Some Girls track listing

"When the Whip Comes Down" is a song by rock and roll band The Rolling Stones from their 1978 album Some Girls.

"When the Whip Comes Down" was written by Mick Jagger and Keith Richards, although Jagger handled the song's lyrics. Quite unusual, even for the late 1970s, the lyrics deal openly with the perspective of a gay man:

In a 1978 interview with Rolling Stone magazine to mark the release of Some Girls, Jagger responded to questions regarding the song's lyrics: "...There is one song that's a straight gay song - "When the Whip Comes Down" - but I have no idea why I wrote it. It's strange - the Rolling Stones have always attracted a lot of men... I don't know why I wrote it. Maybe I came out of the closet {laughs}. It's about an imaginary person who comes from L.A. to New York City and becomes a garbage collector... I sure hope the radio stations will play [it]." The lyrics could be taken to imply that the singer becomes a male prostitute,

"When the Whip Comes Down" was recorded at the Pathé Marconi Studios in Paris, France, between the months of October and December 1977. It was another of the famed Some Girls songs to feature just the core members of the Rolling Stones at the time. Jagger performed vocals plus guitar alongside Richards and Ronnie Wood. Wood would also contribute pedal steel guitar to the number, an instrument that also appears on the Some Girls songs "Shattered" and "Far Away Eyes". Bill Wyman performs bass while Charlie Watts plays the song's distinctive, driving beat. There are versions of both the base instrumental track and the fully developed backing track with additional lyrics, that run over ten minutes, widely available on bootlegs.

"When the Whip Comes Down" is seen by some Rolling Stones fans[who?] as the closest the Stones came to outright punk music on the album that many[who?] call the Stones' "punk album". It is also one of a few songs on the album to carry a heavy New York City influence. A majority of the Rolling Stones were living in New York at the time.

A recording from a live show at the Detroit Masonic Temple, on 6 July 1978, was released on the 1981 compilation album Sucking in the Seventies, which covered much of their later 1970s material. It also acted as album mate "Respectable"'s B-side. A live recording from their 2002–2003 Licks Tour was captured and released on the 2004 live album Live Licks.

When the Whip Comes Down is also the name of a 16-track Nine Inch Nails bootleg album taken from their performance at the Woodstock '94 music festival.[citation needed]
