*** Lennon [[WordOfGod also claimed]] that both "You Can't Do That" and "When I Get Home" (both on ''Music/AHardDaysNight'') were his attempts to emulate American R&B star WilsonPickett. "Run For Your Life" seemed to be a throwaway song written to fill out side 2 of ''Rubber Soul'', with an opening line stolen from "Baby Let's Play House" (a blues song popularized by Music/ElvisPresley) and the rest of the song branching out from there. It and ''[[Music/{{Help}}]]!''[='=]s "It's Only Love" were considered "{{Old Shame}}s" by Lennon, partially over the lyrics, which embarrassed him.

* LicensedGame: ''The Beatles: RockBand'', which came out on September 9, 2009; it's managed to attract [[BrokenBase split opinions]], most detractors taking the ItsEasySoItSucks approach. The game features UnlockableContent in the form of picture/video galleries that are accompanied by band trivia/history.

Four young lads from UsefulNotes/{{Liverpool}} who released some albums in TheSixties, and are credited by many for changing the face of rock and popular music, while for others they were at least major pioneers of the new style of pop rock, and were a major force of TheBritishInvasion. For many people, they are also the face of the 1960s. Which is not bad work, really.

''Music/SgtPeppersLonelyHeartsClubBand'' is considered by many critics to be one of the greatest rock albums of all time; it also has one of the most parodied and homaged album covers in the history of music. The simpler image on the cover of ''Music/AbbeyRoad'' of [[AbbeyRoadCrossing the band walking in near-lockstep across the street]] is a close competitor for the most homaged cover, as is the half-shadowed band portrait that was used on the British album ''Music/WithTheBeatles'' and its American equivalent/{{Macekre}} ''Meet The Beatles''.

* SeriesFauxnale: Throughout their career, the press perpetuated rumours that the band was on the verge of splitting, particularly around the ''Music/{{Revolver}}''/[[Music/SgtPeppersLonelyHeartsClubBand Pepper]]'' period. Interestingly enough, when the band went in to finally record ''Music/AbbeyRoad'' in 1969, no one officially stated that it was the last album the members were going to make together, even though they were considerably happier operating under the presumption that it was.

* 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]]).
