Mick Jagger and The Rolling Stones have both joined TikTok and posted their first videos. Guitarist Keith Richards is already on the popular social media platform, having signed up in late 2021.

Jagger's first video finds the sprightly frontman in typically energetic form, jigging around enthusiastically to the sounds of the Stones' 1968 classic Sympathy For The Devil. 

"Hello TikTok!" exclaims Jagger, pointing at the camera. "We have joined your world!"

He goes on to instruct viewers to follow both him and the band, before expressing anticipation about what fans will get up to with the Stones' back catalogue and signing off with a trademark squeal.

Richards' latest message, meanwhile, finds the guitarist on what appears to be a tropical island, wishing followers a happy new year before promising that new music from the band is on the way.  

The Rolling Stones' full back catalogue is now available for TikTok users to use in their videos – fans are being encouraged to "move like Jagger, shred like Keith and show off their best stones-inspired looks."
