I Love The Smell of Punk In The Morning- “I Wanna Be Your Dog”- The Stooges.

The term punk rock wasn’t being used in 1969 when The Stooges self-titled debut album came out- but the Ann Arbor, Michigan band has to be considered with their raw style and the antics of their front man James Newell Osterberg Jr- as among the fathers of punk. The Stooges- aka Iggy and The Stooges only put out three albums back in the day- 1960- The Stooges, 1970 Fun House and 1973- Raw Power. Rolling Stone ranked “I Wanna Be Your Dog” at #438 on their 500 Greatest Songs Ever list. It has also been featured in a number of movies. The song and the band would have a big influence on the punk music to come in the mid 70’s.

So messed up, I want you here
In my room, I want you here
Now we’re gonna be face-to-face
And I’ll lay right down in my favorite place
And now I want to be your dog
Now I want to be your dog
Now I want to be your dog
Well, come on
Now I’m ready to close my eyes
And now I’m ready to close my mind
And now I’m ready to feel your hand
And lose my heart on the burning sands
And now I want to be your dog
And now I wanna be your dog
Now I want to be your dog
Well, come on
