    I always liked that one King Bee song they did, "I'm a king bee baby". Really bluesy.

    I find them overrated. I think the Beatles, Beach Boys, and Led Zeppelin are better. Just my opinion.
    I just never enjoyed their sound.

    i did not like the rolling stones till my mid-20's...im not going to say i like them better than the beatles, but these days i listen to alot more stones than beatles.

    the mick taylor era is my favorite and exile on main street is one of my all time favorite albums.

    most underrated stones song...

    I like a lot of their songs but I don't know if I can come up with an absolute favorite 10 but here is what I would choose (in no particular order):

    "Gimme Shelter"
    "Miss You"
    "Hang Fire"
    "Waiting on a Friend"
    "Sympathy For the Devil"
    "Paint It Black"
    "Get Off My Cloud"
    "Shattered"
    "19th Nervous Breakdown"
    and I guess I'll go with "Satisfaction" as my 10th selection.

    I am a huge Rolling Stones fan. Taken as a whole, I consider Exile on Main St to be greatest musical work in the history of mankind. Am I overstating it? Maybe, but it's the truth.

    Oddly enough I have no songs in my top 10 from that album (but like I said you have to take it as a whole).

    My Top ten Rolling Stones Song
    1. Get Off Of My Cloud
    2. Jumpin Jack Flash
    3. You Can't Always Get What You Want
    4. Sway
    5. Sympathy for the Devil
    6. Honky Tonk Women
    7. Bitch
    8. I Am Waiting
    9. She Smiled Sweetly
    10. Stray Cat Blues

    The Who is the best rock band ever. Still, I like the Stones a bunch. My Top Ten in no particular order except how they appear on my Spotify playlist:

    It's Only Rock 'n' Roll
    Can't You Hear Me Knocking
    Monkey Man
    Tumbling Dice
    Bitch
    Happy
    Street Fighting Man
    Doo Doo Doo Doo Doo (Heartbreaker)
    Gimme Shelter
    Midnight Rambler

    (Dang, it's tough to pick just ten. I'll stand by those though.)

    By the way, I have 112 Who songs on my playlist and they all rock.

    Awesome album!!!
    The guitar solo on "sympathy for the devil" is flat out incredible!!!!
    Have to say the Mick Taylor era is my favorite.

    You're entitled to your opinion.
    "Never enjoyed their sound"?
    Go listen to "moonlight mile" and see if you still feel this way.

    "Exile on Main Street" is certainly one of the "greatest musical works in the history of mankind". EVERY song on that album kicks!!! I go back and forth between "Exile" and "Sticky Fingers" as to which is the best. Depends on what day it is.
