No. 96: ‘Rock and a Hard Place’ – Top 100 Rolling Stones Songs

Rolling Stones

Reminding us of the rock ‘n’ roll-like feel of hits such as ‘Start Me Up’ — one of the many tunes that made us fall in love with the Rolling Stones — ‘Rock and a Hard Place’ shows up on the album that’s most famous for reviving the relationship of bandmates Mick Jagger and Keith Richards. We’re speaking, of course, of 1989′s ‘Steel Wheels.’

The track, credited to both Mick and Keith, remains the most recent Billboard top 40 hit by the Stones. It’s hard to believe, we agree. Although some fans prefer the more rough-edged sound of the band’s earlier work, this chrome-polished number delivers the riffs and rhythms that made them the world’s biggest band.
