"Undercover of the Night" (1983)

The Rolling Stones
Peter Still/Redferns

The murky, clattering sound and Julien Temple's action-thriller video weren't the only things that set "Undercover of the Night" apart. It's a rare overtly politicized diatribe ("100,000 diasporas/Lost in the jails in South America," Jagger sang), with a unique echo-drenched production that took its cues from dub reggae and added to the song's unsettling, jittery vibe.
