Catchy and great song

Such a brilliant Stones tune, and quite possibly one of the best anti-war (Vietnam) songs as well.

Gimme Shelter from Let It Bleed is simply the best song from one of rock's greatest bands. To hear it is to take you to a magic time when there were dreams and hope.

I'll bet you didn't know that Mick came very close to being killed by Hells Angels members on Long Island. They were on their way by boat to his rented Hamptons house and had some kind of drug fueled fight, killing each other instead!! Go Bikers! Far out groovy man!!

AWESOME SONG

Such a good song that just forces your attention to what mick jager has to say. And you better give him some sheltee because hes in need for it with the catchy guitar melody and the bass n drums with the beautiful mind blowing chorus in the background. This is my favorite rolling stone hit that always had a spark left inside me making me want to listen to it another time.

Sort of creepy backstory but great song

I'm a hunter , searching for love, on these lonely streets again, searching for the things that I may never find again - from the backstreets comes a rambling, smell of anarchy, God knows when I'm coming home, heaven helps those who help themselves , God knows I will not wait till tomorrow - hold on tight till the end ... Underneath my feet the grass is growing ... Lights out

My history teacher played this song in class. We were learning about the horrors of the Vietnam War, which is what this song reflects on.
