Decca Records

1968: The Rolling Stones release "Beggars Banquet," which includes songs such as "Sympathy for the Devil," "No Expectations" and "Street Fighting Man." The album would hit No. 3 on the charts in the United Kingdom and No. 5 on the U.S. Billboard 200 album chart. The album is also known for its simple white cover imitating an invitation card, complete with an RSVP, chosen by the band after the originally planned cover, a graffiti-covered lavatory wall, was rejected by Decca Records in England and London Records in the United States.
