Top 10 Worst Beatles Songs12ags21
The Top TenXW
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!
Even a "worst" Beatles song can still be a good song, it's just not as good as so many others - Billyv
I'd take it over Don't Pass Me By. - marmalade_skiesV106 Comments
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.
The Beatles are an amazing band, but, come on paul, you can do better than this. The vocals sound EXACTLY like a constipated parrot stuck in a garbage disposal. maybe its true that paul WAS dead when he wrote this song!
At least Revolution 9 contains actual sounds that can be heard without wishing you were deaf.V32 Comments
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.
This goes on the album but Don't Let Me Down doesn't make the cut. - marmalade_skiesV8 Comments
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.
This is supposed to be a children's song. You don't understand the point of this song. - Pony
This is the song people know them for, and it is one of their best singles!V35 Comments
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
I feel like I'm the only one who actually likes this song... 0_0
Maybe the worst pop tune of the 60's by an entire production company that should have done much better.
Should be removed from the catalog altogether.V13 Comments
It's such a peaceful and simple song!
What is there to hate?
Such a good flow.
Come on. You people make me want to break down and cry. This is a fun song! It's better than almost every song on their first two albums at least! It is a blast to play on the piano as well. Like a wise man once said, let Paul McCartney have his fun.
Why does everybody hate this song? Because it has a catchy beat? What is wrong with you people. - Pony
It's catchy though. - marmalade_skiesV26 Comments
For being only 43 seconds I thought it was catchyV1 Comment
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!
Britain's tax minister at the time was a chap named Maxwell and Lennon felt the taxes were a little too high. When taxes made people unable to pay for cars, homes, etc., they were repossessed, and that's what this song is about. Maxwell's Silver Hammer is actually taxation and not a murder weapon. I'll admit that the way it's written is kinda creepy, though.
The worst song the album, but it's catchy. - marmalade_skiesV16 Comments
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.
Typical of what they did in their early years: great covers many better than the originals. I don't think there's any double tracking on this one. Just pure Lennon screaming
So out of place on Help! I usually stop playing when it gets to this song as it ruins the vibe of the album
Seriously? It's one of my favorite tracks on the albums. - marmalade_skiesV8 Comments
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
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! - ProgeRules
The hell song is this. It wasn't on 1 or past masters. - SammySpore
Uhh...well, I suppose this masterpiece could been on white album instead of revolution 9. Needs a lot of work to say the least. But it was dumped wasn't it? No.9 belongs on a Plastic Ono Band album.
The only reason this could not be on this list and not #1 is that people forgot it existed. Which is easy to do.
Actually I think this is a tremendously great song! Another Beatles gem!
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.
I like the song... - SammySporeV6 Comments
I was listening to past masters, and I listened to the whole album. I thought, "this has tons of gems on it! " And then I heard this. I was like, "What is this? This is not even a song! " - SammySpore
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.V1 Comment
I wouldn't want this song playing on my birthday.
This is a song that should be known more
I think it's a great song, it's just that drum solo is terrible. - UncommonLoon
What? I love this song.V8 Comments
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 a good song, though. My favorite on Please Please Me
This is definitely one of the weakest Beatles songs. The tune sucks and is not catchy.
Cheesy lyrics. Not Beatles standardsV2 Comments
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
I don't actually know this song; I just know it's on Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (good album) and I didn't like it the first time I heard it.
Hate it, the only bad song in the best album of all timeV6 Comments
This song freaks me out. When I was little, maybe 6, my dad used to play Beatles music all the time in the car, and I thought Blue Jay Way was decent. Now I'm 13, and now I found Paul is dead stuff in it of you play it backwards, AND FORWARDS. Creepy song
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!V2 Comments
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.
1 2 3 4! Can I have a little more? 5 6 7 8 9 10! I love you!
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!V1 Comment
Aw come on, it's one of the best songs on the album!
Oh God! Why the hell did they do this?!?! - PositronWildhawk
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
Actually, The Beatles have made some bad songs. She Loves You and Revolution 9 are examples of terrible Beatles songs. - TheMusicNerd
This is a really good song, since paul sings it
This is a beautiful song! A masterpiece! Why is it on here? - Alpha101
