One of the best rock songs ever, could be argued as the origin of heavy metal. One of the Beatle's 1000 amazing songs, showcasing their ability to transcend genre.
I'm listening to Helter Skelter for the 200th time in a row...

Originally a song off the White Album by The Beatles, Helter Skelter's meaning changed in 1969 by the infamous Charles Manson. Manson had a theory that Helter Skelter would be when the entire black race would kill all white people. Charles Manson used this theory as an advantage by telling youngsters that he and his gang were going to hide out deep in the desert where they would be able to hide out during the process of Helter Skelter.
Charlie then claimed that Helter Skelter must happen immediately, so he told some of his family members ( Charles "Tex" Watson, Linda Kasabian, Susan Atkins, Leslie Van Houten, Patricia Krenwinkel, etc.) to go out and slay random caucasions. Charlie felt that by killing the white people (who included Sharon Tate) and make it appear that the black race committed these acts, then Helter Skelter would begin.
Charles and his family members were caught in the act and are sentenced to life in prison. But, Helter Skelter never occured and to most people today, it is only known as a lovely song by The Beatles.
Charles Manson scared youngsters into thinking Helter Skelter was going to occur in 1969.

Helter skelter, or "I like Helter Skelter" is a phrase for mass-scapegoating of one party. Yoko syndrome is a form of I like helter skelter where the latest party is blamed. Helter skelter is a fairground ride that spirrals downwards, and when someone is scapegoated substantially, even to the point where minor problems with them are turned into reasons for something failing.
I like helter skelter.

A book written in the 1950's or 60's that inspired Charles Manson, inadvretantly, to form a cult, the "Manson Family", in which, he was not only the "father", but "God". This led to the "Manson Murders" in 1968, and the Manson trials throughout the 1970's. these trials inclued Sharon Tate and others. The entire fiasco took place in an just outside Los Angeles, Califorina.
