When the Beatles ceased to exist in 1970, the title of “World’s Greatest Rock ‘n’ Roll Band” fell with very little dispute to the Rolling Stones, who by then were at such a creative peak that they might have challenged the Fab Four for the title anyway. It’s a title the one-time “anti-Beatles” haven’t relinquished since. Not only have the Stones been the greatest rock band in the world for more than 40 years, but they have been functioning rock ‘n’ roll unit for more than 50 years, the longest run in musical history.

Take up the mantle and grow beyond!
