The famous Manson family murders in the summer of ’69 resulted in a TV movie in 1976, based on Vincent Bugliosi’s best-selling book ‘Helter Skelter’.

The Beatles refused to allow any of their songs to be in it, so the makers had to settle for a few sound-a-likes instead. But Capitol – never shy when it came to making money – released a promotional copy of ‘Helter Skelter’ to the radio-stations, intending it to be an advert for the upcoming ‘Rock ‘N’ Roll Music’ LP. The song ended up getting so much airplay, however, that they decided to release it as a fully-fledged single too, but, recognising that it was in very poor taste, put it out on the back of another song.
