In two years, The Stones assumed their own identity, defined blues-born '60s rock and veered into psychedelia, which they nailed. "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" not only wrote the book on guitar riffs but the lyrics introduced the idea of existentialism into the rock vocabulary. "Get Off My Cloud," "As Tears Go By," "She's a Rainbow," "19th Nervous Breakdown," "Mother's Little Helper" -- the list of timeless Stones songs is daunting when somebody puts them all together like this. Plus the idea that "Paint It, Black" was, at one point, just the new song on the radio is mind-blowing.
