Gimme Danger Trailer


As the trailer begins, you hear Jim Jarmusch announce that he's "in an undisclosed location interrogating Jim Osterberg (Iggy Pop) about The Stooges, the greatest rock 'n' roll band ever. 'Interrogating' is the perfect choice of words for Jarmusch to choose as nothing less would do justice to the severe impact The Stooges had on the rock scene. 

Raucous, loud, dangerous and unafraid to cross the boundaries, not only did Iggy Pop and the rest of the band embody rock, they also embraced an entirely new ethos that was being formed - in part by them - called punk.

Iggy Pop originally formed The Stooges as a blues band, but didn't want to stick to the traditional confines of the genre, he wanted to take the style in a whole new direction, so he and three of his friends began writing songs together. The eight tracks they'd originally compile included I Wanna Be Your Dog and the ten minute+ track We Will Fall.
