  • To be on it is to be recognized, is to make it, especially in a world where every week, something that used to mean "making it" kinda goes extinct.
  • It's the Bible, you know. If you want to know what's being said on the streets, Rolling Stone tells you the truth. I've always believed everything, or almost everything, I read in there.
  • We take all kind of pills that give us all kind of thrills,
    But the thrill we've never known
    Is the thrill that'll get ya when you get your picture
    On the cover of the Rolling Stone.

    Rollin' Stone,
    Wanna see my picture on the cover.
    Wanna buy five copies for my mother [Yeah!]
    Wanna see my smilin' face, on the cover,
    The cover of the Rollin Stone.
