The Rolling Stones Get Cheeky With Their 404 Error Page

By: Josh Wolford - July 13, 2012

Clever 404 error pages are a dime a dozen on the interwebs – and for good reason. If you’re going to disappoint someone searching for a particular page on your site, you might as well entertain them in the process.

But in a world overpopulated with clever (and not-so-clever) error pages, this might be my favorite.

If you come across a non-existent page over at The Rolling Stones’ official website, Mick and the boys will calmly let you know that you can’t always get what you want – complete with a video of the famous song and all:

The video is a live performance from 2003 at London’s Twickenham Stadium. Of course, “You Can’t Always Get What You Want” is one of the most revered track in rock history, having first appeared in 1969 on the Stones’ seminal album Let it Bleed. Yesterday, the band celebrated the 50th anniversary of their first concert ever – July 12th, 1962 at The Marquee Club in London.

Thanks for the life lesson, Mick.
