Best The Rolling Stones Songs
The Top TenXW
Yes! This song is totally the best song in the world. If you are on this site. VOTE FOR THIS SONG NOW! This is my favorite song on the sing star game. Paint it black FTW!
Amazing song no one comes close to it good lyrics I hear people say that sympathy for the devil is better but this will always be there best and the best in the world
First heard this song on Guitar Hero a few years ago but since then I've bought almost all their albums up to date and I still continue to listen to this song today. It's just awesome!
An epic song worthy of number 1V63 Comments
First off, there's never been anything like it before or since. It's simple, with a lyrical content that most simple minds will never grasp. Jagger's delivery is legendary, with a bite. The bass by keith (not by to take anything away from Mr. Wyman) as well as his Keith's guitar he has never surpassed, but pay close attention to Nicky Hopkins and in their lies the best rock 'n roll piano on record. I could vote for about 20 favorite Stones songs, depends on the mood I'm in. But to be honest there is truly no better rock song than this one!
This is the best (lyrically) song ever written PERIOD! Yes it has a very catchy tune and Jagger's delivery is spot on, but the lyrics. The depth of what the song is saying is tremendous. The song takes us through history, through all the bad things that have happened and blames the devil. Towards the end, we see, the devil is none other than us! So have some sympathy for him!
This song is the paragon of controversy, lyrically it portrays the problems of mankind, the futility of war and religion ultimatley stating mankind mirrors satan, it's depth at that time was far more powerful, stating it was the American public that caused the death of their leader was and still is a controversial but somewhat true statement, The Rolling Stones had the guts to say what everyone else was too scared to and that's why their the most inspirational rock band of all time (in my opinion anyway), this song is them doing exactly what they do best not to mention the sublime delivery by Jagger, a legendary solo by Keith.
It's a great song! It's spooky through and through. Did God make man or did man make God? I know the answer to the question!V60 Comments
awesome, the build up is dark moody and pitch perfect. the execution is above all restrained. that's what makes it the best
Love This Song So Much It's Their Best Should Be Number 1 Amazing Song Top 3 Songs 1 Gimme Shelter 2 Paint It Black 3 Sympathy For The Devil - mneilan
This song takes you right back to the energy and attitude of the late 60's/early 70's
Probably the greatest guitar work done ever. Period.V79 Comments
I feel I can't GET NO SATISFACTION is the greatest song of all time followed by Michael JACKSONs BILLIE JEAN they being so great unless if I'm LUCIFER and I did greater music than you imagined but I think I'm not that great even if I did create music and set rules how music and created humanity if music and humans are both so much alike no one knowing why humans exist if there is a sole purpose or if music has sole purpose and which is perfect if define perfect music I doubt I would been better than Michael JACKSON, The Rolling Stones, QUEEN, Led Zeppelin and Eminem I do still feel passion for music even if I'm actually over 1 billion years old (as LUCIFER) would you felt shocked if I did write lyrics for songs of album it saying about both GOD and I our life everything we went through hardships and doubt sadness having family about even when we created much if I would had amazed you or not well who knows but I bet illuminati would wanted to stop me because they think I could blown ...more
This should be number 1! I'm making a list of the greatest songs of all time, and I'm making this number 2! This song has a genius opening and main riff and awesome lyrics!

incredible song, far from their other stuff, and talking about how to be a man when themselves just do what ever they always wanted, drug sex and rock'n roll!
Oh, man, every time I think of this song I think of the time I was driving in the car and then all of a sudden my dad said we're going to McDonald's and after we got the food I wanted it really bad as we were getting home and then this blasted on the radio... I was quiet till we got home :-) AH I LOVE THIS SONG
Just love the song!V12 Comments
It just grabs you in! I was amazed at how unusual and sympathetic this song was. Something different is projected in each of their songs. I'm baffled with every song I hear from them.
Beautiful, beautiful song, sort of unlike the Stones, but with the violin and piano, and vocals... Amazing. Such a sweet, unusual, sad song. At least top five, I'd say first, but they have a lot of other great stuff too. I'm a 13 year old girl. A lot of us listen to Justin Bieber and One Direction, and loads of autotuned junk, but not me. I love rock, alt, things that aren't constantly playing on top 40. Rock on.
This is the song that I connect with the breakup of my first love. It takes you back to how you felt and makes me realise how much I cared. It is a ballad that I can listen to over and over again. This song had the ability to consume my life for the couple of months after, it's kind of a relief. I'd say definitely The Rolling Stones best and most heartfelt song.
One of the cutest songs that I've heard, reminds me of my girlfriend...V12 Comments
Where the hell is "It's Only Rock N' Roll"? THE best Stones song ever! Hells Yeah!
The stones best riff, the awesome mix of blues, rock and eastern tones. Rocks and is eery at the same time.
Funkin awesome! The pace of the songs really nice! One of the 1st songs I heard of this band.. I listened to all the more critically acclaimed ones, but this still is my favorite

No way! Start me up in seventh place? This one should be in first or second place, it's all, the lyrics, the music, jagger, but above all, the mood it get's you into
This Song Should Be Number 5 Amazing Guitar Riff At The Start - mneilan
One of the best written songs and their best played.
Top three or two!V8 Comments
Should definitely be no.1! Because of the energy flooding into you when listening to this rock'n'roll masterpiece! From the first riff you just get into it and want to sing it out loud in the metro instead of just keeping it for yourself through your headphones!
The ultimate in crunchy guitar riffs and great, Rolling Stones-at-their-best- lyrics. A Number 1 any day.
Second best Guitar riff ever heard, second only to Jumping Jack Flash! Kick ass Sax Solo by the Keys Great song over all, and very sexy lyrics!
Brown Sugar and honkey tonk women both amazing in concert. Never get old. Never tired... Like Mick. Rock onV3 Comments
Quite simply the most beautiful song ever created by mankind nothing else even comes close.
This is the world's most beautiful piece of music ever made! You'll fall in love with this song immediately. Well, even God couldn't create a better song than this masterpiece! Or maybe The Stones are God?
So beautiful! Rolling stones will always be remembered, love them!
Best Rolling Stones song. It makes me cry every time I listen to it. Also, I don't understand why there isn't "Under my Thumb" it's one of my favorite songs of The Rolling Stones!V10 Comments
Even better now that it's in the soundtrack to Scott Pilgrim vs. the World - it fits the character of Gideon Graves perfectly.
One of my favorites, along with Paint it Black and Satisfaction.
This isn't what I voted for but it should be top 10V3 Comments
Wow this song is this low! That's crazy it's a fantastic song and anyone who's listened to rock before should know that this is the best.
Seriously underrated song... This one should be much higher on the list! Great vocals and solo...V3 Comments
What? You guys kidding me? Okay, paint it black n sympathy for devil r great.. But this is cool to...!
A certain restaurant is named after this song... Take 3 Wild Guesses. - Pony
It has a good name for that type of songV2 Comments
You can put me out with no shoes on my feet, you can put me out on the street, you can put me out, put me out, put me out of misery...
My favorite stones song, should be top 10, I don't know why more people don't like this song, the music blends with mick's vocals so perfectly.
First stones song I ever listened to and it remains my favorite. The powerful vocals, the rhythm, the three guitars all playing at once... This song is beautiful.
Am I rich enough?V11 Comments
a great song!
should be in top tens..
mick jagger and the band go 100% on this song!
Come on, I was expecting to see this one at least in the top 10. This is THE song, for me it's the 4th best Rolling Stones song, just after Angie.
This song, a top 5 Stones song in my humble opinion, was the beginning of the end for Mick Taylor. The trouble was, he was too good - technically at least - compared with Keith. Still, a fantastic jam to end the track.
Gritty song that just gets under your fingernails. Outstanding!V7 Comments
Some many great songs to choose from but Honky Tonk Women delivers throughout from every angle.
Very hard to narrow down a top 10 but this is number 1 on my list.
The greatest cow bell song ever.
Just the best song period.V3 Comments
I love this song, my and my friend both love to listen to this song together. Love The stonesV1 Comment
Great song surprised it's so low on the list. Seen it performed live by a tribute band which was amazing, can only imagine how good it would be by the the stones. X
Not my favourite Stones song, but it really is awesome. This tune should at least be top 20!V3 Comments
In the minority here, but this has always been my favorite Stones song. Maybe just because I grew up in the disco era? I just dig the funk.
Catchy and funky, still holds up. Lots of the older albums have too much nostalgia powering their popularity, but this one I've been listening to over and over. This song is the best on the album - I can't get the hook out of my mind. Then the sax solos come in and it ends even better than it started.
This song is proof that Mick Jagger and Keith Richards can write for any audience. This tune embodied the popular disco of the late 70s and, combined with the classic rock and roll, became one of their most catchiest, riffest, bluesiest and most danceable song all in one. Amazing
Best one on the album, along with when the whip comes down and shattered in my opinion. Also one of my favorites from the band in general. - matty925V6 Comments
Best stones track ever! Rock/gospel groove with lyrics that Mick never sings the same way twice..
I can't believe this song is so low! This is my favourite Stones song by far!
My favourite stones song! Perhaps even one of my favourite songs ever, every time I hear this I start singing along. Love it
Best song from Exile on Main Street and one of the best songs from them!V3 Comments
