# 10 – Black and Blue
The Rolling Stones album Black and Blue was released in 1976. The album was released in a gate-fold which presented the rest of the band on the back cover. The close up shot of Mick Jagger somewhat listening to Keith Richards in the forefront, with Bill Wyman standing in the background left the meaning behind the shot wide open for interpretation.

# 7 – December’s Children (And Everybody’s)
In 1965, the Rolling Stones released their 5th American studio album entitled December’s Children. Simply just a very cool black and white cover.
# 6 – Some Girls
The original Rolling Stones album cover of Some Girls was one of their most creative and interesting covers the band ever released. Too bad it only lasted a few weeks on the shelves at records stores because of the use of celebrity photos on the cover. Its the original version that lands the sixth spot on our Top 10 Rolling Stones Album Covers List.

# 4 – Their Satanic Majesties Request

# 3 – Tattoo You

# 2 – Exile on Main Street
The depth of the cover of Exile On Main Street gave fans an exceptional cover to stare at for hours and hours.
# 1 – Sticky Fingers
Record companies have utilized many clever gimmicks over the years in constructing rare album covers. Andy Warhol’s design and implementation of a zipper was pure genius and a brilliant meeting of two legendary artists. Like all albums that featured a gimmick, only the initial releases of the album featured the mechanical zipper.Its hard to even find a picture of this iconic Rolling Stones album cover.
