Jagger has been famous for his electrifying performances with his band The Rolling Stones. They gained prominence in 1960s as one of the British Invasion of bands, a phenomenon that saw the rise of bands such as The Beatles, the Dave Clark Five, the Kinks, Herman's Hermits, and the Animals.
Championing the counterculture movement of the 60s, they won the hearts of the youth with hits such as ‘Honky Tonk Women' and 'Paint it Black.’ At one point, they were also introduced as ’The Greatest Rock and Roll Band in the World’. Their song ‘I Can’t Get No Satisfaction’ is seen as the ‘classic example of rock and roll’.
In July 2017, Jagger released a double-A side politically charged single ‘Gotta Get a Grip’ / ‘England Lost’ that was released during the “anxiety, unknowability of the changing political situation” during Brexit, according to Jagger. The single reached number 2 on Billboard's Singles Sales chart.
