"Well alright..." -- the first song on the first Stooges album ranks among the most pertinent statements of intent in recorded history. A barreling riff does nothing more than is absolutely necessary, a guitar solo sends shards of shattered distortion bleeding across the last half of the song, and Iggy Pop's lyrics are a manifesto of disaffected post-teen frustration.
