The Rolling Stones Song of the Day is- Rip This Joint- on Side 1- song 2 of Exile On Main St. Written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards- this 2:23 song is one of the quickest songs The Stones have done- Keith would say of the songs tempo- “It’s one of the fastest ones of the lot and it really keeps you on your toes”

Bill Janovitz writes of the song- “The result is a frenetic pace that approaches the tempos played by hardcore punk bands roughly ten years later, certainly recognizing the raw excitement of early roots rock & roll years before … Though the band most likely did not sit down and preconceive it as such, the record seems to set out to cover nothing less than the wide-open spaces of America itself via the nation’s music – from urban soul to down-home country to New Orleans jazz. ‘Rip This Joint’ sets the tone for this journey, as a modern-day “Route 66” travelogue from Birmingham to San Diego.”
