The ending of "Well, Well, Well". The line "I don't believe in Lennon said in the last interview he ever gave that this was deliberate, meant to symbolize that he had come through all of his issues. I was the Walrusbut now I'm John.
Careful with That Axe: John screams frequently on "Well Well Well" and "Mother". Lennon sings in an empty, monotone way about his mother's death in "My Mummy's Dead".
Dark and Troubled Past: A large theme on the album. Desperately Looking for a Purpose in Life: A huge theme, never so clear as in "God" where Lennon rejects all kinds of false icons, but eventually states he believes him himself and his partner and "that's reality. John and Yoko are featured on the album cover, but too far away to be immediately recognizable.
The Future Will Be Better: Getting Crap Past the Radar: See The Anti-Nihilist above. Arguably not as tracked on the radar as things like "She looked so beautiful I could eat her" at the time.
One track has this simple title. I Am A Humanitarian: The subject is the death of Lennon's mother. He concludes he just believes in himself and Ono.
The concluding section of "God" is essentially Lennon's admission that a form of this had occurred to him while he was in the Beatles, and also double as his very public attempt to reconstruct his own identity. It also borders very closely on That Man Is Deadbut doesn't quite get there.
Lennon said the song was his attempt to break down the myth that "the Beatles were God" - again, see The Anti-Nihilist above. It's also a Grief Song for his mother, as mentioned above.
They hate you if you're clever and they despise a fool' Till you're so fucking crazy you can't follow their rules. The entire album is aimed at the fans, the Beatles, everyone and everything who ever crossed him, pissed him off or that he had ever believed in over the course of his life to that point except for Yoko.
Real Life Writes the Plot: Much of the album dealt with Lennon's past and especially the then-recent break-up of The Beatles. The two have almost identical covers - the only difference being Lennon laying on Ono on his cover and Ono laying on Lennon on her cover - and both records were recorded at the same time with the same musicians and studio personnel aside from a live song on Yoko's album.
While most contemporary reviewers savaged it with two major exceptions being critic Lester Bangs and Billboard magazine, which called it "visionary"it ultimately ended up Vindicated by History and is considered a significant influence on modern female alternative rockers such as Sonic Youth 's Kim Gordon, The Bs ' Kate Pierson and Cindy Wilson, and Hole's Courtney Love.
This is a reference to Guy Fawkes Night, a British holiday. Sliding Scale of Idealism vs. See also Lost in Character above.
From a recording quality standpoint. The reference to "Zimmerman" in "God" might be one, as Bob Dylan doesn't appreciate most people calling him by that nameand most people have to get his permission to use it in his presence - but maybe not or at least not as much as it would have been from most peoplesince he and Lennon were on close terms and significantly influenced each other's music.
Lennon's delivery is pretty dismissive, though plus, its context is a long list of things and people Lennon doesn't believe in. Meanwhile, one of the few people known to have Dylan's permission to use the name "Zimmerman" in his presence is President Barack Obama.
The album is mostly guitar, bass, drums, piano, and vocals. This is a particularly sparse production by the standards of Phil Spectorwho's known for his "wall of sound". Occasionally Zig-Zaggedthough, as while songs generally have simple arrangements, some of them deviate from verse-chorus-bridge format - "God" has three discrete parts with nothing recognisable as a chorus, though its second section repeats a simple melody over a three-chord pattern fifteen times.The performance started with Grohl casually introducing keyboardist Rami Jaffee as he was playing the familiar opening chords to John Lennon’s timeless classic hit.
The audience sure was taken by surprise when instead of singing a cover of “Imagine” Grohl proceeds to whip out some classic .
