Out of Our Heads: Why You Are Not Your Brain

Out of Our Heads is the third British and fourth American studio album by the English rock band the Rolling Stones. Although they share the same title, the two have significant differences in the track listings. In the US, London Records released it on 30 July 1965 and it became the group's first number one on the Billboard 200 album chart. Decca Records released it in the UK on 24 September 1965, where it reached number two.

As with the prior two albums, it consists mostly of covers of American blues, soul and R&B songs, though the band wrote some of their own material for this album (4 out of the 12 tracks on the UK version, and 6 out of 12 for the US version). The American version contains "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction", which would be the band's first number one US hit, and would go on to top the charts in 10 other countries, including the band's native UK, and being ranked as the second greatest song of all time by Rolling Stone. Besides the key band members of singer Mick Jagger, guitarists Brian Jones and Keith Richards, bassist Bill Wyman, and drummer Charlie Watts, the album also contains musical contributions from former Rolling Stones member Ian Stewart, and frequent collaborator Jack Nitzsche. It was produced by the band's manager Andrew Loog Oldham.
