KO feature

One of rock’s most harrowing and authentically violent recorded documents was captured live 40 years ago today when Iggy and the Stooges unknowingly committed their last will and testament to tape (as an active '70s band, anyway) by performing the show that would go down in infamy as ‘Metallic K.O.’
