* 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.

** The original Stooges broke up in 1971, only to reunite as Iggy And The Stooges a year later with James Williamson on guitar and Ron Asheton bumped to bass for the recording of ''Raw Power''.

** After Ron Asheton's death in 2009, The Stooges took a hiatus, before changing their name to Iggy And The Stooges a few months later, with James Williamson back on guitar.

* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* SingerNamedrop: Inverted on "No Fun", where Iggy Pop, getting worked up, yells "C'mon Ronnie, tell 'em how I feel!" to guitarist Ron Asheton, prefacing his extended solo that makes up the song's final minutes.

* 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.

* GenreShift: "We Will Fall" is a 10-minute creepy drone-based song with screeching violas by the album's [[RecordProducer producer]] [[Music/JohnCale]].
