Rock Rewind: Rolling Stones “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction”

A significant mile marker: it was on this day in 1965 (May 12) that the Rolling Stones first recorded the song “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction,” which turned out to be their first Number 1 hit in the states, according to thisdayinmusic.com. So it just seemed appropriate to post this live music performance as this week’s “Rock Rewind.”

The video below is excerpted from the Stones’ documentary film Gimme Shelter, which was directed by the legendary Martin Scorsese. (The performance itself, obviously, is much older.) Enjoy!

About the Author


Tim Ferrar's interest in pop and rock started as a child, listening to Top-40 radio for hours on end while playing air guitar in his bedroom. Eventually air guitar led to electric guitar, and Tim began playing in bands and writing his own songs. With an admitted weakness for "a great hook or a great guitar riff," Tim's musical tastes are broad and varied, ranging from Michael Jackson and Lady Gaga on the pop side to Bon Jovi and Foo Fighters on the rock side- making him the ideal guy to cover our Rock and Pop categories. By day, Tim is a mild-mannered accountant in Chicago. By night, he rocks out on electric guitar in a cover band in various clubs around town- much to the surprise of some of his clients.
