Happy birthday to The Stooges Fun House!

July 9th, 2020

 

The Stooges sophomore album, Fun House, celebrated it's 50th anniversary this week. When it was initially released, the album didn't do much commercially, but was considered a critical success. 50 years on, the album has become a blueprint for punk, indie, and alternative rock. It's difficult to imagine a world in which it didn't exist. Kudos to Iggy Pop, Ron and Scott Ashton, and Dave Alexander. We salute you! Let's check out 3 classic tracks.

 

 

Down on the Street. My favorite Stooges track!

 

TV Eye. Listen to Iggy's yell at the beginning. It always makes me want to smash everything in my room.

 

1970. I feel alright!
