Day 1-Favourite song

Okay so i really don't have a favourite song. Not even a favourite band. I love music too much to seperate people like that so here's a song that's in my head and is, and always will be, one of the hundreds of favourites.
It was 1969. The country had been swept and romanticised by the beatles for almost a decade and the swooning teenagers were getting caught up in the midst of rock and roll. A lot happened musically in 1969. Woodstock took place with acts such as Richie Havens and Jimi hendrix and the youth movement was thriving and the music as well. The love and peace of Woodstock had changed the face of America and soon to come was the Isle Of Wight festival in which The Doors would play, (having turned down a place at Woodstock). The country; the world, was on the brink of a musical explosion.
Meanwhile, in a studio in London, Iggy and the Stooges were working on their self titled album 'The Stooges' in an Elektra recording studio. Little did the world know that the musical explosion was all down to this one man. The musical explosion was: Punk. Or so the media called it once it splashed suddenly onto the pages of magazine and newspapers and flyers on the underground music scene. Iggy was a god and 'I wanna be your dog' was a phenomenal hit and swept the nation introducing it to the crotch thrusting, hard hitting, animalistic wildness of this new musical movement.
