"Revolution" is a song by The Beatles written by John Lennon and attributed to Lennon/McCartney. It was a number 1 hit in Australia.

The song was released in two distinctly different incarnations, the slow "Revolution 1", released on The Beatles (AKA the "White Album"), and the faster, electric "Revolution" (sometimes referred to as "Revolution 2"), released as the B-side to "Hey Jude". The song also exists as an early acoustic demo recorded in May 1968, which is closer to the single version. A third connected piece written by Lennon is the heavily experimental "Revolution 9", which appeared on the same side of the White Album as "Revolution 1". Although "Revolution 1" was the first to be recorded, it was released after "Revolution".
