Default What Sucks about This Artist?: Rolling Stones Edition

Basically even if you like the Rolling Stones just tell us something that you think is garbage about them. If this works out we can do threads for other specific artists.

I love early Rolling Stones (debut is the best straight up rock n roll album ever) but those albums from their "classic" period where they mess around with country are really dull. Having lost my nut on stuff like Townes Van Zandt, Willie Nelson, and Waylon Jennings all those Rolling Stones albums just feel like shallow experimentations that fail both as rock and country, so what the **** is even the point? I imagine the people that love that **** so much probably either don't listen to country or got into it after the Rolling Stones. They can still burn down the house with more rock oriented songs, like "Brown Sugar, but even then they have a certain polish that makes them feel too squeaky clean.

To this day I am intensely bored by the Rolling Stones.
Sympathy For The Devil is a great song though.

Suppose I knew a cool party chick in college. When we bumped into each other at parties and shows she was almost always up for a ****. She liked great music and was cool in every way. One time a few years after we graduated I ended up broke but she was married and doing alright. I called her to ask if I could borrow 20 bucks to buy some groceries and she gave me a grand and insisted it was a gift.

Now you want me to say what was **** about her. **** that. I’m not thinking up ways to **** on the UNASSAILABLE Rolling Stones after how much they’ve done for me.

They made the most visceral violent rock’n’roll ever and I ****ing worship them like gods.

Mother****er

Totally agree. Beggar's Banquet is not the intro album. If anything I'd say it was Aftermath. It's got more class than their earlier albums while still having balls. I'd say it's everything great about the sixties with none of the self-indulgent hippy tripe or self-indulgent rock star faux-experimental schlock. They're writing their own songs finally, writing great songs, and showing a maturity you'd never expect from the band who covered "Route 66". But of course if you're woke like me you'd understand that the band who covered "Route 66" were rock n roll gods who didn't need to mature in the first place. And of course you should go for the UK versions in general, but an argument could be made for the US version since it actually has "Paint It Black" (but it also doesn't have "Mother's Little Helper" and that song is amazing).

Aftermath UK version


Aftermath US version

Translation: I do in fact have serious criticisms about them but I'm a ****ing pansy.

I mean now you can just go **** yourself. The man could sing just about any kind of song and still sound like the beating heart and soul of rock n roll while making it sound easy.
