The Rolling Stones are a legendary British rock act, fronted by Mick Jagger. The Stones changed music for the better through the 1960s and the 1970s and have since been ranked among the greatest acts of all time.

When it came time to leave Decca Records in 1970 and start their own label, Rolling Stones Records, the band was told to record one more single in order to fulfill their old contract, so in an attempt to screw with the label they released '60s classics like "Satisfaction" and "Paint it Black" on, the Stones cut the profane "Schoolboy Blues" as their last Decca effort[1], although it was alternatively titled "C---sucker Blues" (also the name of a lost 1970s Stones documentary) due to the chorus, which goes: "Oh, where can I get my c--- sucked?/Where can I get my a-- f---ed?/I may have no money/But I know where to put it every time."

Due to the profanity contained in the aforementioned chorus, Decca left the song abandoned in their vaults while the Stones were off releasing albums like Exile on Main Street through their new label. In some sort of accident, "Schoolboy Blues" was sent upon the world via the Germany-exclusive, four-LP The Rest of the Best box set in 1983, only to be pulled and reissued sans the offending track four weeks later. Many years since then, with the creation of the Internet, "Schoolboy/C---sucker Blues" has inevitably shown up on torrent sites and on YouTube.[2]
