On July 10, 1965, one of the iconic songs in rock and roll history reached the top of the singles chart in the United States.
One of the most famous riffs in music history was born late at night when Keith Richards couldn’t sleep. He kept playing the chords over and over and finally recorded them into a small cassette player. And so “Satisfaction” was born.
Richards never intended for the song to be released as a single. Luckily he was over ruled and it became their first American number one, staying on top for four weeks.
