Street Fighting Man (4:07)

Cover of Beggars Banquet

From Beggars Banquet and 45 other releases

This highly political song was inspired by political activist Tariq Ali and the French Student Movement. It was released as a single off the “Beggar’s Banquet” album in the summer of 1968, a year full of political and social unrest, which saw violent confrontations between young political activists in both France and The United States.

The song, released in 1968, was seen as continuing the Stone’s return to their earthy blues and rock & roll based roots after the psychedelic experimentation of Their Satanic Majesties Request.
