This led the group to a very successful path especially with the release of their song Satisfaction, which proved to be their great breakthrough. The song was perceived to be a great threat to the older audience since it produced a lot of attitude both in its lyrics and in its soundtrack and the way the song was preformed by The Rolling Stones. The song later became an all purpose and anti-development anthem with large applicability since it was the best fit for its time and audience.

The group began simply as a songwriting partnership and grew slowly to become a rock band. Their first performance was at the Marquee club in 1962.
