Available on: CDs in bold. This Beatles version of this song was infamously used in a Nike television ad, the first time an original Beatles version had been heard in a commercial.
Fans were in an uproar over the "selling out" of the band's good name, blaming Michael Jackson who owned a majority of the Beatles song publishing, having bought it from behind Paul McCartney's back and Yoko Ono who was required to sign off on the ad as well, being executor of John's estate. The ad was soon pulled.
John remained adamant for the rest of his life about the non-violent form of revolution he preached in this song, later only regretting that he mentioned "Chairman Mao" in one verse as a dig against Communism. Mao Zedong was Chairman of the People's Republic of China from and an influential figure on the world stage. Despite the title and theme, the word "revolution" is heard only in the first line of this song, and never repeated.
