Top 10 Worst Beatles Songs

The Top TenXW

1Revolution 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!

Even a "worst" Beatles song can still be a good song, it's just not as good as so many others - Billyv

I have no idea what they were thinking with this one. They must have been tripping on every drug that exists.

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.

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!

Yuck, this song is terrible

3Why Dont We Do It In the Road?

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.

4Dig 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.

It's hardly a song. - SammySpore

5Yellow 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.

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!

6Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da

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

This song is great, give it a chance!

For being only 43 seconds I thought it was catchy

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.

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

I absolutely despise the song! Worse then Wild Honey Pie, but not quite as bad as Rev. 9. I love Yellow Sub, Maxwell and Dig It. They should not be here! - backflip

It's a good song, but it doesn't fit on the help album. - SammySpore

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!

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.

This is very good and clever song written by Paul, I just don't think it belongs on Abbey Road

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

The Contenders

11Birthday

I wouldn't want this song playing on my birthday.

This is a song that should be known more

They play this song on the radio

What? I love this song.

12You Know My Name (Look Up the Number)

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.

13Within 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

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 time

14What'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! - 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.

15Mr. Moonlight

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... - SammySpore

16P.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 a good song, though. My favorite on Please Please Me

Cheesy lyrics. Not Beatles standards

This is definitely one of the weakest Beatles songs. The tune sucks and is not catchy.

This is a great early song! Why is this on here?!

19Octopus's Garden

It's just a really harmless fun song. Don't be too serious here.

This is my favorite song. Are people that hurt over The Beatles making awesome children's songs? Sighs, whatever. - Pony

I love this song. It is actually one of my favorites aside from: When I'm Sixty Four and Lucy in The Sky With Diamonds

This and Maxwell's Silver Hammer should have never been on Abbey Road..

20Blue Jay Way

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!
