: The stones are never going to create a hip song if they change to suite the masses.
: Don't ever tell them what they can and can't do. If you think that Mick's songs are no good now and outdated because he is occasionally anti women, then you need to learn a bit about human nature.
:Lets hope they don't sell out and listen to you
Let me clue you in to a bit about human nature, a guy singing about prostitutes is going to have a subzero appeal factor to most women. OOC was obviously aimed at men and still didn't do well. The Stones have from the very beginning made countless gender neutral hit songs. I don't remotely consider it "selling out" for them to return to these roots.
:Right now, the stones are walking a fine line between selling out and kicking ass again.
Considering each album sells progressively less, I don't see any basis for such blind optimism.
