* 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.

Added DiffLines:
** "L.A. Blues" is a veritable goldmine.

* BrokenBase: In 1997, Iggy remixed ''Music/RawPower'' and made it '''A LOT LOUDER AND A LOT 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.

* PainfulRhyme: ''Well it's 1969 okay/All across the USA'' ** "Last year I was 21/I didn't have a lot of fun/Now I'm going to be 22/I say oh, my, and a boo-hoo."

The covering up was ultimately pretty beneficial to the original artist, which may have been the point: Iggy Pop was nearing bankruptcy and struggling with addiction at the time, and receiving substantial royalties for the Bowie version helped him out financially.

* EpicRiff: Several, but "I Wanna Be Your Dog" probably takes the cake. * EvenBetterSequel: ''Fun House'' is a notable aversion to the SophomoreSlump, being considered much better than their debut. If ''Raw Power'' isn't a Stooges fan's favorite album, it's usually this one.

* 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.

* HilariousInHindsight: During his junior high school days, Iggy was voted "Most likely to succeed" by his classmates. Well, he and the Stooges did play a key role in kickstarting [[Music/PunkRock an entire music genre]].
