* WordSalad: When the main part of a song is finished, the band sometimes starts jamming on the song structure. While [[TheLancer James Williamson]] delivers his Music/JimiHendrix [[XmeetsY meets]] Music/LouReed" solos, Music/IggyPop [[CarefulWithThatAxe screams like crazy]] with completely random Scat lyrics ''for minutes''.

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.

** The original line-up then reunited as The Stooges in 2003 (minus the late Dave Alexander, who at Ron Asheton's insistence was replaced by [[Music/TheMinutemen Mike Watt]]).

* RatedMForManly: The band is sometimes sorted into the nebulous genre of ''Cock Rock''.

* StageNames: Iggy Pop is actually named James Newell Osterberg, and still goes by "Jim" in private. The "Iggy" part came from the fact that he used to drum for a band called The Iguanas while in high school.

Also, on the self-titled album, he was credited as "Iggy Stooge", but this was apparently a bit of ExecutiveMeddling he didn't approve of.

* EpicRocking: "We Will Fall", "Dirt", "Fun House", "Open Up and Bleed".

to:

* EpicRocking: "We Will Fall", "Dirt", "Fun House", "Open Up and Bleed". Additionally, the complete sessions of ''Music/FunHouse'' reveal that "L.A. Blues" evolved from a jam that could go as long as seventeen and a half minutes.



* UpToEleven: The closer of ''Music/FunHouse'', ''L.A. Blues''. The influence from free jazz is consistently raised during the album, but ''L.A. Blues'' simply resolves all structure in favour of a chaotic sound mass.

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.

* SurprisinglyGentleSong: Yes, yes, they're a mega-awesome balls-out proto-punk band with a charismatic HotBlooded front-man. They also recorded "Ann", "We Will Fall", "I Need Somebody" and "Gimme Danger".
* ThreeChordsAndTheTruth: The music is down to its bare essentials, with simple riffs.

* ThreeChordsAndTheTruth: The music is down to its bare essentials, with simple riffs. However, compared to the works of later punk bands, this may be considered a DownplayedTrope, as ''Music/FunHouse'' has prominent saxophone and fairly complicated bass parts (courtesy of Steve Mackay and Dave Alexander, respectively), and James Williamson's playing on ''Music/RawPower'' is quite technically proficient. UnbuiltTrope may apply here to an extent.

'''The Stooges''' were a ProtoPunk band from [[StrawmanU Ann Arbor]],UsefulNotes/{{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.
