Big Red Mouth
The iconic red lips and tongue logo for the Rolling Stones was created in 1970. Mick Jagger originally wanted the logo to be based off Kali, the Hindu Goddess of Death. However, Pasche, the designer hired by the Stones, thought that a logo of Kali would be dated quickly, and, rather, envisioned a simple and timeless design. Pasche decided to focus on the lips and tongue of Kali, creating the iconic logo seen today. Known as the "Big Red Mouth," this logo has also come to represent Jagger's lips and the logo has been part of every official statement, music release, and poster since. While many variations have been created for different situations, all keep the same, iconic base of a mouth and tongue, and is often considered the best band logo in history.
The Rolling Stones
One of the most iconic and popular bands of the rock era, The Rolling Stones formed in 1962. Known as "the group that parents loved to hate," the Rolling Stones had a rebellious reputation, with long hair and a bad-boy presence. Being seen as the opposite of the Beatles and their good-boy attitude, the Rolling Stones also made huge strides in the development of the genre.
Their popularity grew at a rapid pace, and the Rolling Stones went on to dominate rock and roll. Having been active for the last 6 decades, among other notable awards and accomplishments, The Rolling Stones have won 11 Grammy awards, including a Grammy for lifetime achievement in 1987. Their popularity and presence continues today, and they were instrumental in creating the spirit behind the genre.
