Riff of the Day – 09/12/15 Iggy Pop – Go for the Throat

Iggy Pop – Go for the Throat (from the album Beat ‘Em Up, Virgin 2001) This album is an absolute gem. Besides The Stooges albums, this is my favorite Iggy Pop work. The man sounds pissed off, and it resulted in a raw, and real record. Go for the Throat is a chugging punk rock anthem, complete with Iggy proclaiming “I`m fucked up, man I`m so fucked up…”. I love this song, so I had the Latin phrase “Vado Pro Iugulum” tattooed on my arm. It translates to the song`s title, Go for the Throat. If you don`t like Iggy Pop, you`re a jerk.
