Album artwork for Fun House by The Stooges

The debut album from 1969 was immense, but nothing could quite prepare you for the brutal masterpiece that is Funhouse. It is something that is neither pretty nor wholesome, and it succeeds almost entirely on the powerful chemistry at work.

Iggy screams, shouts, yelps, and grunts over a barrage of simplistic music with simplistic lyrics and, at times, no music at all ("La Blues"). Other great tunes present here are "Down On The Street", the excellent opener, "1970", a perfect proto-punk anthem, and the title track, simply one of the finest, rawest, most visceral songs ever recorded.

This is one of the best albums of all time. if you have any blood in your veins, buy a copy and you won't be disappointed.
