The Stooges are an American rock band that was first active from about 1967 to 1974, and then reformed in 2003.

The Stooges–like their contemporaries The Velvet Underground–sold rather few records in their original existence and often performed for indifferent or hostile audiences. And again as has been said about The Velvet Underground, the rather small numbers of people who first bought The Stooges' records were often inspired to form bands of their own.

Nevertheless, The Stooges are often regarded as hugely influential both on the then–nascent heavy metal music and on later punk rock (see protopunk). Singer Iggy Pop and his wild onstage antics were often the focus of attention.

In 2006, frontman Iggy Pop announced that the band had regrouped to record a new album.
