* RecursiveReality: They named their last recorded album ''Music/AbbeyRoad'' after the street on which the studio (then called EMI) is located. The studio was consequently renamed "Abbey Road Studios" after the album (the sign above the door is a representation of [[AbbeyRoadCrossing the album cover]]).

*** Possibly unintentional, but ''Ain't She Sweet'' appears twice on the Anthology albums -- on the first disc of Anthology 1 and the last disc of Anthology 3.

** "Rocky Raccoon": At the beginning and the end of the song, he's checking into a hotel room and finding "Gideons' Bible".

** With the Beatles being as popular and as influential as they were, there are literally more of these than can be counted. For example, ''WesternAnimation/ThePowerpuffGirls'' episode "Meet the Beat Alls" is basically a protracted parody of every bit of Beatles trivia that the writer could remember. Also, SgtPepperShoutOut and AbbeyRoadCrossing can usually be considered subtropes of this.

The legacy lives on. An installment of ''RockBand'' was made featuring Beatles songs and ''only'' Beatles songs. Not quite coincidentally, the entire catalogue has been remastered and was re-released on CD the same day. After years of legal disputes having to do with the "Apple" label, iTunes has added Beatles music in 2010!

** The Beatles also covered the Larry Williams song "Bad Boy" solely to fill out the US-only album ''Beatles VI''. The song would not see British release until 1966.

** Sometimes John composed songs just because he didn't have enough in the record (such as "Run for Your Life" in ''Music/RubberSoul'', "Being for the Benefit of Mr. Kite" in ''Sgt. Pepper's''. Lennon later admitted to hating "Run for Your Life" perhaps more than any other song he had ever written).
** And of course, there's "Music/TheWhiteAlbum". George Martin even asked them to trim it down to one album since he felt there was too much filler, but the band didn't listen, being eager to fulfill their album commitment to the EMI record label as quickly as possible.

* BaroquePop: Most of their later output, especially Music/TheWhiteAlbum.
* Creator/TheBeatGeneration: The name of the band was partially inspired by the Beats and Lennon in particular named JackKerouac as an influence. Creator/AllenGinsberg later on became friends with the band, with Paul [=McCartney=] actually playing guitar on one of Ginsberg's albums.
* BeYourself: "All You Need Is Love" tells us that "''Nothing you can do, but you can learn how to be you in time / It's easy!''"

* BiggerThanJesus[=/=]BlasphemousBoast: The TropeNamer came from a John Lennon interview in which [[BeamMeUpScotty he did NOT say]] "we're bigger than Jesus" but rather "we're ''more popular'' than Jesus now". Given the intensity of Beatlemania, that was a defensible statement. It still garnered a great amount of ill will from the kinds of people who weren't inclined to like The Beatles in the first place--mostly religious fundamentalist types from the southern States. The protests that dogged The Beatles over their American tour played no small part in convincing them to give up touring for good.

** According to [[http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-34766693 Giles Martin]], when he remixed the "1" albm and several other tracks in 5.1 stereo to make the "1+" re-release, a bad mistake was made in the original (2.0) stereo mix of "Strawberry Fields Forever"; John's voice is supposed to have a Mellotron pulse under it, but in the stereo mix the voice and Mellotron got separated, so that mix sounds thinner than the mono mix.

* 1977 - ''Live! At the Star-Club in Hamburg, Germany; 1962'' [[note]]A bootleg album recorded by the leader of another of the Star-Club's acts, supposedly with the permission of the Beatles, but this was later bitterly disputed as they were all drunk at the time and the recording quality (even after being professionally cleaned up) was terrible. This album saw two releases, the second despite an attempt by the Beatles to block its release, but a third release was successfully and permanently blocked.[[/note]]
