The Rolling Stones have released 22 studio albums in the UK (24 in the US), 19 live albums and numerous compilations; and have sold more than 200 million albums worldwide. ''Music/StickyFingers'' from 1971 began a string of eight consecutive studio albums that charted at number one in the United States. In 1989 The Rolling Stones were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and in 2004 they were ranked number 4 in ''Rolling Stone'' magazine's 100 Greatest Artists of All Time. Their image of unkempt and surly youth (originally cultivated in large part to contrast them with Music/TheBeatles) is one that many musicians still emulate.

The band's early recordings largely consisted of covers of American blues and R&B songs. The earliest songs written by the band were credited under the pseudonym Nanker/Phlege. After first achieving success in the UK with a cover of Lennon/[=McCartney=]'s "I Wanna Be Your Man" in late 1963, they became popular in the US during TheBritishInvasion in 1964. However, their first U.S. tour was famous as a disaster, where the band had no major hit to tour on, were mocked by Music/DeanMartin on national TV and regularly failed to sell tickets well. Their 1965 singles "The Last Time" and "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" as well as their third album ''Music/OutOfOurHeads'' shot the Stones into superstardom.

* DemotedToExtra: Shortly after becoming the Stones' business manager in 1964, Andrew Loog Oldham had keyboardist Ian Stewart demoted to road manager, ostensibly on the grounds that six were too many for a pop group but more likely because Stewart's short-haired, lantern-jawed appearance didn't fit the image Oldham was trying to cultivate for them. However, he did continue to contribute to the Stones' recordings and performed in the background as their touring keyboardist (but not a full member of the band) until his death. When the Stones were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1989, the band requested that Stewart be inducted as a member as well -- and he was.

* BadToTheBone: "Gimme Shelter"
** Pretty {{Iron|y}}ic, if you know the lyrics.
* BathroomStallGraffiti: The ''Music/BeggarsBanquet'' cover. Decca Records found it so offensive at the time that they refused to use it, substituting a [[MinimalisticCoverArt plain white cover]] with a fake dinner invitation instead. The bathroom cover would eventually be restored for the album's CD reissue.
** The controversy over the intended cover actually led to the album's release being delayed by several months... during which [[Music/TheBeatles another little-known English pop group]] happened to release [[Music/TheWhiteAlbum a double album with an all-white cover]] of their own. This led to the Stones being accused of ripping off said album cover come the release of ''[[Music/BeggarsBanquet Banquet]]'', while they themselves never had anything to do with it.

** To add to that story, Richards only stopped Jagger from falling out of the window because Mick was wearing Keith's wedding jacket at the time.

* BreakupSong: "Angie"
** Actually more of a "getting clean" - despite the common assumption that "Angie" is a woman - supposedly Music/DavidBowie's first wife, Angela - Keith Richards has stated that he wrote the song while detoxifying in Switzerland, and that Angie is a pseudonym for heroin.

** Which was originally called "Starfucker", but had the title changed after Atlantic Records boss Ahmet Ertegun managed to get them to do so. He couldn't make them remove the profanity though.
