Rocket From the Tombs - Raw Power

As constant readers know, this blog is fascinated with cover versions.  This is a rare treat.  A song by the Stooges, covered by Rocket from the Tombs.  It's a jaw-dropper, too.

Incidentally, if you want to look for the original, the album version by the Stooges is total crap.  The only good Stooges version is available, or was, only on a four song, ten inch EP called, "Rough Power."  Those are some frighteningly aggressive recordings, not for the feint of heart, and "Raw Power" is one of the best.  They are the mixes from the originally submitted LP that was rejected by the record label.  Find it if you can, buy it if you can, it's one of the best rock records of all time.  If you do find it, please post it to the 'Tube.  It's not up there yet.
