* BrokenBase: In 1997, Iggy remixed ''Music/RawPower'' and made it '''A LOT LOUDER AND HEAVIER''' (technically speaking, it is the loudest album '''''EVER''''') in response to fans complaints that [[Music/DavidBowie David Bowie's]] rushed original mix was too thin. A lot of people came crawling back to the Bowie mix. On the other hand, some fans thought the mix, even as punishing as it was, was more faithful to Iggy's original vision.

* RetroactiveRecognition: Dead Boys vocalist Stiv Bators claimed that he was the one who supplied the peanut Iggy smeared himself with at the 1970 Cincinatti Pop Festival.
* VindicatedByHistory: Their albums flopped on release and they were generally hated by critics, but all three of the band's original albums were in ''Rolling Stone's'' list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.

* MagnumOpus: Generally considered to be ''Music/RawPower'', although ''Music/FunHouse'' has its share of people who will vouch for it too. The self-titled is generally considered to be an excellent album, but a notch below those two.

** Also, in reality, the 1997 ''Raw Power'' isn't quite the loudest album ever; Music/TheAxisOfPerdition's full-length début is 0.1 dB louder than it, mostly because the band didn't know what they were doing when mastering it. Additionally, Music/{{Merzbow}}'s ''Venerology'' is probably also louder; it has an RMS value of '''''0.00 dB''''' on "I Lead You Towards Glorious Times", which may be the loudest song ever pressed to CD, and the other tracks aren't far behind (for comparison, the average RMS value on the ''Raw Power'' remix is around -2.4 dB, with the worst offender being "Your Pretty Face Is Going to Hell" at -0.94 dB). Some of Merzbow's other releases from around the same time (particularly ''Pulse Demon'') weren't much quieter.

** The base is much less broken over the remaster of Iggy's remix, available on a 2012 vinyl release. This eliminates the LoudnessWar tendencies of the original remix and probably comes the closest to sounding how the album was intended to sound all along. Perhaps a case of KeepCirculatingTheTapes.

** "L.A. Blues" is a veritable goldmine.
