* BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor: For many years, fans of The Stooges wished that Iggy would remix ''Raw Power'', which suffered from a rushed, thin mix by Music/DavidBowie. In 1997, he finally did, but the result was so [[LoudnessWar painfully loud]] that the rest of the band and even many fans preferred the earlier version.

Nonetheless, this is an example of a ZigZaggedTrope, since Iggy's remix (alongside Bowie's) was later remastered for a 2012 vinyl edition that did not have the LoudnessWar issues of the 1997 version.

'''The Stooges''' were a proto-punk band from [[StrawmanU Ann Arbor]], Michigan, active between 1967-1974 and from 2003 onwards, who along with their fellow Michiganders Music/{{MC5}} proved to be [[TropeMakers enormously influential on the development of]] PunkRock.

The Stooges, much like their fellow protopunkers the Music/{{MC5}}, only released three albums during their initial career. Their first two albums were ''Music/TheStoogesAlbum'' and ''Music/FunHouse''. These didn't sell well but attracted a cult audience and were later VindicatedByHistory, recognised as classic protopunk albums. The group temporarily collapsed in 1971 after being dropped from their record label and suffering from severe heroin abuse, but were quickly rallied by Music/DavidBowie, [[NetworkToTheRescue who got them a new contract and produced their final album]] ''Music/RawPower''. Bowie's mix was frequently the source of controversy as he was brought in to salvage the album after a botched, amateurish mix by Iggy. The band barely lasted another year before breaking up for good. Iggy went on to a solo career and remained friends with Bowie ever since.

The Stooges were a proto-punk band from [[StrawmanU Ann Arbor]], Michigan, active between 1967-1974, who along with their fellow Michiganders Music/{{MC5}} proved to be [[TropeMakers enormously influential on the development of]] PunkRock. The band's lineup was as follows: * Music/IggyPop - vocals (1967-1974) * Ron Asheton - guitar (1967-1971), bass (1971-1974) * James Williamson - guitar (1971-1974) * Dave Alexander - bass (1967-1970) * Scott Asheton - drums (1967-1974) * Scott Thurston - keyboards (1973-1974) The band's SignatureStyle was aggressive, incredibly simple proto-punk based around Ron Asheton and later James Williamson's heavy, hypnotic riffs, Scott Asheton's tribal rhythms and Music/IggyPop's awesomeness. One of the original CrazyAwesome frontmen of rock, Pop was famous for his extreme behaviour during live concerts, which included rolling around in broken glass, smearing himself with peanut butter, performing [[WalkingShirtlessScene without a shirt]], [[TropeMakers inventing crowd-surfing]] and baiting and verbally abusing the audience.

Iggy was personally responsible for the controversial- to say the least- 1997 remaster of ''Music/RawPower'', which is always cited as the worst possible example of the LoudnessWar. He also reunited the band in 2003, thankfully stayed away from the remasters of their other two albums and recorded a new Stooges album, ''The Weirdness''. Fan reaction has largely been... mixed, with frequent invoking of FanonDiscontinuity. The Stooges released a new album in 2013, ''Ready to Die'', which was received much better than their previous effort. Since Scott Asheton died in 2014, Iggy Pop is the only remaining founding member of the band, which now faces an uncertain future.
