It's always great to hear an unexpected oldie at a concert, and The Rolling Stones provided a major throwback on Tuesday, performing "Silver Train" for the first time in 41 years.

The 1973 song was the B-side for the band's No. 1 single "Angie." Each of the Rolling Stones' gigs on their current On Fire tour allows fans to select one song to add to the setlist, which is why Tuesday's show in Tokyo featured "Silver Train." The vote was so tight that the band decided to add the runner-up -- 1994's "You Got Me Rocking" -- to the set as well. Guitarist Mick Taylor, who left the Stones in 1974, joined the band for the "Silver Train" performance.
