Out Now: GIMME DANGER: MUSIC FROM THE MOTION PICTURE

When it comes to The Stooges’ place in rock history, there’s more or less a consensus among rock critics – or as close to a consensus as you’re ever going to get with rock critics, anyway – that they’re among the greatest rock bands of all time.

As such, if a director was going to put together a documentary – or “rockumentary,” if you will – about the life and times of The Stooges, one would hope that it would prove to be as memorable and historic as the band itself. Given that Jim Jarmusch’s Gimme Danger currently sits with a 94% rating on RottenTomatoes.com, it would seem that the film has delivered exactly what Stooges fans wanted, and you may rest assured that the soundtrack succeeds equally well.

GIMME DANGER: MUSIC FROM THE MOTION PICTURE is now available on both CD and LP, and while the track listings vary slightly between the two, the quality of the music contained within both is still solid from start to finish. With songs selected by Jarmusch and Iggy Pop himself, the soundtrack focuses on tracks from The Stooges’ first three studio albums, along with a few songs by Iggy’s pre-Stooges bands The Iguanas (“Again and Again”) and Prime Movers Blues Band (“I’m a Man”) as well as the MC5’s classic “Ramblin’ Rose.” It’s a great compilation, and if you’ve never owned a Stooges album, it’s also the perfect gateway drug into their catalog.

Here’s the full track listing for the CD/ Digital release as well as the LP release, so you’ll know what’s on what:
