Iggy Pop will kick your ass (NSFW)

Tuesday, June 12, 2012 - 01:40 PM

Henry Rollins, the former frontman of the hardcore punk band Black Flag, is an intimidating physical performer.  He's also a really smart guy, an author, a columnist, and - as we learned last time he was on Soundcheck - an avid fan of snakes.  Henry Rollins will kick your ass. 

Unless you are Iggy Pop.

The ageless godfather of punk, famed for spitting out lyrics while crawling over broken glass, is extreme enough a performer that even Henry Rollins, recorded on one of his spoken word tours, acknowledges that there is simply no way to match him.  This video, posted to Youtube last month, is 20 minutes long and full of words you will not want your kids or co-workers to hear.  It has, however, an incredibly precise impersonation of Iggy Pop's speaking voice by Henry Rollins, among many other moments of hilarity.  Enjoy.
