Most successful song

All of their songs have been successful save a few mistakes, but none more than sympathy for the devil. It was a crazy time in the seventies and this was the song to match.

My favorite

My favorite song by The Rolling Stones is Paint it Black. I love the use of the sitar, it was actually the first top ten single to use a sitar. I also love the raw emotions behind it.


The first time the two bands met was on April 14 1963. From then on it was a fun rivalry, including the dueling songs, I Wanna Hold Your Hand and I Wanna Be Your Man.
