The Stones sell out

I've never particularly cared for the Rolling Stones. Now I've got one more reason:
They haven't had a No. 1 album since "Tattoo You" in 1981.
. . .
But the most searing moment, on a song called "Sweet Neo Con," isn't personal but political. "You call yourself a Christian, I call you a hypocrite/You call yourself a patriot, well I think you're full of st." "It is direct," Jagger says with a laugh. "Keith said [he breaks into a dead-on Keith imitation], 'It's not really metaphorical.' I think he's a bit worried because he lives in the U.S." Jagger smiles. "But I don't."
Ooh, how edgy, how daring. No rock band has ever done anything remotely like this before. The same people who huff "don't question my patriotism" will undoubtedly line up around the block to buy this groundbreaking work of art. The Stones are like, so hip and relevant. I'm suitably impressed.

Via Reason Hit and Run.
