This is a transcript of "Iggy Pop History Lesson" - For those of you who were wondering why a 63 year old half-naked man was singing AT Jennifer Lopez on American Idol, he was not a homeless man that ran on stage. His name is Iggy Pop and here’s some history on him. Iggy is the frontman of the band The Stooges, one of the most influential punk bands of all-time. Kids, punk music is like the music you listen to now, except with balls. He’s known for his high-energy shows and was the first person to ever stage dive. Finally Iggy, Pop did a ton of drugs. Some speculate he did just enough in order to live forever, AKA the Keith Richards effect. I’m working on it.One man in the history of punk rock exuded crazed energy, artistic intensity, and general "I don't give a damn" feelings in every musical thing he did. That man was Iggy Pop.
