1. A Kick ass Beatles song about an amusement park ride.

2. Charles Manson's messed up belief that the world would end with a race war between blacks and whites where the blacks would kill all of the whites(Except for Manson and his "family" who would be hiding in the bottomless pit by then). Manson states that the problem with the blacks in control is that they wouldn't know what to do because all they've ever known how to do was what "whitey" tole 'em to. So they would seek out Charlie in the bottomless pit and make him king of the world.

3.Pure and total chaos.
1.
When I get to the bottom I go back to the top of the slide
Where I stop and I turn and I go for a ride
Till I get to the bottom and I see you again.
Do you, don't you want me to love you
I'm coming down fast but I'm miles above you
Tell me tell me tell me come on tell me the answer
You may be a lover but you ain't no dancer.

2."Blackie won't know what to do after he's killed whitey, so he'll seek us out. When he finds us he'll be like 'massah, we don't know what to do' and I'll take blackie by the hand and rub his wooley little head and say 'it'll all be okay' and they'll make me their king." ~Charles Manson~

In disorderly haste; confusedly; pell-mell.
Haphazardly.

Carelessly hurried and confused.
Haphazard.
Helter-skelter is what happens if you lit a fire cracker in a room full of animals like cats. The rapid reaction and confused haste to get the fuck out.

An amazing song that not only proves that The Beatles were more than just a pop band, but also proves that Paul McCartney could rock out if he felt like it.
The Beatles have many great songs! Helter Skelter is one of them!

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.
