'''Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band''' is the eight studio album by TheBeatles, released in 1967. It is a loose ConceptAlbum, that sees The Beatles [[AlternateRealityEpisode performing as the fictitious band of the album's title]]. It became one of the most acclaimed albums of the band, being often at the top spot in "Best Albums Of All Time" lists, and sold over 32 million copies worldwide. It became a benchmark for {{Concept Album}}s, PsychedelicRock, and an influence in ProgressiveRock.

!!Tropes:
* AlbumFiller: John only composed "Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite" (which basically transcribed a circus poster) because he didn't have enough songs.
* BookEnds: The title track and its reprise (with "A Day in the Life" being an encore)
* CallAndResponseSong: "With a Little Help From My Friends" and "Getting Better".
* CaptainObvious: "That the singer's going to sing a song..."
* ConceptAlbum: Besides the title tracks, it attempts to be like a concert.
* CrowningMusicOfAwesome
* DayInTheLife: [[TropeNamer "A Day in the Life"]]
* EpicRocking: "A Day in the Life", which has parts by both John and Paul
* FadingIntoTheNextSong: Both the title track and the reprise do this to the song that follows.
* FallingBass: "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds".
* GenreRoulette: Music hall, jazz, rock and roll, classical music, Indian music...
* GrowOldWithMe: "When I'm Sixty-Four" (and then you consider [[FunnyAneurysmMoment the fact]] that PaulMcCartney got into a divorce shortly before his 64th birthday)
* HitlessHitAlbum: Upon release, it had no singles issued (though "Strawberry Fields Forever"/"Penny Lane" were intended to be there, and the title track was a single in the 1970s).
* LastNoteNightmare: "Within You Without You", "A Day in the Life", and [[HiddenTrack the "Inner Groove" chatter that follows it]] (particularly because [[BrokenRecord it looped on the vinyl]]).
* LineOfSightName: The name Sgt. Pepper came from salt and pepper recipients.
* LyricalDissonance: "Getting Better", and the opening of "Good Morning, Good Morning"
* MatchCut: The cock cowing in "Good Morning, Good Morning" to the guitar of "Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band Reprise".
* MemeticOutfit: The marching band outfits from the cover.
* NonAppearingTitle: "A Day in the Life". The whole phrase "Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite" too.
* OneWomanSong: "Lovely Rita"
* TheParody / WholePlotReference: The band Big Daddy recorded the whole album as if it was made in the 1950s (i.e. "[[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JGpCqsc2SK8 Lucy In the Sky with Diamonds]]" InTheStyleOf JerryLeeLewis)
* ShoutOut: The cover, which got plenty of shout outs later.
* SubliminalSeduction: The inner groove.
* TearJerker: "She's Leaving Home"
* TitleOnlyChorus: "Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds",
* ThrowItIn: The alarm clock in "A Day in the Life" was originally just marking when it would change, but it fit well as the first lyric that follows is "Woke up, fell out of bed..."
* TriumphantReprise: "Sgt. Pepper's (Reprise)"
* TropeCodifier: For {{Concept Album}}s.
* TruckDriversGearChange: "Sgt. Pepper's (Reprise)"
* UncommonTime: "Good Morning Good Morning"
* WanderlustSong: "She's Leaving Home"
* WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs: While it ''was'' made under the influence, "Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds" is not an anachronism for "LSD", and "Fixing A Hole" isn't about heroin.
* WorldOfChaos: "Lucy in the Sky With Diamonds" even provides the quote for that page.
