Here's some stats:

"Honky Tonk Women" is The Rolling Stones biggest U.S. Hot 100 hit.

It narrowly beats the song "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction"

Each of these songs were a #1 hit for 4 weeks.

What gives "Honky Tonk Women" the slight edge is that it spent a total of 14 weeks in the Top 40, while "(I Can't Get No) Satisfaction" only spent a total of 12 weeks in the Top 40.

"Angie" (as CJ said), was #1 for only 1 week. It spent a total of 13 weeks in the Top 40.
