Weekend Rock Question: What Is Your Favorite Rolling Stones Album?

Cast your vote in our weekly poll

August 17, 2012 2:50 PM ET

As Rolling Stones fans well know, this year is the band's 50th anniversary. For the past couple of years, rumors have swirled that the group will reunite for a tour sometime in 2012. Mick Jagger has indicated that the band might play some gigs in the fall, but the clock is starting to tick and there's not even a hint that they have actually booked a show. 

Whether or not they actually tour, we still have 22 Stones albums to enjoy, from 1964's The Rolling Stones though 2005's A Bigger Bang

Now we have a question for you: What's your single favorite Rolling Stones album? Feel free to get weird with this one. If you love Voodoo Lounge or Goat's Head Soup, just own it. There's no judgement here. This is a safe place. But please, just vote once and only for one album. If we suddenly see 900 votes for Bridges to Babylon, we'll know something's up.

“American Girl”

Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers | 1976

It turns out that a single with "American" in its title--recorded on the Fourth of July during the nation's Bicentennial, no less--can actually sell better in Britain. Coupled with the Heartbreakers' flair for Byrds jangle and Animals hooks, though, is Tom Petty's native-Florida drawl that keeps this classic grounded at home. Petty dispelled rumors that the song was about a suicidal student, explaining that the inspiration came from when he was 25 and used to salute the highway traffic outside his apartment window. "It sounded like the ocean to me," he recalled. "That was my ocean. My Malibu. Where I heard the waves crash, but it was just the cars going by."
