Saturday Night Random Live Thread

Richard Mackson-US PRESSWIRE

This is one of our nightly live threads. This means that you are welcome to discuss any subject that you wish but in keeping with the rules of the site we ask that you refrain from the discussion of politics and religion. Please remember that this thread takes place on the front page of the site, is not a CKC and as such try to keep things as near to PG as possible. Keep this in mind with the posting of pics as well and we ask that you keep them to a maximum of 5 per person and do not post Gifs. This keeps the thread load time from slowing down for those on slower connections.

This is the thirteenth post in a series of top 100 "debut" albums of all time. AKA the best first album of some of the best artist of all time. Like previously stated I will be skipping over a few selections along the way to save us from the obvious pain of listening to some crap. Tonight I will be skipping number 67, 50 cent's 2003 debut "Get Rich Or Die Tryin".

Tonight's feature at number 66 is the 1969 debut, self titled album from The Stooges. For those of you that appreciate punk rock, post punk or any of its many incarnations over the years, this is widely accepted as the album that began the genre. I have over the years seen many a great cover song's from this album.

I know that this style will not appeal to all of you but much of what came in the 70's, 80's and 90's as far as heavier rock, alternative and of course all punk owes much to this band and their sound. Hopefully that's something you can appreciate. Just a short list of some of those directly influenced by the Stooges and Iggy Pop-Black Flag, David Bowie, Joan Jett, Patti Smith, Ramones, The Sex Pistols, Dead Kennedys, Foo Fighters, Janes Addiction, Meat Puppets, Melvins, Motorhead, Mudhoney, Nirvana, The Pretenders, Queens of the Stone Age, Soundgarden, Television, The Clash, Gun's and Roses, Jet, Mother Love Bone, Rage Against the Machine, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Slayer, Sonic Youth, The White Stripes, Alice Cooper, Black Rebel Motorcycle Club, Kiss, Siouxsie and the Banshees, Alejendro Escovedo and many, many more....
