Rolling Stones – The Anti-Beatles
The Beatles showed up to the United States in suits and ties, looking clean cut.
Not the Rolling Stones. From day one, the Rolling Stones offered an edgier, wilder, more explosive element to the British Invasion.
If the Beatles initially were guys parents thought they wanted their daughters to date; the Rolling Stones were the guys that made parents want to arm their daughters with chastity belts. Their music lit a fire under the youth of America. Made us want to pump our fists, dance, and tell the older generation to piss off.
Mick Jagger and Keith Richards formed a writing duo and guitarist/singer partnership that has survived 176 years and counting. What’s more, Mick is still dancing around the stage like a 20-year-old, and despite his notorious drug use, Keith Richards is still alive and picking.

The Rolling Stones – (I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction
The Stones played hard and kicked ass. (I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction captured the raw energy and undeniable talent of the Rolling Stones, led by Mick Jaggard and Keith Richards.
The Rolling Stones – Angie
Look how young the Rolling Stones are in this video. Angie was one of my favorite songs as a kid. Songs like this Angie also demonstrate, despite their bad boy reputation, they occasionally had a softer side.
The Rolling Stones – You Can’t Always Get What You Want
The Rolling Stones perhaps touched the greatest variety of people with You Can’t Always Get What You Want. Listen to the talent on stage for this performance at Twickenham Stadium. What a great song!
