* FunnyAneurysmMoment: The album's name, "Revolver", was a wordplay on a type of handgun and the revolving motion of a record as it spins on the turntable. Ironically, on 12/8/1980, Music/JohnLennon was shot with a .38 revolver outside the Dakota apartment building in Manhattan, New York, by Mark David Chapman, with John's shooting considered to be one of the most tragic assassinations to have ever occurred.

''Revolver'' is the seventh studio album by Music/TheBeatles, recorded in the spring of 1966 and released that August. It's considered a sequel of sorts to their previous album ''Music/RubberSoul'', as it continues in the band's foray into folk rock.

''Revolver'' was conceived during an unusually long break in the Fab Four's schedule in early 1966.[[note]]They were supposed to film their third movie, ''A Talent for Loving'', during this period, but the project was canceled.[[/note]] Their music had already started becoming more sophisticated on their previous album, ''Music/RubberSoul'', and they took advantage of the free time to develop their sound even further. Also, they spent the better part of three months in the studio (which was unheard of in TheSixties), giving them plenty of time to experiment.

* IntimidatingRevenueService: "Taxman", inspired by how the British government wanted to take too much out of George's income; at the time, the Beatles were being taxed at a marginal income tax rate of ''95%'' (a fairly common marginal rate for the top tax bracket in European countries at the time, and not the highest--some Nordics applied ''99%'' income tax brackets). This is noted in the lyrics ("One for you/Nineteen for me").
