Album covers for albums by The Rolling Stones, found by OneMusicAPI.

The Rolling Stones are an English rock band that originated in London and were founded in April 1962. The group initially consisted of Brian Jones on guitar and harmonica, Ian Stewart on Piano, Mick Jagger on lead vocals and the harmonica, Charlie Watts on drums, Keith Richards on guitar and backup vocals and Bill Wyman on bass guitar. Although Jones became the initial leader of the band, Mick Jagger and Keith Richards replaced him mainly because they were the ones who wrote most of their songs.

The band became immensely popular in Europe and together with The Beatles, they invaded the United States as their albums began to unleash their amazing talent, making them all the more famous particularly in the rock genre. They released a total of 22 albums in the United Kingdom and 24 albums in the United States with tracks that had a place in the billboard charts almost as soon as they have launched them. They were included in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1989 while the Rolling Stone magazine has given them the fourth place under the category of 100 Greatest Artists of All Times. The Billboard Magazine stated that they are number ten on the Billboard Hot 100 Top All Time making them the second most successful rock band (after The Beatles) in the Billboard Hot 100 Chart. Because of these achievements, their group has become a household name, with their popularity continuing, evidenced by the success of newer albums such as A Bigger Bang (2005).

Their songs have been greatly influenced by rhythm and blues, soul music, jazz, progressive rock, soft metal and other traditional genres that made them one of a kind in so many ways.
