No discussion, everyone. Just list your opinions and move along. People will read them and react as if nothing happened. Carry on with your lives.

This is why I shudder at the thought of having kids.

Carry on.

What are your favorite Stones songs/albums?



Because every Beatles fan is waiting at the library outside of the bar that all of the Stones fans frequent.
1. "Hey Jude" is a good one, but I wouldn't put it in my list of favorite Beatles songs. It's all personal taste, sure, but that one never "did it" for me.

I guess I should let it be known that I'm 23 years old. I never experienced "Beatlemania" and the Beatles' impact on the world was learned, not experienced, in my case.

2. My favorite Stones songs and albums normally come out of that "golden" period: Beggars Banquet, Let It Bleed, Sticky Fingers, and Exile on Main Street. Exile would probably be my favorite. Though I also really liked Some Girls and Undercover of the Night. The only real "bleh" Rolling Stones albums, in my opinion, were Dirty Work, Steel Wheels, Bridges to Babylon, and half of Voodoo Lounge. I'm not crazy about A Bigger Bang either, to be honest. Basically everything after Tattoo You I'm not into.

Favorite Stones songs? "Shine A Light", "Rocks Off", "Tumbling Dice", and "No Expectations", and "Brown Sugar".

3. I think you missed my point with the "bookworm" thing. I agree that that's a ridiculous thing to say, but it seems that when people ask that question "Beatles or Stones" that that's what they're implying. I didn't say it was correct, I said that was how it was.

I'm younger than you and can relate to what you're talking about re: Beatlemania and such.

Sweet, that's where I'd be regarding the Stones as well. I'd put Goats Head Soup and Satanic Majesties Request on the short-list of awesome albums though. Good song picks, too. "Gimme Shelter" is my favorite song of all-time. OF ALL-TIME.

I'm not sure if I agree with that statement either. Most of the people that ask that question mostly consider post-Help! Beatles vs. "Golden Age" Stones, as you'd call it, from my experience with it. It's like asking The Who vs. Zeppelin or something. They're only drawing from a specific period for each band as opposed to an entire body of work.

The Stones' initial success came out of the fact that they were the "bad boy" alternative to The Beatles anyway, and I kind of take that into consideration when I compare the two acts.

Forgot about "Gimme Shelter". Definitely a classic.

I agree that the Stones' initial success came out of being the bad boy alternative to The Beatles, but once again, much like Beatlemania, I'm free from that historical perspective. I just view it all at once: 40 years later, which act's songs do I like more?

This isn't meant to be Beatle-bashing on my part, by the way. Or Lennon bashing. I like the Beatles a lot (though I do have to admit that I was always late to that party). I just like the Stones more. Similarly, I like a lot of Lennon's songs. It's just McCartney's always did more for me.

Anyway, it's bedtime in Baltimore. Continue tomorrow?

Tumbling Dice was what won me over for Exile, after disliking it, or not getting it, for ages. Which album is Gimme Shelter on? I've wanted Beggars Banquet for years but it's always been to expensive.

is so special about this guy? I'm partially echoing a friend of mine's sentiments, but I agree with him for the most part.

Why do all these *legendary* musicians keep kissing this guy's ass? McCartney, Chris Squire, the Rush guys, Mike Portnoy, to now John Paul Jones in this new *supergroup* he's in with the Josh Homme from another highly overated band in Queens of the Stone Age.

Seriously, why in the blue fuck does this guy keep getting heaps of praise? Nirvana sucked all kinds of ass, and more or less became the most over-rated band of the last 20 years, if not ever. And The Foo Fighters pretty much milked the fact he came from Nirvana, and arguably, are even worse, lol.

What makes him so fucking special? There's literally hundreds of other musicians that have shown an infinite amount of more talent, than this clown. Perhaps he, like Cobain, has found some kind of way to hypnotically cause them to like him and his music. Otherwise, it's highly baffling, and the music industry would be a far-better place if he'd just go the fuck away.

"Tumbling Dice" is one of their best songs by a wide margin, and that's coming from a Stones fan who considers himself more of a Beatles fan. It's is on my Mount Rushmore of Stones songs along with "Gimme Shelter," "Moonlight Mile," and "Wild Horses." And "Gimme Shelter" is on Let It Bleed, one of the two Stones old LPs I own along with an original pressing of Sticky Fingers complete with zipper. Need to grab a few more of their LPs.

The post above mine is baffling. I don't know whether to attack what a blatant lie the user name is or how poorly written the quoted article was.
