This Day In Rock History: “Some Girls” by The Rolling Stones

December 28th, 1978

Rolling Stone magazine voted “Some Girls” by The Rolling Stones ‘Album of the Year.’

“Some Girls” is the 14th British and 16th American studio album by The Rolling Stones, released on June 9th, 1978. Some Girls is ranked number 270 on Rolling Stone magazine’s list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.
“Keith fuckin’ gets busted every year,” Mick Jagger fumed. Keith Richards was in drug hell, and the Stones were verging on destruction, but they bounced back with “Miss You,” the sleazy “Shattered” and “When the Whip Comes Down.” Richards does his best song, “Before They Make Me Run.”
