3. The Rolling Stones - 'Doom and Gloom'
When the Rolling Stones decided to launch a new tour this year, they didn't have time to record a new studio album. Instead, they released a 50th anniversary compilation album with two new songs. The lead single, "Doom and Gloom," is surprisingly strong. It would have been a standout moment on any of their recent albums. Oddly enough, the opening guitar riff is played by Mick Jagger. "I don't give a damn," Keith Richards said. "He'd never have learned how to play that without me teaching him how to do it."
