Jokes:

TRUE STORY **** Rolling Stones singer Mick Jagger has rooted for Portugal, Italy, England and other soccer teams at the 2014 World Cup tournament in Brazil and they've all been thrashed by the opposing teams. A curse or a bad voodoo-like spell? Mick also loves Brazilians, having fathered one 15 years ago with former Brazilian model Luciana Gimenez. Since the soccer teams he's been rooting for have all flopped in the tournament, you could say that Mick Jagger can't get no soccer satisfaction!

Band Name Origins:

  • Stonesfan is confusing The Temptations song "Papa Was a Rolling Stone" (where the lyrics he quotes are from) with- Muddy Waters' Rollin' Stone " He's gonna be, he's gonna be a rollin stone, Sure 'nough, he's a rollin stone" It is where the band got their name, but "Papa was a Rolling Stone" was released in 1972 and the Stones 1st used their name in 1962. Submitted by: Mark Silverman
  • The Rolling Stones definitely got their name from the Muddy Waters' song. It has nothing to do with masturbation or the saying "A rolling stone gathers no moss." Sidenote: Rolling Stone actually named Bob Dylan's "Like a Rolling Stone" the #1 song of all time, not Muddy Water's "Rollin' Stone". Submitted by: andrew

I counted the number of times that word is used. One count gave me around 40 times. Another time I got up to 80. BTW "that word" is the official song title, the record label execs didn't want that word printed on the album so it was "renamed" as "Star Star". It was the same way when Joan Jett covered it on her 1983 "Album" album.

Nonsensical Song Lyrics:

"Jumpin' Jack Flash"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Jumpin' Jack Flash, it's a gas, gas, gas!

"Mixed Emotions"
The Nonsensical Lyrics:
Button your lip, baby. Button your coat.

Song They Mention:
It refers to the 50s gem "Yakety-Yak" by the Coasters. This particular song is from the Steel Wheels album. There's so much diversity here, this song is kind of punk. Steel Wheels is one of my favorite Stones CDs - it's so good and it reminds me of the good times of 1989-1991. A true classic.

Real Places Mentioned in Songs:

"Miss You"
The Lyrics:
Well, I've been haunted in my sleep You've been starring in my dreams Lord I miss you I've been waiting in the hall Been waiting on your call When the phone rings It's just some friends of mine that say, Hey, what's the matter man? We're gonna come around at twelve With some Puerto Rican girls that are just dyin' to meet ya We're gonna bring a case of wine Hey, let's go mess and fool around You know, like we used to
I've been walking in Central Park Singing in the dark People think I'm crazy I've been stumbling on my feet Shuffling through the street Asking people, what's the matter with ya boy?
Why:
The Rolling Stones' "Miss You" is from the group's 1978 lp, "Some Girls". Despite meeting with some resistance due to the fact that many thought the ultimate rock band, the Rolling Stones were selling out by releasing a Disco tune (which "Miss You" is, the Rolling Stones didn't hide that fact), the song still managed to find itself all the way to #1 in the early fall of 1978. And surprisingly, it is still one of the most played Rolling Stones' songs on Classic Rock and Classic Hit stations (many dj's say it's their favorite Stones' tune). "Miss You" casts lead singer, Mick Jagger, as a guy living in New York City lost without the love of his life, and trying to lose himself in the party scene but failing miserably at it. There is a shoutout in the second verse to the real U.S. territory of Puerto Rico (with the "Puerto Rican girls" lyric), and in the third verse there is a shoutout to a the real place of Central Park (a famous park in upper Manhattan).
Submitted by: Peter
"Brown Sugar"
The Lyrics:
Gold coast slave ship bound for cotton fields, Sold in a market down in New Orleans. Scarred old slaver know he's doin' alright. Hear him whip the women just around midnight.
Drums beating, cold English blood runs hot. Lady of the house wondrin' where it's gonna stop. House boy knows he's doin' alright. You should a heard him just around midnight.
Why:
The Rolling Stones' "Brown Sugar' is from the group's 1971 lp, "Sticky Fingers". "Brown Sugar" went to #1 in the early summer of 1971, despite some resistence from women's rights group (about the lyrics where the old slaver whips the women) and from African-American rights group (about the whole song about slavery). But the Rolling Stones explained that it was just a song about those times of the early 18th Century and was more an indictment on the English participating in the slave trade, in America, despite the British government outlawing slavery in Britain at that time. In the first verse lead singer Mick Jagger gives a shoutout to the city of New Orleans, and in the second verse a shoutout to England (via the word, English).

Songs That Are Banned:

"Their Satanic Majesties Request (Album)"
The original title of this album was supposed to be "Her Satanic Majesties Request" a pun on the Queen Of England. Needless to say, the Stones decided to drop that title, fearing bad things would come...

"She's So Cold"
The radio stations around Columbus played the original album version which has the line "She's so gorgeous, so G.D. gorgeous so". However, I was in a hardware store with my mom ( I was very young then) and the PA system was airing Casey Kasem's Top 40. When this song was being played an edited version was aired. The G.D. word was replaced by "go-go-".

The band recorded this song just to leave London Records. Unsurprisingly, the label refused to release the song. Only available as a bootleg

"Rough Justice"
The Stones played 3 songs at Super Bowl XL in Detroit. "Rough Justice" has these double-entendre lyrics: One time you were my baby chicken, Now you've grown into a fox; Once upon a time I was your little rooster, But now I'm just one of your cocks Because of this the sound of Mick Jagger's mike was turned down momentarily when he sang the word "cocks". There is debate on whether the Stones knew or approved of this. This was 2 years after that "wardrobe malfunction" scandal that got tongues wagging. This Stones hit is way MUCH better than that generic crap that Justin and Janet did their act to anyway.
Submitted by: I'm Stoned
"She Was Hot"
In early 1984 this single was released but MTV banned its video. Maybe because it showed a woman on top of a TV set and animated fire is "issuing" from her mouth and butt. MTV later did play the video, however. I saw it in 1986.

Lighter Side of Serious Bands:

"Brown Sugar"
few years ago I saw the Sunday paper sale ads and I saw some female models (of various races) wearing some rock'n'roll T-shirts of many bands, on sale. For the Target AND the Wal-Mart ads there was a young black woman (same one both ads), yes - a "brown sugar" and she wore a light blue Rolling Stones T-shirt in both ads! You tell me that is just coincidental and I have the deed to the Golden Gate bridge to sell you. It cracked me up.

During the week before the Stones would play at OSU stadium I saw an ad on TV for some brown sugar that goes with oatmeal. Near the end of the ad someone sings, "Brown sugar! How come you taste so good?". I got a really good kick out of that. I leaned over on the couch and laughed my butt off! Funny thing is, I just kind of KNEW the song would come into this. I just knew it.

"On With The Show"
One of the many goofy nuggets of psychedelia on Their Satanic Majesties Request. I have included it here as it features Mick Jagger sounding very much like a game show host...and,despite the song title, it is the last song on the album.

"Something Happened To Me Yesterday"
This song is almost reminiscent to Bob Dylan's 'Rainy Day Women #12 and #35' with the brass and the witty ending.

What A Band is Best Known For (aside from their music):

"The Soccer Curse of Mick"
Singer Mick Jagger has rooted for Portugal, Italy, England and other soccer teams at the 2014 World Cup and they've all been thrashed by the opposing teams. A curse or a bad voodoo-like spell? Mick also loves Brazilians, having fathered one 15 years ago with former Brazilian model Luciana Gimenez. Since the soccer teams he's been rooting for have all flopped in the tournament, you could say that Mick Jagger can't get no soccer satisfaction!

"inventing hard rock"
They started out in 1962 as a blues-rock and rockabilly band, and they altered their sound to create a whole new genre. They are the first hard rock band, achieving an accomplishment of far reaching consequences. This paved the way for other rock styles such as glam/glitter rock, heavy metal, country rock, punk rock and more.

"Festival Performance?"
Last month the Rolling Stones set off speculation that they're scheduled to play this year's Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival after a fan noticed that the venerable English band's mobile app included a listing for a mid-April concert date in Indio. Now the festival has added more weight to those rumors with a photo posted recently on its Facebook page. As seen at the top of their post, the photo depicts what appears to be a large round rock- a rolling stone, in other words- in the middle of Indio's Empire Polo Club, where Coachella takes place. The 3-day show will run April 12-14 and repeat the following weekend Apr 19-21. The official lineup will be announced in late January, but the Stones have thus far denied the booking...

"Wedding Bells for Ronnie Wood"
Two British newspapers say Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood has married his fiance Sally Humphries at a ceremony recently at London's Dorchester Hotel. The Sun and the Daily Mirror carried photographs of the 65 year old rocker in a dark blue suit and his 34 year old bride in a traditional white gown and a clutch of matching white flowers. The newspapers said the guests included Rod Stewart and his wife Penny Lancaster as well as ex-Beatle Paul McCartney and his wife Nancy Shevell.
