There are lots of different opinions out there on who the greatest rock band of all time is, but the most correct is the one shared by director Jim Jarmusch: The Stooges. And that very director has made a documentary about the band called Gimme Danger, a trailer for which recently streetwalked its way to the internet.
The legend of The Stooges, including frontman of frontmen Iggy Pop’s outrageous antics onstage and off, is already well known, so a documentary on the subject has its work cut out for it in finding new ground to explore. That makes Jarmusch, who is known more for his narrative feature films, a good choice to create the latest and hopefully best documentary about the band.
Gimme Danger doesn’t come out until October 28th, but you can watch the official trailer below. And if you’re not familiar with The Stooges, I suppose there are worse places to start than the band’s official site right here.
Here’s the trailer, little stranger:
