Stones Turn 50!

This has already been way overdone in the media, but I am sure my imaginary readers are expecting me to at least acknowledge it.

Today is the day, July 12, marking the 50th anniversary of the Stones first gig in 1962.  No need to belabor the point, but it's pretty incredible for a rock band to be so relevant for so long.

    At what current age level are the Stones irrelevant ?
    4th of July party unscientific poll results for different music bands / artists by 8th / 9th grade girls:

    Billy Squire - who?
    J Geils Band - I have heard of them, from Boston right ?
    C. Lo Green - flash in the pan (see Billy Squire)
    Taylor Swift - awesome forever
    Justin Timberlake - he is ovaaaa
    Justin Bieber - he is OK
    One Direction - they are the best
    Adelle - best voice evaaa "love her" (Jeff quote "she my best all time voice")
    Rolling Stones - my dad listens to them ALLL the time.
