Wow, forgot about Monkey Man, a wicked tune! Glad to see someone else mentioned "Sway", one of their best IMO, overshadowed by the hits.

You've probably not listened to enough of the Stones' catalogue therefore.

What I've heard I've not liked at all. Not my bag.

 :o

Sixties, British Invasion, Garage Rock, Blues, Soul, Blues-Rock, Punk Rock, that's my bag.

;)

Attention Stones fans who are also Ramones fans: I just picked up an issue of Mojo magazine with the Ramones on the cover that includes a CD called "1,2,3,4! The Roots of the Ramones" which is an awesome compilation of songs that inspired the Ramones.  But the first track is something I've never heard before as a lifelong Ramones fan. Apparently the Ramones were going to record a cover of the Stone's "Street Fighting Man", but Joey was ill that day in the studio, so Walter Lure of Johnny Thunders and the Heartbreakers stepped in on vocals, backed by Johnny, Dee Dee and Tommy, and the result is an awesome punk rock cover of "Street Fighting Man".
