The Stooges' strong and aggressive rock and roll style, which originated in Ann Arbor, Michigan in the midst of a countercultural revolution, blasted a crater in the late 1960s musical landscape. The band thundered at the crowd with a mix of rock, blues, R&B and free jazz, planting the seeds of what was to be called punk and alternative rock in the decades that followed.
Jim Jarmusch's film Gimme Danger tells the story of The Stooges, one of the greatest rock bands of all time. Gimme Danger presents the context The Stooges originated in, musically, culturally, politically and historically, and tells about their adventures and mishaps, about what inspired them, about the reasons for the financial challenges they had in the beginning, and about the lasting legacy they left behind.
