Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 488/500!
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
"These groundbreaking Detroit punks tapped into the brutal side of the blues for this primitive classic." - Rolling Stone
