We were fed up with being the Beatles. We really hated that fucking four little mop-top approach. We were not boys, we were men ... and thought of ourselves as artists rather than just performers. - Paul McCartney on Sgt. Pepper We didn't really shove the LP full of pot and drugs but, I mean, there was an effect. We were more consciously trying to keep it out. You wouldn't say, "I had some acid, baby, so groovy," but there was a feeling that something had happened between Revolver and Sgt. Pepper - John Lennon We're not trying to outwit the public. The whole idea is to try a little bit to lead people into different tastes - George Harrison on Sgt. Pepper In Sgt. Pepper's intricate aural tapestry is the sound of four men rebelling against musical convention and, in doing so, opening wide the door for the sonic experimentation that launched hard rock, punk, metal, new wave, grunge and every other form of popular music that followed. – Christopher Scapelliti 2007

We've called each other every name in the book but we never came to blows. We have lived through a phenomena that most people never experience and that makes all four of us BROTHERS forever and for life. No arguments, no disagreements, nothing can ever change that, nothing can tear us apart. We are tied through this together.

Band Name Origins:

  • "It came in a vision, a man appeared to us on a floating pie and said, 'From this day on you will be known as the Beatles with an 'A'.'" -John Lennon Submitted by: Sporkkk
  • The Beatles early music was NOT all in 4/4, there were songs in 3/4, 12/8, 6/8 - long before they were famous. There was, howver, a back beat, so the beat was very important. All in all, clearly a play on words (typical of Lennon), and reference to the Crickets. The story about McCartney is made up (by McCartney). Submitted by: Paulmarkj

Comments & Submitter Name
"Paul McCartney""He's very well known through his own name(more than George Harrison)and has fine succes with Hop Of Deliverance. " - mads.
"George Harrison""George is the first musician to use a non-Western insrument in rock-n-roll. He learned to play the sitar, tabla, tamboura and other instruments from India. Now instruments from India, the Middle East, Africa, the Orient and other regions are occasionaly used by rock bands and musicians as varied as Bruce Springsteen, the Rolling Stones, Sting, Phil Collins, Midnight Oil and others. Rush guitarist also uses Eastern European instruments like the mandola and bouzouki. And did somebody say Peter Gabriel?" - Rock'n'Roll Evolution #9
"George Harrison""In the late 60s George released a World/Electronic music soundtrack album for the film "Wonderwall". Later on he released "Electronic Sounds" which consists of just that. It holds the historical distinction of being possibly the first album featuring nothing but synthesizer playing. It's just George and his Moog. He pioneered the use of synthesizers in rock'n'roll. And you thought he was just a guitarist!" - Roland Korg
"John Lennon""John went on to have a successful solo career until he was shot dead by Mark David Chapman in 1980. In an ABC news interview he was asked if the Beatles would ever get back together. He replied that he "didn't know" if that would ever happen." - Celeste
"Ringo Starr""Ringo has an interesting solo career, though he had no #1 albums, he had an All-Starr Band with other popular musicians." - Paul Warren

"Bad Boy"The first song (and only cover) the greatest band on earth did without mentioning the title, the two words are in the lyrics but not together. - Alan the Ottoman
"Revolution 9"The words "Number nine" repeated by a sound technician throughout the song, interspersed with nonsensical one-liners and sound effects, but the word "Revolution" is not mentioned. This song was John Lennon's idea of what a revolution would sound like if it was recorded. Paul McCartney and producer George Martin tried to keep this song off the White Album, but they lost out. - Jimsdun
"The Inner Light"Neither "inner" nor "light" are heard at all in the song - Alan of Seville
"Flying"It's an instrumental - jdizzy

Take a good look around you
Take a good look you're bound to see
That you and me were meant to be for each other

Cranberry sauce (muttered by John Lennon at the end of the extended outro)
Why They're Inappropriate:

Dirty Song Lyrics:

"Drive My Car"
The Dirty Lyrics:
Asked a girl what she wanted to be. She said baby, can't you see. I want to be famous, a star of the screen. But you can do something in between. Baby you can drive my car.
Why They're Dirty:
The girl (an aspiring star) is saying to the narrator (presumably a guy), that when she becomes successful, he can do something "in between". "Drive my car" (or your car) was a common metaphor for sexual intercourse used in old blues songs, which Lennon and McCartney had to have been well aware of. In this song, doing something in between could also mean oral sex.

Super Long Pop Songs:

"Hey Jude" Length: 7:21
Many peoples and listeners believe that this is the longest coda ever in the world before beated by "Free Bird" by Lynyrd Skynyrd and "Layla" by Derek and the Dominos. That coda is best known for the "na na na na" hook that repeatedly many times. The hook is first sung at 3:10 mark, next to fade out to silence at 7:16 mark, and ends at 7:21 mark. Other peoples also believe that the coda is a bridge from boring to more entertain.

"Komm Gib Mir Deine Hand"
The Lyrics:
Oh, komm doch, Komm zu mir, Du nimmst mir den Verstand. Oh, komm doch, Komm zu mir, Komm gib mir deine Hand. Komm gib mir deine Hand. Komm gib mir deine Hand. Oh, du bist so schön, Schön wie ein Diamant, Ich will mit dir gehen, Komm gib mir deine Hand. Komm gib mir deine Hand. Komm gib mir deine Hand. In deinen Armen bin ich glücklich und froh; Das war noch nie bei einer andern Einmal so. Einmal so. Einmal so. Oh, komm doch, . . . In deinen Armen bin ich glücklich und froh; . . . Oh, du bist so schön, .
This is the German version of "I Want to Hold Your Hand". In order to maintain the song meter and syllable setup correctly some lyrics were altered in the translation process. The German title literally means, "Come give to me your hand".

Upbeat Songs With Depressing Lyrics:

"Yes It Is"
The Lyrics:
Please don't wear red tonight,
This is what I said tonight.
For red is the color that makes me blue,
In spite of you it's true.
Yes it is, It's true.
Yes it is, it's true.
The song is about a man who is in love with this woman...but still can't get over the one that he lost when red is mentioned. Well...if she only had a red dress, then you can see the door closing on you faster than you can say 'Yes it is'!

"You Won't See Me"
The Lyrics:
When I call you up, your line's engaged.
I have had enough, so act your age.
We have lost the time, that was hard to find.
And I have lost my mind, if you won't see me.
This is about a woman who won't talk to this person. Yes, this has that Beatle-esque charm and upbeat music. But if you really hear the lyrics, you'd feel sorry for him.

Song Lawsuits:

In 1987, "Revolution" became the first Beatles recording to be licensed for use in a television commercial. Nike paid $500,000 for the right to use the song for one year, split between recording owner Capitol-EMI and song publisher ATV Music Publishing (owned by Michael Jackson). Commercials using the song started airing in March 1987.

The three surviving Beatles, through their record company Apple, filed in July 1987 objecting to Nike's use of the song. The suit was aimed at Nike, its advertising agency Wieden+Kennedy, and Capitol-EMI Records. Capitol-EMI said the lawsuit was groundless because they had licensed the use of "Revolution" with the "active support and encouragement of Yoko Ono Lennon, a shareholder and director of Apple." Ono had expressed approval when the commercial was released, saying the commercial "is making John's music accessible to a new generation".

The "Revolution" lawsuit and others involving the Beatles and EMI were settled out of court in 1989, with the terms kept secret. The financial website included the Nike "Revolution" advertisement campaigh in its list of the 100 key business events of the 20th century, as it helped "commodify dissent". Source:

"Business Sh*t"
I'm surprised this wasn't mentioned already. I watched the Beatles Anthology miniseries on ABC-TV (Ay-Beatle-Cee, geddit?). When their manager was found dead in a hotel the Fab 4 took on the management duties on TOP of all the stressful pressures they already had. There were several business enterprises such as Apple Corps Ltd. and their new record label Apple. The Beatles were very naive about business matters and later on they hired Allen Klein to straighten out the mess. When the burnt out superstars split up the business situation was in an extremely horrible shape. Lawsuits between Klein and the Beatles were filed back and forth. It took about 5 years just to get the band legally disbanded. Then the Apple Corps mess and more troubles with the distributor record labels took years to settle. The Fabs repeatedly referred to this legal madness as "that business sh*t".

"Never could be any other one"
At the end of the song "A Day in the Life" on the Sgt. Pepper record, if you wait for about a minute or two, this random sound starts playing. It sounds like "Never could be any other one", but it's all gibberish... It catches a lot of people off guard, and it made me run out of the room crying when I heard it as a kid.

"Baby You're A Rich Man"
In the fade-out of this song from "Magical Mystery Tour", the Beatles sing "Baby, you're a rich man, baby, you're a rich man, baby you're a rich man, too." However, at the very end of the song, if you listen carefully, it sounds like they're singing "Baby, you're a rich fag, baby you're a rich fag, baby you're a rich fag Jew." This would be a reference to their manager, Brian Epstein, who was gay and Jewish.

What A Band is Best Known For (aside from their music):

"What Paul Is"
In the psychedelic extravaganza "I Am the Walrus" John states that he is just that. In the tune "Glass Onion" John says that the walrus = Paul. In 2008 a new psychedelic/techno/electronic/experimental album is released by "The Fireman". That group consists of Sir Paul and Youth, the bassist of the band Killing Joke. The 2 musicians write, sing, play all the instruments and produce it all themselves. The front page of The Fireman's website, however, states that "The Fireman Is Paul". Geddit?

"creative tug-of-war"
Shortly after the Beatles basically split during the early 1970s John gave an interview saying that the Beatles were all "tied together" and that made them brothers. He said that he and Paul are always in a friendly "tug-of-war" when it came to songwriting. He'd write something and then Paul would try to top that, and vice versa. One example: in early 1972 there occurred a massacre of unarmed demonstrators by British occupation troops in the Northern Ireland town of Derry. Paul wrote the hit "Give Ireland Back to the Irish", which was banned by BBC radio. John wrote "Sunday Bloody Sunday" (not to be confused for the 1983 hit by the Irish band U2) and "Luck of the Irish" (with a few choice swear words). Both songs appeared on John + Yoko's next album. In 1982 Paul scored with his album "Tug-of-War" and on the title track he described the competitive spirit with his deceased Beatle buddy. That album has a few other tributes to John.
