* ArchivePanic: As [[http://www.rollingstones.com/music their Web page]] says: "92 singles, 29 studio albums, 10 live albums and more songs than you can count."
** And now they're starting to roll out previously bootleg-only material (such as the legendary 1973 Brussels show) via their [[http://www.stonesarchive.com/ Rolling Stones Archive]] site.
* [[AmericansHateTingle Argentineans Hate The Rolling Stones]]: Crossing with {{MisBlamed}}, thanks to Ratones Paranoicos and the countless clone bands who didn't got the memo that the Rolling Stones aren't just Satisfaction and Start Me Up.
* ChorusOnlySong: "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" does have other words...
** [[SarcasmMode Shockingly enough]], so does the seven and a half minute "You Can't Always Get What You Want."
* 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.
** "Harlem Shuffle," originally a Bob & Earl song from 1964, and covered by the Stones for ''Dirty Work'' in 1986, definitely fits here as well. It sounds so prototypically Stones that few even knew it was a cover before the days of the internet.
** A slightly more complicated example would be "As Tears Go By" and "Wild Horses". Jagger and Richards wrote those songs, and the Stones' versions are definitive, but in both cases they were preceded by cover versions - they donated "Tears" to Marianne Faithfull before recording it themselves, while Gram Parsons convinced them to let his band The Flying Burrito Brothers cover the already-recorded "Wild Horses", and their version was released a year before the Stones' own.
* [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome Crowning Moment Of Awesome]]: For Charlie Watts, the BewareTheNiceOnes example on the main page.
** Famously performed "Brown Sugar" from the back of a moving truck in 1971 to promote the single.
* [[SugarWiki/FunnyMoments Crowning Moment Of Funny]]: "[[Series/SaturdayNightLive Mick, you]] [[http://rutube.ru/tracks/2339251.html?v=8e9ea8825813b1789715b00c8da7c2d0 ignorant slut!]]"
* [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic Crowning Music Of Awesome]]
* EarWorm: Many of the better known songs.
* EpicRiff: "Satisfaction". Need I say more?
** Sure. "The Last Time", "Get Off of My Cloud", "19th Nervous Breakdown", "Paint It Black", "Jumpin' Jack Flash", "Brown Sugar", "Street Fightin' Man", "Sympathy for the Devil", "Gimme Shelter", "Rocks Off", "Tumblin' Dice", "All Down the Line", "Beast of Burden", "Shattered", "Start Me Up", "Mixed Emotions", "Can't You Hear Me Knockin' "...
** 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!
*** Keith Richards has said that if he were only allowed to play one riff for the rest of his life, he'd pick "Jumpin' Jack Flash."
* EnsembleDarkhorse: Keith Richards. Charlie Watts, to a certain extent.
* FaceOfTheBand: Mick Jagger, and in the 60's, Brian Jones. After Jones's death, it became Mick and Keith Richards from the 70's onwards.
* FanNickname: Keith Richards became "Keef", due to his accent. And the band as a whole are commonly known as simply "The Stones".
* FanonDiscontinuity: ''Their Satanic Majesties Request'', and to a lesser extent ''Between the Buttons'' are considered an aberration by some fans.
* GrowingTheBeard: ''Aftermath'', the first album solely written by Jagger and Richards.
* HarsherInHindsight: "Gimme Shelter" took on a whole new meaning after Altamont.
** "Mother's Little Helper" as well, if only because of the rise of Oxycodone and addictions to prescription pain medications and doctor shopping.
** "Paint It Black" -- a song about the depression that follows the death of the singer's girlfriend -- became this after the suicide of Mick's girlfriend, L'Wren Scott, in 2014.
* MagnumOpus: Usually considered to be ''Exile on Main St.'', although sometimes ''Aftermath'', ''Let It Bleed'', ''Beggars Banquet'' or ''Sticky Fingers'' are cited instead.
* MagnumOpusDissonance: According to Richards' autobiography, Jagger looked at ''Exile'' as just another album. It also took awhile for its reputation to build.
* MemeticBadass: Keith Richards should have died of a drug overdose in the '70s. He is immortal.
** Multiple times it has been suggested (one of them by Creator/BillHicks) that if nuclear apocalypse happens, all that will be left are a handful of cockroaches and Keith Richards.
** And then there was this New Rule from ''Series/RealTimeWithBillMaher'':
--> "New Rule: Airplane black boxes must be made out of Keith Richards. The Man who has done more drugs than Courtney Love, 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.
* NightmareFuel: The ''Goat's Head Soup'' [[http://www.google.com/url?sa=i&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=images&cd=&cad=rja&docid=LoP5MzQWIzDBlM&tbnid=gIZf43z4hScnuM:&ved=0CAUQjRw&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.vinylrecords.ch%2FR%2FRO%2FRolling_Stones%2Fgoat-head%2Frolling-stones-goat-head-soup.html&ei=5lcRU7vGFobvoATYzYH4Dw&bvm=bv.62286460,d.cGU&psig=AFQjCNHaQGsZrNUBA-KJdKL1XxMLxbZEFg&ust=1393731918251575 album cover]] and sleeve photos, featuring the members' heads in what look like giblet bags.
* SeasonalRot: Some fans say they haven't been good for a long time. The most frequently cited "last good/great album" is ''Tattoo You''.
* SignatureSong: Many, but "Satisfaction" is the most well known.
* TooCoolToLive: Brian Jones, and to a lesser extent Ian Stewart.
* ValuesDissonance: A lot of their songs come across as misogynistic to modern audiences.
* WereStillRelevantDammit: Justified with 1978's ''Some Girls''. Music critics had written off the Rolling Stones as outdated with the emergence of Music/PunkRock and disco, but the Stones thought otherwise with ''Some Girls'' - which proved popular with critics and listeners alike. It helped that Mick Jagger was a keen follower of the punk and disco scenes in New York and London. It also helped that a lot of punks grew up listening to the Stones.
** Branching off into psychedelia in 1967 in the wake of ''Music/SgtPeppersLonelyHeartsClubBand'' for ''Their Satanic Majesties Request'' can also be seen as an early example of this.
** Their 1997 album ''Bridges To Babylon'' is riddled with electronica textures.
