Iggy / Funboy

A cross between Iggy Pop and a character named FunBoy from "The Crow" that was loosely based on Pop's persona (Pop was supposedly cast in the role, but due to his touring commitments the part went to Michael Massee eventually).

The lyrics are off Pop's 1996 album "Naughty Little Doggie", the track "I Wanna Live". The background is an homage to Detroit - the city in which the dark and violent movie takes place and which spawned garage proto-punk bands such as Iggy's own Stooges.
