Riff: Iggy and The Stooges – “Job”

Apr 30, 2013

I’m just a guy with a rock-star attitude, /I’ve got no belief and I got no gratitude

from Job lyrics by Iggy and The Stooges

This track plays like The Stooges are the “shittily-paying-job” Iggy’s bitching about, with verses and choruses all running together in a homogenized, monodynamic power-chord chug-fest. When you’re a full-time punk rocker in your worse-for-the-wear 60’s, maybe you tend to get “sick of” it; [LISTEN].
