Along with other tracks from the White Album, "Helter Skelter" was interpreted by cult leader Charles Manson as a message predicting inter-racial war in the US.
Manson titled his vision of this uprising after the song. Paul McCartney was inspired to write "Helter Skelter" after reading an interview with the Who 's Pete Townshend where he described their September single, " I Can See for Miles ", as the loudest, rawest, dirtiest song the Who had ever recorded.
He said he then wrote "Helter Skelter" "to be the most raucous vocal, the loudest drums, et cetera". Umm, that came about just 'cause I'd read a review of a record which said, "and this group really got us wild, there's echo on everything, they're screaming their heads off.
Pity they've done it. Must be great — really screaming record. It wasn't rough and screaming and tape echo at all. So I thought, "Oh well, we'll do one like that, then. So we did it like that, 'cos I like noise. In British English , a helter skelter is a fairground attraction consisting of a tall spiral slide winding round a tower, but the phrase can also mean chaos and disorder.
This is followed by a prolonged ending during which the performance stops, picks up again, fades out, fades back in, and then fades out one final time amidst a cacophony of sounds.
The only chords used in the song are E7, G and A, with the first of these being played throughout the extended ending. Musicologist Walter Everett comments on the musical form: "There is no dominant and little tonal function; organized noise is the brief. During the 18 July session, the Beatles recorded take 3 of the song, lasting 27 minutes and 11 seconds,  although this version is slower, differing greatly from the album version.
Sometimes you just had to shake out the jams. On 9 September, 18 takes lasting approximately five minutes each were recorded, with the last one featured on the original LP. According to music critic Tim Riley , although McCartney and Lennon had diverged markedly as songwriters during this period, the completed track can be seen as a "competitive apposition" to Lennon's " Everybody's Got Something to Hide Except Me and My Monkey ".
He says that whereas Lennon "submerges in scatalogical contradictions" in his song, "Helter Skelter" "ignites a scathing, almost violent disorder". In his contemporary review for International Times , Barry Miles described "Helter Skelter" as "probably the heaviest rocker on plastic today",  while the NME ' s Alan Smith found it "low on melody but high on atmosphere" and "frenetically sexual", adding that its pace was "so fast they all only just about keep up with themselves".
John [ sic ] then blurts out with excruciating torment: 'I got blisters on my fingers! In his review for Rolling Stone , Jann Wenner wrote that the Beatles had been unfairly overlooked as hard rock stylists, and he grouped the song with " Birthday " and "Everybody's Got Something to Hide Except Me and My Monkey" as White Album tracks that captured "the very best traditional and contemporary elements in rock and roll".
He described "Helter Skelter" as "excellent", highlighting its "guitar lines behind the title words, the rhythm guitar track layering the whole song with that precisely used fuzztone, and Paul's gorgeous vocal". Charles Manson told his followers that several White Album songs, particularly "Helter Skelter",  were part of the Beatles' coded prophecy of an apocalyptic war in which racist and non-racist whites would be manoeuvred into virtually exterminating each other over the treatment of blacks.
As the only remaining whites, they would rule blacks, who, as the vision went, would be incapable of running the United States. Los Angeles Deputy District Attorney Vincent Bugliosi , who led the prosecution of Manson and four of his followers who acted on Manson's instruction in the Tate-LaBianca murders , named his best-selling book about the murders Helter Skelter. Lennon responded that his comments would be of no use, since he had no hand in writing "Helter Skelter".
Bugliosi's book was the basis for the television film Helter Skelter. The film's popularity in the US ensured that the song, and the White Album generally, received a new wave of attention.
As a result, Capitol planned to issue "Helter Skelter" as the A-side of the single from Rock 'n' Roll Music but relented, realising that to exploit its association with Manson would be in poor taste.
It has nothing to do with anything, and least of all to do with me. Reflecting on "Helter Skelter" and its appropriation by the Manson Family in his authorised biography, Many Years from Now , McCartney said, "Unfortunately, it inspired people to do evil deeds" and that the song had acquired "all sorts of ominous overtones because Manson picked it up as an anthem".
He adds: "While ' Revolution ' posited a forthcoming unity as far as social change, 'Helter Skelter' signified a chaotic and overwhelming sense of falling apart occurring throughout the world politically and, not unrelated, the falling apart of the Beatles as a working band and the counterculture dream they represented. Stolworthy described it as "one of the best rock songs ever recorded" and concluded: "The fiercest, most blistering track that arguably paved the way for heavy metal is far removed from the tame love songs people were used to from [McCartney].
Ian MacDonald dismissed "Helter Skelter" as "ridiculous, [with] McCartney shrieking weedily against a massively tape-echoed backdrop of out-of-tune thrashing", and said that in their efforts to embrace heavy rock, the Beatles "comically overreached themselves, reproducing the requisite bulldozer design but on a Dinky Toy scale".
He added: "Few have seen fit to describe this track as anything other than a literally drunken mess. He says that it becomes "a bit dull after two minutes" and, after its laboured attempts at an ending, is "redeemed only" by Starr's closing remark.
Doyle Greene states that the Beatles and Manson are "permanently connected in pop-culture consciousness" as a result of Manson's interpretation of "Helter Skelter", "Piggies" and other tracks from the White Album.
Since the producers of the film Helter Skelter were denied permission to use the Beatles recording, the song was re-recorded for the soundtrack by the band Silverspoon.
Nikki Sixx , the band's bassist, recalled that "Helter Skelter" appealed to them through its guitars and lyrics, but also because of the Manson murders and the song's standing as a "real symbol of darkness and evil". In , a U2 recording was used as the opening track on their album Rattle and Hum. They also performed the song on their world tour promoting their fourth album Standing on the Shoulder of Giants in the early s.
A live version was included on their live album Familiar to Millions. Also in , Beatallica recorded a parody called "Helvester of Skelter", which also was a parody of the Metallica song " Harvester of Sorrow ".
Since , McCartney has frequently performed "Helter Skelter" in concert. In the last tours, the song has been generally inserted on the third encore, which is the last time the band enters the stage.
It is usually the last but one song, performed after " Yesterday " and before the final medley including " The End ". According to Mark Lewisohn  and Walter Everett: . From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
