* HiddenTrack: "Her Majesty". Originally, this was meant to be part of the 'medley' between 'Mean Mr. Mustard' and 'Polythene Pam'. The chord at the beginning is the ending note to the former track. {{Paul McCartney}} didn't like the way it sounded, and so it was cut off from the album. The tape operator, John Kurlander, followed the record company's guidelines of never throwing anything recorded by The Beatles out, and secretly snuck the song back onto the album after "The End". Paul liked it. So it stayed.

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.
