The Rolling Stones recorded “Satisfaction” in Los Angeles

A song by the English rock band The Rolling Stones. It was written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards and produced by Andrew Loog Oldham. The lyrics refer to sexual frustration and commercialism. The song was first released as a single in the United States in June 1965 and was also featured on the American version of the Rolling Stones’ fourth studio album, Out of Our Heads, released that July.

The Rolling Stones first recorded the track on 10 May 1965 at Chess Studios in Chicago, Illinois. The group re-recorded it two days later at RCA Studios in Hollywood, California, with a different beat and the Maestro fuzzbox adding sustain to the sound of the guitar riff. Like most of the Stones’ pre-1966 recordings, “Satisfaction” was originally released in mono only. “Satisfaction” was a hit, giving the Stones their first number one in the US.
