Fifty-plus years after their 1962 debut, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards and the rest of the gang are still selling out stadiums to generations of screaming rock and roll fans. The Rolling Stones have lived through it all, and their hits still hold up against any pop song of the last half-century—can’t you hear “Satisfaction” and “Paint it Black” right now?
While their early sound was based on American blues, this Rolling Stones t-shirt pays tribute to the band’s English roots with a Union Jack version of the famous “Tongue and Lips” logo. The provocative design was first introduced in 1971 on the Sticky Fingers album (which boasted both “Brown Sugar” and “Wild Horses”), and was created by English designer John Pasche and modified by Craig Braun who designed the album’s packaging.
