Song of the Day 5/27/09

Every day, our top 666 songs of alltime countdown gets one step closer to #1. Wednesday’s song is #427:

The Stooges – Louie Louie

At the end of Joy Division’s cover of Sister Ray, you can hear Ian Curtis saying, “You should hear us do Louie Louie.” No doubt this is what he was referring to, Iggy’s absolutely filthy, completely politically incorrect version from the 1976 live Metallic KO album. Because there are so many versions out there, including an awful studio one from the American Caesar cd, you’ll have to do some sifting. The link above is a torrent for all of Metallic KO.
