I think Maxwell's Silver Hammer was also considered granny music.

What?!?!?!? What granny (other than me, obviously) would want to listen to a song about someone (presumably a kid, considering he goes to school) whacking people on the head with a hammer to kill them?

"Granny shit music" was a description applied to just three songs during John's 1970 Rolling Stone interview, @TheWalrusWasBrian -- Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da Maxwell's Silver Hammer  and Teddy Boy . If you look at them, they are all story songs that John felt they'd spent too long working on in the studio because of Paul's perfectionism.

Many similar-styled songs are often suggested as being songs that John considered "Granny shit" -- possibly correctly -- but John only definitely applied it to just those three songs.
