* CoveredUp: Some of their early hits, such as "Not Fade Away", "Time Is On My Side", and "It's All Over Now", are covers that have arguably displaced the originals in popularity.

* CoveredUp: Some of their early hits, such as hits count. "Not Fade Away", "Time Is On My Side", and Away" is debatable, with Music/BuddyHolly's enduring popularity, but "It's All Over Now", Now" (originally by The Valentinos, featuring a young Bobby Womack) and "Time is on My Side" (based on the Irma Thomas version, but in fact originally a semi-instrumental by jazz artist Kai Winding) are covers that have arguably displaced the originals in popularity. definitely better known as Stones songs.

* ValuesDissonance: A lot of their songs come across as misogynistic to modern audiences. Some of them may be somewhat [[FairForItsDay Fair for Their Day]], others less so.

** The "Satisfaction" epic riff came about when Keith Richards stumbled out of a hotel bed, recorded the riff, and promptly fell back asleep (the recording is eight seconds of riff and twenty minutes of snoring!). That's right kids, Keith came up with an epic riff in his sleep!

* GermansLoveDavidHasselfhoff: They're a subculture in Argentina: "rolingas", heavily based in worker and lower classes, with its own fashion and musical genre, which they themselves never wore. When they were playing a few arenas by city in the mid nineties, they'd play to about 70,000 people each night.

* HarsherInHindsight: "Gimme Shelter" from ''Music/LetItBleed'' took on a whole new meaning after Altamont.

Added DiffLines:

* HilariousInHindsight: In a 1970 interview, Music/MickJagger was quoted as saying, "I'd rather be dead than singing 'Satisfaction' when I'm forty-five." Sir Mick, now in his seventies, continues to perform the song at every concert the Stones give.

* BrokenBase: ''Music/TheirSatanicMajestiesRequest'', either an underrated psychedelic masterpiece or a poor Sgt.Pepper knockoff.

* FandomRivalry:
** With Music/TheBeatles.
** Also between Stones fans who prefer
the 70's onwards.Music/BrianJones years or the Music/MickTaylor years.



* GrowingTheBeard: ''Music/{{Aftermath}}'', the first album solely written by Jagger and Richards. ''Beggars Banquet'' is sometimes considered to have done this a second time, as it launched a four-album streak that is now widely regarded as one of the strongest series of releases in rock and roll history.

to:

* FunnyAneurysmMoment: During the recording of "Gimme Shelter", guest vocalist Merry Clayton hit some very high notes, and broke her voice during the bridge. She shortly after had a miscarriage, due to the stress that she put on her body during the recording. It probably wasn't very wise for the Stones to have named the album it is listed on as ''Music/LetItBleed''.

--> "New Rule: Airplane black boxes must be made out of Keith Richards. The Man who has done more drugs than Music/CourtneyLove, Robert Downey, Jr., and Rush Limbaugh combined recently fell out of a tree and crashed a jetski. And yet, that cigarette never fell from his lips. Something tells me the future of medical science isn't injecting stem cells, it's injecting heroin."

* MemeticMutation: Thanks to his sightings in the [[TheWorldCup 2010 FIFA World Cup]], Mick Jagger has now become a harbinger of bad luck for any team he decides to cheer on, like the English Team, for example. Even though he's not to blame that ''that'' English team had such a low technical level.

Added DiffLines:

* YokoOhNo: Music/BrianJones' girlfrien Anita Pallenberg threw him over for Music/KeithRichards (while Jones was being hospitalized for pneumonia) during a visit by the trio to Morocco. While Jones helped drive Pallenberg away with physical and emotional abuse (although it was mutual), the betrayal worsened his already-deteriorating mental and emotional state, destroyed his already shaky relationship with Richards, and increased his marginalization within the Stones’ camp. It ultimately led to his expulsion from the band and subsequent untimely death.
