"Come On" was chosen as the Rolling Stones' debut single. Released in the late spring of 1963, it reached #21 on the UK single charts. The B-side was the Stones' arrangement of Willie Dixon's "I Want to Be Loved". Both songs were recorded in May 1963. "Come On" has been released on several compilation albums: More Hot Rocks (Big Hits & Fazed Cookies) (1972), Singles Collection: The London Years (1989) (together with its B-side), Singles 1963-1965 (2004) (together with its B-side), Rolled Gold+: The Very Best of the Rolling Stones (2007) and GRRR! (2012).[1]

During the 6 June 2013 concert in Toronto, Canada, as part of the "50 & Counting Tour", Mick Jagger sang a few bars (with Charlie Watts drumming the beat) after mentioning the single being released exactly 50 years ago that day. It was the first time the song was heard in any capacity during a Rolling Stones concert since 1965.
