50 Years of the Rolling Stones
The Rolling Stones, as a band -- a brand, an institution, a phenomenon -- turned 50 years old in 2012. It is probably best not to dwell on the implications of this. Instead, let's just immerse ourselves in quite possibly the most staggeringly awesome discography in rock history. Below, please find a full studio-album guide (come for Aftermath or Let It Bleed, stay for Goats Head Soup and Undercover), a deep dive into their live albums/anthologies/rarities stuff (Hot Rocks is just the beginning, though Hot Rocks is still awesome), and a full exploration of the indomitable Exile on Main St. Plus a few more wild playlists and some other fun stuff. All this music sounds as fresh and vibrant and classic as it did back in the day. Never mind how long ago that day was.
