27% Chose This As Their Least Favorite Beatles Album

The Beatles have recorded many great albums, all of which will go down in history as music that helped pioneer and influence much of the music we have today. Many critics and fans' lists of the best albums ever recorded frequently include Beatles albums. Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums of All Time currently includes "Abbey Road" at No. 5 while Louder's 50 Greatest Rock Albums Ever has "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" at No. 7. When it comes to narrowing down the catalog to strictly Beatles albums, critics and fans usually have a solid — yet, still debatable — list when selecting their best works.

When Grunge readers were asked to rank their least favorite Beatles albums, the polling results were very interesting. "Abbey Road" came in last with 10.76% of the vote followed by "Let It Be" with 12.35% of the vote. "A Hard Day's Night" had 14.53% while "Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band" came in at third with 16.42% of the vote. Coming in second was "Help"! at 18.75%.

Yellow Submarine is ranked the least favorite Beatles' album

The least favorite Beatles' album was "Yellow Submarine" with 27.18% of the vote. The Beatles' album "Yellow Submarine" was originally released in Britain and the U.S. in January 1969 and was used as the soundtrack to an animated film of the same name, per The Beatles official site. According to Rolling Stone, when the band realized they didn't have enough songs to fill an album, George Harrison wrote "Only a Northern Song" in an hour. The song "All You Need Is Love" had already been recorded, and, of course, "Yellow Submarine" was also reused as the title track for the album. Surprisingly, "Yellow Submarine" had been recorded for "Revolver," which many fans and critics often choose as one of the band's best albums.

The song was written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney and featured Ringo Starr on lead vocals. It would also become one of Starr's signature Beatles songs as well as a favorite among fans. "Yellow Submarine" was originally issued when "The Beatles" was still No. 1 on the charts, however, it would reach No. 3 in Britain and No. 2 in the U.S. Even though it's been ranked as the least favorite, the album is a classic and an important part of the Beatles' music to this day.
