A documentary on English rock band 'Rolling Stones', which was banned because of its controversial content, has been leaked online.

The documentary, Cocksucker Blues, was shot during the band's 1972 tour in US, but they had placed a ban on the content of the documentary because it included their backstage footage which they decided their fans shouldn't see, reported Contactmusic.

The film itself is under a court order which forbids it from being shown unless the director, photographer Robert Frank, is physically present. But the documentary made its way to's blog last Wednesday. The documentary chronicles the behind-the-stage activities of the bands members, including backstage parties, drug use, roadie antics, and the Stones with their defenses down.

The name of the film is taken from a single written by the band's member Mick Jagger, who is seen snorting cocaine in the film. Another member, guitarist Keith Richards had once claimed about the film, "If anyone in America saw it, we'd never be let in the country again."
