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

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?
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).

"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.
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:

"Too Much Blood"
The song and video are a parody of horror movies but the lyrics describing an actual event where this Japanese man living in Paris decapitates, cuts up and cannibalizes his GF, and an enacted scene where Mick has a mannequin doll (and other things) in his fridge as well as the hallucinations of this woman who is watching all this on her TV. She then 'sees' blood in virtually everything, even when she unplugs the TV set (bleeding socket!) and then she tries to smash the set on the wall. No use, so she hurls it out the window and the CRT explodes, with a ghost image of the screaming Mick Jagger hovering outside. Needless to say, this song and video airplay were very restricted on radio and MTV.
Submitted by: I Got Stoned 2X at Ohio State University
"Undercover of the Night"
This song's video was banned by the BBC and restricted in airplay by MTV due to the extreme violent content. The setting is in the Salvadorian Civil War and the lyrics reflect it too.

"Street Fighting Man"
Not the song itself, the single jacket cover art. It depicted cops hovering over a protester on the ground. Just prior to the song's release was the infamous 1968 riot at the Democratic National Convention. The record label decided to be cautious in the wake of the controversy and political turmoil and ordered the records destroyed. About 18 records were saved somehow — one was auctioned off for $17,000 in 2011.

They've also been releasing 2 CD / 1 DVD sets of several shows out the yinyang, including the show in Havana that the Cuban government allowed them to do. They've also dropped a few new songs on the way and put out the covers album 'Blue and Lonesome' which took 3 days to record! And they've been touring on and on and on - they keep on rolling, rolling, rolling,...

"Salute to Ohio State University"
I saw the Rolling Stones for the second time at Ohio Stadium in late May 2015. They actually surprised EVERYONE in the audience (including me - an OSU alumnus) with their cover of 'Hang On Sloopy' which is the OSU football team's fight song. Later on, Mick did the Ohio State cheer by yelling 'O-H!' and the crowd yelled back 'I-O!' in response. Later on, ever the master of ceremonies that he is, Sir Mick fired off a chant with 'M-I!' and the crowd booed! Was Mick trying to spell his name 'MICK' or was it the name of OSU's main football rival 'MICHIGAN' as in Michigan University? BTW, the opening act for that evening was Kid Rock and he's from the state of Michigan!

"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.

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.
