By 1972 The Stooges and Iggy Pop were in shambles. As a long time fan, David Bowie helped out. It would result in the ultimate template for punk: Iggy And The Stooges – Raw Power!

40 years ago Iggy Pop released the adrenaline boost known as Lust For Life as a single. It still is a monumental song that introduced punk to the Dutch kids.
