The album was recorded when there was still tension amongst the band members, but they put their differences aside for one last time. As a result, everyone got to shine with Music/GeorgeHarrison proving he was every bit as good a songwriter as John and Paul with two #1 hits by him: "Something" and "Here Comes The Sun". Music/JohnLennon had a chart topper himself, "Come Together", while Music/PaulMcCartney arranged the perfect GrandFinale for the band on side B and Music/RingoStarr created a children's classic and hit with "Octopus's Garden."

* UrExample: It's commonly believed that "I Want You (She's So Heavy)" started the genre of doom metal, which would become [[TropeMaker made and codified]] by BlackSabbath on their debut album the following year. Harrison's long hair and denim outfit on the cover also codified the classic metalhead look.

* AbbeyRoadCrossing: The TropeMaker. It was a quick photo session, with the photographer snapping a half-dozen pictures over about 10 minutes while the band walked back and forth across the street outside their studio. It resulted in a trope and one of the most famous album covers of all time.

'''''Abbey Road''''' is the twelfth studio album by Music/TheBeatles, released in 1969. It is their last recorded album, but was released as their penultimate offering before the band released ''Music/LetItBe'' and eventually split up in 1970.

* DoesNotLikeShoes: Paul is walking barefeet on the album cover. He told journalists that he just did this because it was hot that day, but some believers in the "Paul Is Dead" theory believed it was a reference to a maffia symbol for "death".

** The band saying goodbye with their final medley, "Golden Slumbers" to "Carry That Weight" to "The End", and the listener has got be sitting there thinking OMG it's all over... and then "Her Majesty" comes up as a hidden track, a sweet little snippet of a song that comes across as a lark, with a smile on the lads' faces, and you realize they're leaving but they're leaving on a happy note.

* NoEnding: Both sides of the album. "I Want You (She's So Heavy)" ends abruptly in the middle of a riff, after three minutes of repeating the same sequence of chords. John Lennon told engineer Geoff Emerick to "cut it right there", and Emerick did. "Her Majesty" was originally slated between "Mean Mr. Mustard" and "Polythene Pam", but the band decided to delete it. Tape engineer John Kurlander clipped it out of the master, cutting out the last crashing guitar chord of "Mean Mr. Mustard" along with "Her Majesty", but missing the last note of "Her Majesty", which was left at the beginning of "Polythene Pam". Though told to discard it, EMI's policy was to never throw away a Beatles recording, so Kurlander then spliced "Her Majesty" onto the end of the master tape after 14 seconds of silence, creating a Hidden Track that ends one note too soon. The band liked the effect and left it that way. (The cut was a test-run of the crossfading and editing sequence, on rough mixes, not the final edit - if you notice, in the album version the final chord of "Mean Mr. Mustard" is also missing but because the new sequence makes it redundant; the final chord of "Her Majesty" is totally absent though. The "Her Majesty" part, however, is the original clip tacked on to the final master just the same it was in the rough edit.)
