Holy crap not Satisfaction again I’ll be good please make it stop

They say ya can’t win ‘em all. That’s a mathematical certainty even for wildly successful bands. Every now and then even the greats become the Sultans of Suck, if for no other reason than to keep those full-of-themselves rockstars humble. The Universe knows what it’s doing.

So, without further ado or off-topic rambling(for once), here’s what the best sound like at their worst.

The Beatles

Wild Honey Pie

What in the deep-fried Fabs fuck is this crap? Who authorized this? Did someone chloroform George Martin? That’s the only logical explanation I can think of to explain Wild Honey Pie’s existence.

Mr. Martin had gone on record saying that he thought the White Album would’ve been better as a pared-down single album, and I definitely agree. The crap like Honey Pie and Revolution #9 detract from the brilliance of While My Guitar Gently Weeps and I’m So Tired.
