* ScheduleSlip: Having recorded two albums a year for their whole career up to that time, the 10 month gap between the release of ''{{Music/Revolver}}'' and ''Music/SgtPeppersLonelyHeartsClubBand'' raised eyebrows. But the success of the latter convinced record companies that allowing performers more time to perfect their music was a wiser strategy.
* ScrewedByTheLawyers: Due to a copyright claim by UMG_MK, Their Vevo account from YouTube has been terminated.
** Even the cartoon series was taken down by UMG_MK. The episodes were posted by [=McCKLENN=]. UMG_MK claimed the audio track and gave him three copyright strikes, That means he was terminated from Youtube.

* ExecutiveMeddling: Glyn Johns took the tapes of the "Get Back" sessions and produced the kind of mix which the Beatles envisioned. Then Allen Klein heard that mix and didn't like it, so he called in PhilSpector.

* CashCowFranchise: During the sixties and since 1989. A re-release by the Beatles is as newsworthy as a new release by {{U2}}.

* {{Corpsing}}: Paul cracks up during the second verse of "Maxwell's Silver Hammer" because John mooned him in the recording studio as he sang the line "so he waits behind".



* CreatorBacklash: John Lennon ''hated'' a lot of the songs he wrote for the Beatles. In some cases this is due to ValuesDissonance - he particularly detested "Run for Your Life" for its severe misogyny, which is perfectly understandable. For a lot of them it just seemed he was being churlish though.

** Everyone except Paul [=McCartney=] hated doing "Maxwell's Silver Hammer" because of all the time they spent working on it (it took almost a month to record). Lennon even called it "Paul's granny shit" at one point.

* HeyItsThatVoice:
** "Cinders and ashes!" said WesternAnimation/ThomasTheTankEngine, "Ringo Starr narrated our TV series!" "That's right, Thomas," replied the Fat Controller "And he's doing a sterling job of it. Though it might have strange for the parents."
** Although not nearly as strange as (if you're American) growing up watching the show and later [[PlayingAgainstType learning about the career]] of [[Creator/GeorgeCarlin the guy who replaced Ringo.]]

*** Said album was initially planned to be issued back in 1963, but those same financial difficulties, coupled with a lack of chart success with the two singles they issued so far, led to the album being shelved until Beatlemania hit in early 1964. Those difficulties, which involved improper payment of royalties[[labelnote:*]]said improper payments led to the Four Seasons suing the label and jumping ship to Philips Records[[/labelnote]], forced the label to give the band away to UsefulNotes/{{Philadelphia}}-based label Sway Records[[labelnote:*]]a small-time label mostly famous for Freddy Cannon[[/labelnote]], which issued the "She Loves You" single to a similar lack of initial success; by the end of 1963, it had only sold about 1000 copies and never charted in ''Billboard''.

** Early on, the Beatles were signed to UsefulNotes/{{Chicago}}-based label [=VeeJay=] Records[[note]]best known for early Chicago {{soul}} acts such as the Impressions, Betty Everett and their first non-black act in Music/FrankieValliAndTheFourSeasons[[/note]] as their initial American label, and released their 1964 American debut "Introducing...The Beatles". However, financial problems with [=VeeJay=] led to the label dropping the band after that initial album (the label closed down two years later).

*** Related to another great "what if?": what would have happened if Capitol Records had released any of the Parlophone singles they'd passed on in 1962-63? Would Beatlemania have launched early, or would they have flopped?

[[labelnote:Answer]]Capitol Records of Canada ''did'' release those records in 1963, with the same lack of initial success [=VeeJay=] in the U.S. had -- the first couple of singles sold under 200 copies on their initial run. However, sales did go up to high levels a few months before "I Want to Hold Your Hand" was issued by Capitol in the U.S.[[/labelnote]]
