I'm so glad "Some Girls" was released 40 years ago. Can you imagine what the pc police would have done to the Stones? They would have ended their career over some of the lyrics.

"Black girls just wanna f*ck all night long, and I don't have that much jam"

Hardly. The Rolling Stones have made a career out of rankling the straights/polite society from day one. At the start of their careers it was pretty easy. Being arrested for public urination with Mick Jagger remarking "We piss anywhere man!" served to get them front page coverage. But such shenanigans soon seemed very tame and they had to set the bar higher.

Ergo dressing up in drag for the rear sleeve of Have You Seen Your Mother, Baby, Standing in the Shadow? in 1966:



And later that same year Brian Jones modelling an SS uniform in Anita's company:



Talk about frothing outrage in the press!

Then of course their spoofing of U.K. passport terminology with the Their Satanic Majesties Request LP in 1967.

By 1975 though they had to resort to deliberately targetting whatever the cause du jour happened to be. Witness their advertising campaign for the Black and Blue LP:



Of course they knew full well that their advertising displays would prompt enraged protests from women's groups and hand-wringers everywhere:



But the ensuing publicity is of course what the Stones wanted so they snickered all the way to the bank.

Then there's these widely condemned urinals patterned after the iconic Stones' logo designed by Dutch artist Meike van Schijndel:



I was taken aback but bemused myself when I encountered these urinals in a Vilnius casino in 2003.

 ;D

These days though it's really easy for the Stones to offend the Establishment since it's now dominated by young people. All they have to do is continue rocking and count their money to elicit annoyed protests of "Why don't they retire?" from the younger generation.

 :D

Those ad campaigns are over 40 years old (very cool, too). That wouldn't fly today. People are far too busy finding ways of being offended, to enjoy themselves.



Btw, when Keef dies, the world will end.

Yes, but the Rolling Stones have always loved to offend people! They built their careers on the resulting attention. As they say in show business, any publicity is good publicity.

I honestly can't remember the Stones doing anything offensive in at least 20 years. Not to argue, but they've become model citizens.

Sad but very true.

 :(

Other than continuing to rock and thus thumbing their noses at the millennials who think they should retire to rocking chairs!

 ;D

Yes, it seems that electric guitars have been all but banned. Sad. I'll take one Jeff Beck solo over anything millennials have put out in the last 20 years.

 Damn! That was beyond great. I have no idea how he gets some of those sounds out of a guitar. The man has no equal.

The Top Ten Rolling Stones Moments!



The list contains some inaccuracies, e.g. Ed Sullivan wanted to ban the Stones from further appearances on his show after their first appearance and not as a result of the 1967 appearance where they performed Let's Spend the Night Together. An interesting list nonetheless!

 Fun fact, the real title of Star, Star is "Starf*cker". They had to change it for the American release. Prudish bastards.
