The first single off of the Stooges’ self-titled debut is probably the most influential punk/proto-punk song of all time. There was nothing like it at the time, and it doesn’t seem like the world was ready for it either considering the terrible reviews it got. My personal favourite quote, and probably the highest praise this album got at the time is that this record is “stupid-rock at its best.” It’s not for everyone, but the impact is undeniable and for that reason it is today’s SOTD.

I’ve decided to include links to the songs from here on, so check it out here
