Stripped is The Rolling Stones album released in 1995 during the Voodoo Lounge Tour. The album was a mixture of live recordings from smaller venues and studio recordings – made with no overdubs – of songs mostly from their previous catalogue. The exceptions were Bob Dylan's "Like a Rolling Stone" and Willie Dixon's "Little Baby", neither of which the band released versions of before.

The two in-studio sessions were recorded from 3–5 March 1995 in Tokyo, Japan and 23–26 July in LisbonPortugal, while the recordings in smaller venues featuring live audiences are from performances in London, Paris and Amsterdam.

Some CD versions of Stripped included an enhanced portion for viewing on a computer, including videos of rehearsals of "Tumbling Dice" and "Shattered" and an alternate performance of "Like a Rolling Stone", and video interviews with Mick JaggerKeith RichardsCharlie Watts, and Ronnie Wood.

Released in November 1995 as their second album with Virgin RecordsStripped (a play on the title of Unplugged) was well-received with its relaxed and natural feel and reached No. 9 in both the UK and US, going platinum the latter territory. The lead single, a cover of Dylan's "Like a Rolling Stone", reached No. 12 in the UK, becoming a rock radio hit in the US, and was followed up by "Wild Horses" in early 1996.

The album was digitally remastered and re-issued in 2009.
