The Beatles released a massive amount of albums over the course of their careers. Their music ranged from pop to rock to some forms of psychedelic music. Either way, fans will of course have a lot to say when it comes to picking out their favourite song.
Although fans have certainly got their work cut out for them in picking their favourite songs, the band had a similarly difficult job.
John Lennon and Paul McCartney wrote most of the band’s songs, meaning they had the most at stake in crafting the band’s image.
However in an surprising announcement, Lennon actually revealed which of his Beatles albums is his favourite.
Speaking about his career as a whole back in 1971, Lennon explained that his favourite album was actually one of the later ones.
Yes, one of the fab four’s favourite albums is actually the White Album – which includes such hits as Helter Skelter, Yer Blues, and Back in the U.S.S.R.
He told Rolling Stone magazine: “[Paul] wanted [The White Album] to be more a group thing, which really means more Paul.”
Lennon then went on to confess: “So he never liked that album.”
The album itself saw the band turning to some of their rock roots, Lennon explained, which is why he prefers it to others.
“What we’re trying to do is rock ‘n roll,” he said. “‘With less of your philosorock,’ is what we’re saying to ourselves.
“And get on with rocking because rockers is what we really are.
“You can give me a guitar, stand me up in front of a few people. Even in the studio, if I’m getting into it, I’m just doing my old bit… not quite doing Elvis Legs but doing my equivalent.
“It’s just natural. Everybody says we must do this and that but our thing is just rocking. You know, the usual gig.”

He added: “That’s what this new record is about. Definitely rocking.”
This isn’t the first time the band spoke out about their time performing and recording together.
It was recently revealed Ringo Starr actually secretly quit the band after a spat with the rest of the team.
“I felt I wasn’t playing great,” he explained, on talking about leaving the band in secret.
“And I also felt that the other three were really happy and I was an outsider.”
Despite this, he went on to talk it out with Lennon, as he recalled: “I went to see John [Lennon], who had been living in my apartment in Montagu Square with Yoko since he moved out of Kenwood.
“I said: ‘I’m leaving the group because I’m not playing well and I feel unloved and out of it, and you three are really close.’ And John said: ‘I thought it was you three!'”
Thankfully, the band pleaded for him to return to the band, which he ultimately did.
