In a recent interview with Classic Rock Magazine, Iggy Pop confessed that he doesn’t like “punk”. Says the fan-dubbed Godfather of Punk:
“We hadn’t sold out one of the shows, so the promoter wanted me to go on the radio. So I said: ‘Alright, I’ll do an interview.’ Well, then that wasn’t enough. They wanted me to talk about five punk songs. And I told them: ‘I don’t like punk.’”
Later in the interview, Iggy shot down the rumor that he threatened to expose his penis during a gig at the 2013 SXSW conference.
“I wasn’t threatening them… I mean, I never really have displayed my penis. That’s sort of… that’s an urban myth. Once in a while it slips out here and there, or my pants fall down a lot.”
Weirdness aside, Iggy’s pants really do fall down. A lot. Like this time. And this time. And this time. And who could forget this time? Although, just like the photo at the top of this post, I’m sure Iggy was just looking for his keys, and not attempting to threaten anyone with his penis. And I always believe everything Iggy “Cock in my Pocket“, Pop says.
