08 - The Beatles, "Helter Skelter" (1968)
It’s safe to say Ringo Starr wasn’t the only Beatle with “blistahs” on his “fingahs” after jamming ceaselessly on this White Album standout, the heaviest tune in the band’s catalog. This song was meant to one-up the Who after Paul McCartney read an interview with Pete Townshend where he called “I Can See for Miles” the loudest and dirtiest song the Who had ever recorded.
