Boy George and British Electric Foundation Cover the Stooges, But Why?

Sometimes songs are written that are so perfect the first time, they become instant classics, indelibly marking the face of music forever and staying in the wider consciousness for all time. One of these songs is “I Wanna Be Your Dog” by Iggy Pop and the Stooges. Dark, filthy, lithe, sexual, timeless — this thing is actual goddamn genius. So people who decide they're good enough to cover it are — how do we put this politely? — batshit crazy. This song is never going to get any better, so leave it the fuck alone already.
