As one of punk music’s key progenitors, Iggy Pop isn’t the type of frontman who cajoles the audience with cheer-baiting platitudes like, "[Insert city name], are you ready to rock?!” Even so, it’s a bit startling when everything a rock legend says between songs is a shot fired at the audience or himself.
5. Introducing the band: "It’s f--kin’ nice to meet you. We are the Stooges and we come from hell."

1. Giving his goodbyes to the crowd: "I could say, 'Happy trails.' I could also say, 'It’s time to scrape the sh-t off of my heels.' I could also say, 'F--k off.'"
Never change, Iggy.
