The Stooges first existed in the late 19 and early 19. They sold very few records in their original incarnation and often performed to indifferent or hostile audiences. (And, as has been said about The Velvet Underground, the handful of people who did actually buy the Stooges' early records at the time, ended up forming bands of their own.) Singer Iggy Pop and his wild onstage antics were often the focus of attention.

Nevertheless, the Stooges are often regarded as hugely influential both on then-nascent and later, on (see ).

The Stooges drew their sound from a variety of influences: James Brown, Bitches Brew, Ravi Shankar, Bob Dylan, Booker T and the MGs, The Troggs, and The Rolling Stones.
