's just noise! Except for Paul's part

70Strawberry Fields Forever
It's a masterpiece in my opinion, and it's better than half the junk being released by record companies (including Capitol) today. (@below, -34 likes probably gives you a look at what most people are thinking)

SixtiesRockGuy

The only Beatles song that I truly HATE! What were they thinking!

71Tomorrow 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!

MikeFuller


72The Long and Winding Road
"The Long and Whining Road"
Dafuq!? Not the best but not the fucling worst!
