Fine I'll listen to it, but if this isn't as good as Dishwalla, we're in a fight.

Wait, this isn't called Raw Power. And where do I get the Bowie one?

Hence "song". And both versions are on Spotify with the Iggy mix just being called "Raw Power" and the Bowie mix being called "Raw Power (Legacy Edition)".

Just got around to listening to both. I love the garage sound, but at this point it just sounds like the music they put in a scene about high school kids driving to a concert. Reminded me a bit of:

“Cherry Bomb” Played In Lieu Of Actual Female Character Development

But for like, for the 4 metal kids in the disco era.

That said, I'm not sure what Bowie added other than making it slightly more palatable to cowards. It felt like the roughness of it was reduced. Am I missing something?

Bagging on both Raw Power and The Runaways is self own squared.

And the Bowie version was the original.

The Iggy mix is rawer, more direct, snappier and louder. The Bowie version, as you said, is basically the same music with the balls cut off.

Yeah, absolutely. But that punky 70's sound has just been adopted by pharma commercials and children's shows at this point. Some of the tracks are better than others in sounding like real toons, but too much has been co-opted.

re: Bowie's being the original. Major improvement with the Iggy mix.

The only people who like the Bowie mix better are pussies and people who grew up with it.
