“Louie Louie” – Iggy and the Stooges

The most notorious live album of all-time “Metallic K.O.” was recorded 40 years years ago today.

By this point, Iggy and the Stooges had worn out all of their good will and were drowning in a sea of heroin, booze, and “not playing nicely with others.” They were openly hostile with audiences and baiting them to beat the crap out of them …which often happened. Here’s the most infamous track from that legendary album. And, most importantly, Iggy is still alive to celebrate this milestone.
