"Doom and Gloom" is the lead single taken from GRRR!, the 50th anniversary compilation album by The Rolling Stones. It was premiered on BBC Radio 2 on 11 October 2012. The song's recording marked the first time that Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood had been in the studio together for seven years, since completing their 2005 album A Bigger Bang.[1] A lyric video was released on YouTube the same day.[2]

The song charted at #61 on the UK Singles Chart, #26 on the Billboard Japan Hot 100 and #30 on the Billboard Rock Songs chart in October 2012.

Rolling Stone named "Doom and Gloom" the eighteenth best song of 2012.[3]

The song was played in the end credits to A Good Day to Die Hard.


The song's opening riff is played by Jagger.[4] Richards commented on Jagger being the driving force behind the song and Jagger playing the opening riff: "I don't give a damn. He'd never have learned how to play that without me teaching him how to do it."[5]

Music video[edit]

A music video for the song was released on 20 November 2012 and was directed by Jonas Åkerlund at the Cité du Cinéma in Saint-Denis starring Noomi Rapace.
