Rolling Stones Capture the Moment, almost

The world's greatest rock band just released their 100 & something-th single, their first new single in six years. The conceit? Doom And Gloom. The song takes on society's fall and the effects on modern media saturation on Mick's mood. Credited with having captured the spirit of the 60s and the 70s, and remaining on the cutting edge of live performance throughout the 80s, 90s, & 00s, Mick, Keith & Charlie (and Ron) get a whole new kind of dirty in this new sing along.

"Put cha feet up on the couch and lock all the doo-oors."

References to fracking for oil (?), and running out of water make this the first song where The Stones acknowledge the environment. One reasonable response to the litany of negativity that is this song, "Let's clean it up then, shall we?" But somehow with The Stones in charge one doesn't get the feeling that'll ever happen.

A great diddy, except for the digital editing... C'mon Stones!
