June 12, 1971: The Rolling Stones released "Wild Horses" from the album Sticky Fingers.

"Wild Horses" was recorded over three days at Muscle Shoals Sound Studio in Alabama during 2–4 December 1969 while Albert and David Maysles were shooting for the film Gimme Shelter. The song was not released until over a year later due to legal wranglings with the band's former label.
