49 Years Ago Today: The Rolling Stones “Satisfaction” Was Born

One of the most iconic hooks in rock history was created on this day back in 1965. Keith Richards woke up in a Clearwater, Florida motel room and grabbed his guitar. He hit record on his tape recorder and recorded the hook to the Rolling Stones tune (I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction. He played for about 30 seconds and passed back out. When he woke up, he rewound the tape to find the Stones classic. “It was about 30 seconds of riffs and 45 minutes of snoring.” Keith said.

It was Keith Richards who came up with the line “I can’t get no satisfaction.” Click here to see the full story on this great moment in classic rock history.
