The Rolling Stones made major headlines today (January 19) with their arrival on TikTok with the handle @therollingstones.
The iconic rock band is the latest legacy act to join the popular social media platform. Along with joining TikTok, the Stones’ biggest hit songs are now available for use on the platform. Among the songs available are “Start Me Up,” “(I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction,” “Paint It, Black,” “Gimme Shelter” and more.
In addition to the launch of the Rolling Stones’ TikTok account, Mick Jagger has also joined. His individual account has the handle @jagger. Jagger’s first TikTok can be seen below and shows the singer saying hello to TikTok and playfully singing and dancing to “Sympathy For The Devil.” (Notably, Keith Richards joined TikTok in December 2021 with the handle @officialkeef.)
