The Rolling Stones originally started out as a British blues band with an influence of jazz. In 1960 Mick Jagger and Keith Richards were both
"fans of the blues and American R&B." [4]

With Rock N' Roll and Blues as their main roots
, "the group began a short period of musical experimentation in the mid 1960s that peaked with the psychedelic album Their Satanic Majesties Request (1967)" [3]

By the early 1970s they were considered the greatest Rock N' Roll band alive when they had the world in their hands with hits like
"Sticky Fingers." [8]
BLENDED influence
Before the Rolling Stones, Mike Jagger lived in a household with his mother, who was a hairdresser, his father and grandfather, who were teachers, and his brother, who was a musician and the greatest influence his life. Despite, the families demand for Jagger to follow his father's footsteps, he dropped out of college and pursued his shared dream with best friend Keith Richards.
"I always sang as a child. I was one of those kids who just liked to sing."

Alongside other bands, The Rolling Stones incorporated their political views, religious beliefs, and lifestyle into their songs. Their songs spoke of them and for them. A recurring theme you often find within Rolling Stones songs is that of an Outlaw.

The Outlaw image and musical theme made the Rolling Stones so popular amongst so many. They were challengers of reason and expectations.

Outlaws and Activist
Political themes within The Rolling Stones' songs were subtle and creative. Perhaps some of their more politically themed songs were
"Sweet Black Angel"

"Street Fighting Man"
, and surprisingly
"Some Girls"

"Some Girls"
was a song that created uproar within the feminist community due to the way it spoke about women and how it insultingly stereotyped them. However, the song's theme and message was to portray how men of the time viewed women, and therefore, show their misogynistic ways.

"Sweet Black Angel"
was a sweet and funky song, who spoke of Angela Davis. To whoever was aware of Angela Davis' murder charges, the song was much more powerful and political. Angela Davis was an activist facing murder charges due to the system failing her. In their song, that chorus sings
"free the black slave"
. [6]

One of the more blatantly political songs of The Rolling Stones was
"Street Fighting Man"
. This song was a huge part of the anti-war movement of the 60's. Many did not want war and showed their discontent with it through various outlets. [7]

The Rolling Stones is an English rock band that was formed in 1962 in England. The Rolling Stones were at the forefront of the British Invasion of Bands that became popular in the US in 1964, and identified with the youthful and rebellious counterculture of the 1960. (3) Some of their popular songs that landed them their popularity is Ruby Tuesday, Lets Spend The Night Together, and Satisfaction just to name a few. Their music consisted of the Blues and early Rock N' Roll.
"They're something intangible- a renegade spirit that turns up in nearly a century of music. And just as that outlaw aesthetic has been around for far longer than the band itself, The Rolling Stones will be around for much longer than 50 years." [5]
