They both do "Roll Over Beethoven," though the Stones' version is only from their unreleased BBC sessions. It's a cover by their collective (!) heroes, so neither group does too much to change the arrangement. George sings, kind of removing the feeling, and Mick kind of removes the subtlety (this is like 1963-64), making it sound as though he's singing to a girl or he really wants to tell the DJ what for! Neither is as good as the original, but the Stones drive it a little more.

IMO, "Money" by the Stones is not very good at all, while the Beatles' version is excellent.
