Iggy and the Stooges - Gimme Danger
Not new at all. In fact, recorded in 1973, which after giving it a careful listen just blows our mind. Way, way, way ahead of it's time, the entire album from which this song hails, aptly titled Raw Power, sounds just a fresh today as it did in 1973, and laid a lot of ground work for the punk bands that followed years later. Having come out prior to MTV, the album and its songs never got the video treatment. However, a small digital studio titled Wildlife were invited to the inaugural Videophonic Panel at the Promax/BDA in 2012, and the challenge was to give a pre-MTV era song the video it deserves. The pill popping black light psychedelia above suits it nicely.
