* 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 get 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-long "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 ''Music/DirtyWork'' 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" (''Music/ExileOnMainSt''). 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 Music/MarianneFaithfull 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.
** Happened to one of their ''own'' songs. "I'm Free" is probably better remembered for the cover by the Soup Dragons. Thanks in part due to Film/TheWorldsEnd soundtrack.
* [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome Crowning Moment of Awesome]]: Have [[Awesome/TheRollingStones their own page]].
* [[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]]: They weren't called "The World's Greatest Rock 'n' Roll Band" for nothing. In particular, the four-album streak of ''Music/BeggarsBanquet'', ''Music/LetItBleed'', ''Music/StickyFingers'', and ''Music/ExileOnMainSt'' is a staple of any respectable "greatest rock albums of all time" or "greatest albums of TheSixties[=/=]TheSeventies" list, and ''Music/{{Aftermath}}'', ''Music/BetweenTheButtons'', and ''Music/SomeGirls'' frequently make such lists as well. They were also one of the world's best singles acts for quite some time; the three-CD box set ''Singles Collection: The London Years'' has a bountiful supply of AwesomeMusic, while you can't go wrong with any of the tracks on the band's best-known hits collection ''Forty Licks'' either. In conclusion, have fun with the ArchivePanic!
* EarWorm: Many of the better known songs.
* EpicRiff: "Satisfaction", "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", "One Hit (To The Body)", "Mixed Emotions", "Can't You Hear Me Knockin", "Bitch"...
** 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 '60s, 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: ''Music/TheirSatanicMajestiesRequest'' and to a lesser extent ''Music/BetweenTheButtons'' are considered an aberration by some fans.
* GrowingTheBeard: ''Music/{{Aftermath}}'', the first album solely written by Jagger and Richards.
* HarsherInHindsight: "Gimme Shelter" from ''Music/LetItBleed'' 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.
* MagnumOpusDissonance: According to Richards' autobiography, Jagger looked at ''Music/ExileOnMainSt'' as just another album. It also took awhile for its reputation to build.
* MemeticBadass: Keith Richards should have died of a drug overdose decades ago. 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 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."
** One suspected reason for his survival is that he has a very rare genetic mutation that renders him largely immune to the negative side effects of those drugs.
* 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 ''Music/GoatsHeadSoup'' [[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'', while many listeners and critics cite ''Music/SomeGirls'' as the band's last genuine masterpiece.
* SignatureSong: Many, but "Satisfaction" is the most well known.
* TastesLikeDiabetes: The album artwork of ''Music/LetItBleed''.
* ValuesDissonance: A lot of their songs come across as misogynistic to modern audiences.
* WereStillRelevantDammit: Justified with 1978's ''Music/SomeGirls''. Music critics had written off the Rolling Stones as outdated with the emergence of 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 for ''Music/TheirSatanicMajestiesRequest'' can also be seen as an early example of this.
** Their 1997 album ''Music/BridgesToBabylon'' is riddled with electronica textures.
