    John Lennon Signed "Helter Skelter" Contract. "Helter Skelter" was one of the fiercest and most brutal rock songs in the Beatles' catalog; Composer Paul McCartney has said that the track was written and recorded with the aim of making the noisiest, rawest hard rock song possible. While this wasn't an area the Beatles explored often, "Helter Skelter" can hold its own against the heaviest outings by the heaviest groups of the era. Featured here is a double-sided contract, dated October 15, 1968, establishing the royalties for the song between Maclen Music Ltd. and writers McCartney and John Lennon, signed by the latter on the reverse side in black ink. In great condition with some overall light tanning and a one-inch tear and small stain near the bottom edge. With COA from PSA/DNA.
