Emerging from Ann Arbor amidst a countercultural revolution, The Stooges’ powerful and aggressive style of rock-n-roll blew a crater in the musical landscape of the late 1960s. Assaulting audiences with a blend of rock, blues, R&B and free jazz, the band planted the seeds for what would be called punk and alternative rock in the decades that followed.
Gimme Danger chronicles the story of The Stooges, one of the greatest rock-n-roll bands of all time, presenting the context of their emergence musically, culturally, politically and historically. The movie relates the band’s adventures and misadventures while charting their inspirations and the reasons behind their initial commercial challenges, as well as The Stooges’ long-lasting legacy.
