“Jumpin’ Jack Flash” is a song by English rock band The Rolling Stones, released as a single in 1968. Called “supernatural Delta blues by way of Swinging London” by Rolling Stone, the song was perceived by some as the band’s return to their blues roots after the psychedelia of their preceding albums Aftermath (1966), Between the Buttons (1967), Flowers (1967) and Their Satanic Majesties Request (1967). One of the group’s most popular and recognizable songs, it has featured in films and been covered by numerous performers, notably Aretha Franklin, Tina Turner and Johnny Winter.
