Many legendary rock bands and artist have began their careers playing cover songs from the bands that influenced them, that includes the Rolling Stones.

The Rolling Stones began their career recording songs that had already been written and recorded by other groups at the time, including the song that introduced them to America.

Originally written and recorded by Buddy Holly and the Crickets in 1957, their version never charted.

In 1964, at the beginning of the British Invasion of America, the Rolling Stones released their version as the first single for the band in the USA.

Although it hit the top five in the UK, it only reached position 47 on the US Billboard Charts.
