Best The Rolling Stones Songs

The Top Ten

Paint It Black Paint It Black Cover Art

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!

This song is amazingly beautiful and really good... It reminds me of my youth

Gimme Shelter Gimme Shelter Cover Art

awesome, the build up is dark moody and pitch perfect. the execution is above all restrained. that's what makes it the best

By far best stones song. So unique, nothing has ever been written like this again.

Definitely top 3 Stones songs and a classic Rock and roll song . Iconic vocals

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

Sympathy for the Devil Sympathy for the Devil Cover Art

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!

One of them songs that the first time you hear it you have to keep going back and listening again and again. Ironic that Jagger singing from the perspective of the devil could sound so angelic.

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!

It's there best song. While less known by the mainstream, actual rolling stones fans should love this song

(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction (I Can't Get No) Satisfaction Cover Art

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!

I don't know guys, I have to go with this song above all songs here.

I love this song but I think thy could do a lot better but who cares its in the top ten

You Can't Always Get What You Want You Can't Always Get What You Want Cover Art

At the beginning of this song it sounds like you've just walked up the stairway to heaven

1 you can't always get what you want
2 paint it black
3 sympathy for the devil
4 under my thumb
5 ruby tuesday
6 wild horses
7 the rest

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

Jagger has a great voice all the time but for some reason in this song when he sings that "You can't always get what you want" it just hits people. And I guess I'm just a cliche cause it hits me too.

Jumpin' Jack Flash Jumpin' Jack Flash Cover Art

Where the hell is "It's Only Rock N' Roll"? THE best Stones song ever! Hells Yeah!

Le riff et l'attitide, du rock pur!

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

The stones best riff, the awesome mix of blues, rock and eastern tones. Rocks and is eery at the same time.

Brown Sugar Brown Sugar Cover Art

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 on

Angie Angie Cover Art

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.

Sweet lyrics, very cool, may be on top 5!

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.

Start Me Up Start Me Up Cover Art

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

One of the best written songs and their best played.

It's not their only good song dude, The Rolling Stones have got many awesome songs, including this one!

Wild Horses Wild Horses Cover Art

My favourite Stones song from that very first line it draws you in. Also some really good live versions about.

Quite simply the most beautiful song ever created by mankind nothing else even comes close.

The best songs are the ones that make you feel something and though many songs make me feel something like creep by Radiohead (Depression) or I'm Still Here by GooGoo Dolls (Like a gleeful child again) it is the song that makes me happy, I can't explain why but this song just makes me smile, it gives me a sense of hope and that's why it's not only my favourite Rolling Stones song but my favourite song of all.

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?

The Contenders

Under My Thumb Under My Thumb Cover Art

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.

Definitely in my Top 10 songs of all time. A great example of how all of their songs are different and unique. Sympathy for the Devil, Angie, and Gimme Shelter are some of my other favorites

One of my favorites, along with Gimme Shelter, Sympathy For The Devil and Jumpin' Jack Flash

It's Only Rock 'N' Roll It's Only Rock 'N' Roll Cover Art

Great Stones sing a long song that always find stuck in your head for days on end.

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...

That's insane this song should be #1

Beast of Burden Beast of Burden Cover Art

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...

I'm a yuge classic/prog rock fan. Yes, Dire Straits, Led Zeppelin - that's my jam and normally I can't stand the Stones.

But this song is them at their best. It belongs up there with Gimme Shelter and Can't Always Get What You Want.

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.

Miss You Miss You Cover Art

Even though not one of my favourite albums this is probably one of my favourite songs . Shows that stones really can do anything good.

I think this is one of their best songs I love paint it black and beast of burden but this one there is just something about it

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.

Ruby Tuesday Ruby Tuesday Cover Art

This song makes me want to pick up my guitar and strum my beating heart out of my chest. It's not a hard rock song, but this really makes me feel a certain kind of special.

How is this only #13? This should be third! Are any restaurants called Paint it Black or Sympathy for the Devil?

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.

Can't You Hear Me Knocking Can't You Hear Me Knocking Cover Art

a great song!
should be in top tens..
mick jagger and the band go 100% on this song!

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.

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.

Check out the alternate version of the song.

The original has a great start, but it sort of descends into a musical rut; mainly why I like the alternate version better. Short and sweet.

Honky Tonk Women Honky Tonk Women Cover Art

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.

Sorry Mick & the boys - I actually prefer this by Taj Mahal.

Get Off My Cloud Get Off My Cloud Cover Art

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

Brian Jones at hs best RIP

Not my favourite Stones song, but it really is awesome. This tune should at least be top 20!

Very surprised that it is so low on the list

Rocks Off Rocks Off Cover Art

You've got it all in this track: sex, drugs and rock n' roll. It's got the humor of the Stones. It's got the attitude of the Stones. It perfectly captures the Stones ability to groove and jam like no other. Altogether tasty.

One of the most underrated songs ever, I love every part of it, one of my all time favorite songs.

Ridiculously underrated! It's easily my favorite Stones tune. Those horns are heaven!

Best song on exile

She's a Rainbow She's a Rainbow Cover Art

I love the piano so much, ahhh! Paint it Black is still my number one but this is great too!

Make You imagine he singing and when the cymbal sounds rainbows appears bahind Jagger
Also remember You a happy and sanguinest girl that drives you mad.

Best Music of Stones by far!

My favourite together with Sympathy For the Devil

Tumbling Dice

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!

19th Nervous Breakdown 19th Nervous Breakdown Cover Art

This should by higher on the list

Number #23?! Are you kidding me?

Takes me back to 'awesome times' freebirdjoey

Damn... This one's good...

Let's Spend the Night Together Let's Spend the Night Together Cover Art

I'm not a Stones fan by any means. But this song is incredible. It deserves to be higher than #22.

Recorded proof that the stones could take on the beatles, beach boys or the kinks and be just as good as them, criminally underrated song from their catalog, it has such an amazing vibe.

Got to be in the top 10

Great song!

Street Fighting Man Street Fighting Man Cover Art

What the hell this doing down here? I thought it would be at least top 20

This song contains the essential of rock with a revolutionary message

My absolute favourite. Right, its maybe not their best song but should be higher than 22. The tune just makes me want to dance every time and it has a great message... pure banger

Shocked but not flabbergasted. In my opinion Street Fighting Man is second to Sympathy for the Devil on Beggars.

As Tears Go By As Tears Go By Cover Art

Best song according to me... So different from the other tracks... Jagger faithful should have ended up 2gether... Don't know why they were embarrassed of this song... I think this song is one of the best rolling stones ever..

What! Has nobody heard this beautiful song? Mick Jagger's pensive vocals, Keith Richards' one-of-a-kind guitar tune makes this song one of the top ten songs by The Rolling Stones.

One of the greatest song ever! The violin part is its highlight. can't believe it is 26! Rate more people!

Favourite Stones song for sure! First original collaboration by Richards and Jagger (that and Satisfaction)!
