The Stooges discography
The Stooges performing in Milan, Italy on September 2, 2006
The discography of The Stooges, a Detroit, Michigan based rock band founded by "The Godfather of Punk Music" Iggy Pop as singer, Ron Asheton as guitarist, Dave Alexander as bass-guitarist and Scott Asheton as drummer, currently consists of five studio albums, twenty-four singles, four live albums, and three box sets.
The Stooges debut album The Stooges was released on August 5, 1969 in the United States and one month later in the United Kingdom. The album wasn't a huge commercial success — it did chart in the Billboard 200 charts on 106. One year later, on August 1970, the band released the album Fun House, which didn't chart either in the Billboard 200, or in the UK Album Chart and any other international music album chart. In 1973 the Stooges released the album Raw Power. It charted in the Billboard 200 at 182, in the United Kingdom at least at 44 and is the best charted The Stooges album in the United Kingdom to date. After the release of their third album the Stooges announced the break-up of the band, who were also known at the time as Iggy Pop & The Stooges. The Stooges reunited thirty-four years after their official dissolution and released The Weirdness. Although the album was the best-charted album in the United States by peaking at number 130, its overall commercial charting is similar to that of the Stooges' first three albums.
Despite being a commercial failure (none of their albums has received a certification), the Stooges are described by critics as one of the key bands of punk music and their genre is described as "protopunk", an early form of punk rock. Many musicians, especially punk music bands, as well as artists like Kurt Cobain, cited the Stooges as a huge influence.
