On WAY the other end of the spectrum Same thing. One of the best and well known intros to any pop song.

And somewhere in the middle there is this riff:



Certainly among the most famous
The difference between martyrdom & suicide is press coverage...

Absolutely. GREAT song. Saw B.O.C back in I think 77". Great show with laser lights.

Hey Meph.

I LOVE this song as well as the band. Unfortunately this is a huge song for "baby boomers,checking out. Pretty depressing but I was SOO there like 30 years ago. BOC  R7R Hall of Fame.

Yeah, I've noticed the same thing, however, I like to remember it for its' glory days of rock sound. I agree, BOC SHOULD be in the Hall Of Fame.

Satisfaction is the classic! Hearing it for the firsttime in 1965 was electrifying.



Keith Richards' actually envisioned his fuzz guitar riff as one for horns, but the other Stones convinced him it was just right on fuzz guitar.
