Joe Jackson, Murry Wilson, Marvin Gaye Sr. and Other Awful Music Parents

Buzz 14:25PM EDT

Today marks the 50th anniversary of The Beach Boys' "Help Me Rhonda" reaching no. 1 on the Billboard charts. Although the song is of course a favorite of Boys fans, it's noted by more engaged followers of the group for its famous recording session. During the recording of the vocals, the father of Brian Wilson and the rest of the Wilson brothers, Murry Wilson, burst into the studio to lambast the group for what he perceived to be a lack of enthusiasm. The reel kept rolling as frontman Brian tried to calm his father down, and now copies of that version are coveted by those in-the-know. Murry was one of the most notorious parents in music history, working on his sons' behalf as a manager and coproducer, but ultimately making their lives worse because of it. He manipulated his children and reportedly hit Brian upside the head with a 2x4, causing the legendary musician to lose his hearing on that side of his head. Needless to say, many have blamed Brian's self-destructive habits and unhealthy obsession with music on Murry's callous handling. Here are five other notorious parents in the music industry.READ MORE

NME Ranks Best Beatles Songs with Panel of Stars; Dave Grohl, Pete Townshend and More Voted...What Won?

Buzz 08:41AM EDT

"The Best Beatles Songs" is a poll that you won't see Music Times touching with a ten-foot pole. One factor is laziness: There are just so many hits from the band...sorting them would be a nightmare. However, the major reason would be our cowardice: When a band's discography is so epic, regardless of what track you place at the top, the armies representing every other single in the group's catalogue will lash out. That's why we left the task to NME, a more well-connected publication in the band's home of the UK.READ MORE
