Rolling Stones Cancel Themselves: Won't Play 'Brown Sugar' over Slavery Lyrics Criticism


The Rolling Stones announced Tuesday the rock band will no longer perform the hit song Brown Sugar amid accusations the 50-year-old classic is linked to the subjugation of slaves.

Mick Jagger and Keith Richards made the announcement while on tour in the U.S. as part of a 13-date schedule.

The pair said they have not put Brown Sugar — one of the UK band’s most recognizable songs — on their playlist since kicking off in St Louis on September 26.

The 1969 song has been a staple of their live show since it came out and is the second most played song in their collection after Jumpin’ Jack Flash, with 1,136 known performances, according to Rolling Stone magazine.
