The Rolling Stones are on tour this summer with a set list heavy on their 1960s and 1970s work, mixed in with a few new tracks like “Doom and Gloom” and a smattering of 1990s tunes like “You Got Me Rocking” and “Out of Control.” Outside of “Start Me Up” and a very occasional “She Was Hot,” they aren’t really touching their 1980s catalog. No would would argue it was their peak, but they released five albums that decade and more than a few stellar songs.

Now we have a question for you: What is the best Rolling Stones song of the 1980s? Feel free to vote for a hit like “Start Me Up” or “Waiting on a Friend,” something from left field like “Emotional Rescue” or something widely forgotten like “Back to Zero” or “Hold Back.” There’s also the option of both “She’s So Cold” and its quasi-sequel song “She Was Hot.” Vote for whatever song you want as long as it came out in the 1980s. Just please only vote once and only for a single selection.
