** "Revolution 9". For some, it's brillant and revolutionary; for others, it's a horrid and irritating mess. Others split the difference, recognizing that it's brilliant and revolutionary but not actually liking it.

** "Wild Honey Pie," because ''seriously now.''
** 'Yer Blues', and deliberately so. Just check out the lyrics and the guitar solo.

* WhatDoYouMeanItWasntMadeOnDrugs: Partially subverted with the making of "Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da" which Music/JohnLennon, high on pot, growled he didn't like the song's preliminary slow tempo and instead went to a piano and bashed out the introduction in a louder and faster tempo. As it turns out, the rest of the band agreed that sounded better and they recorded the song with that tempo in mind.

* VindicatedByHistory: The album received mixed reviews on release but is now regarded by many fans as one of the Beatles' best albums. For instance, its GenreRoulette style was dismissed as being incoherent in its original release, but now is hailed as an engaging variety of songs of the band displaying its terrific versatility.

* NightmareFuel:
** The album in general has an overall harsher, unsettling quality to it. Instruments and vocals have weird textures, songs are played roughly (sometimes with proto-heavy metal distortion) and end in minor keys, songs end (or begin) in disjointed ways, [[LastNoteNightmare Last Note Nightmares]] abound. Many of the songs lyrically deal with death, violence and mortality in a way Beatles records hadn't before. Even the more lighthearted songs don't help matters. The RealitySubtext of the band falling apart is audible. It's the band's darkest album. There's also the fact the insane cult leader, UsefulNotes/CharlesManson, would twist the meanings of the songs into a megalomaniacal scheme to cause a race war through mass murder.

**As with most long double albums, there's the constant debate over if it would've been better as a single album, and if so which songs are filler and should be cut (it doesn't help that this is probably the album where the differences between John and Paul's writing stands out the most)
