Lockdown Riffs #5

(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction

The Rolling Stones


It doesn't really get any more Rock & Roll than Satisfaction. Keith Richards wrote the riff for this song in his sleep, stole the title from a Chuck Berry lyric (30 Days) and single-handedly proliferated fuzz as a thing in the world with the veritable Maestro FZ-1 Fuzz-Tone pedal. In 1965. Probably with a cigarette hanging out of his mouth the whole time. Legendary stuff, and one of the greatest songs of all time.
