Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 488/500!!

180g Vinyl Edition Cut From Original Analog Masters!

Long before the raw power of punk icon Iggy Pop became legend, his first incarnation as Iggy Stooge of proto-punk trailblazers The Stooges roared into being. The essence of punk years before the genre existed, The Stooges' furious music was a howling, visceral, fuzztone-drenched, and unprecedented vortex of sound, as evidenced on their revolutionary self-titled, John Cale-produced 1969 debut album.

"Of the million-plus bands inspired by The Stooges later, the ones who were most successful realized that simplicity, volume, repetition and primitivism could be a shortcut to transcendence, but that it takes brains to get it just right. 'No Fun' is so perfect it's breathtaking." - The Rolling Stone Album Guide

"Ahead of their time and entirely out of their time, all at once." - All Music Guide

"Fueled by "a little marijuana and a lotta alienation," Michigan's Stooges gave the lie to hippie idealism, playing with a savagery that unsettled even the most blase clubgoers. The band was signed to Elektra, despite label head Jac Holzman's misgivings that "the Stooges could barely play their instruments. How were we going to get this on record?" Ex-Velvet Underground member John Cale produced a primitive debut wherein, amid Ron Asheton's wah-wah blurts, Iggy Stooge (ne James Osterberg) snarled seminal punk classics such as "I Wanna Be Your Dog," "No Fun" and "1969." The record stiffed, but it undeniably gave birth to punk rock." - www.rollingstone.com

"These groundbreaking Detroit punks tapped into the brutal side of the blues for this primitive classic. They also offer a one-note piano tribute to the Kinks' "You Really Got Me." Over the ultimate bone-crunching three-chord guitar riff, Iggy Pop screams about the agony of teenage hormones the way only Iggy Pop can." - Rolling Stone
