Billed as The Rollin' Stones, Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Brian Jones, Ian Stewart, Mick Taylor and Tony Chapman took to the stage at London's Marquee Club on July 12, 1962.
To celebrate that momentous day in pop music, the band met up at the site yesterday, and we've rounded up ten of our favourite Rolling Stones live videos.
We'll admit that we've tended towards their first, stunning decade, and we've also made room for one cheeky studio playback and a Jagger solo movie clip.
'Time Is On My Side'
'Heart Of Stone'
'Under My Thumb'
'(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction'
'Memo From Turner'
'Jumpin' Jack Flash'
