One of rock’s most harrowing and authentically violent recorded documents was captured live 40 years ago today when Iggy and the Stooges unknowingly committed their last will and testament to tape (as an active '70s band, anyway) by performing the show that would go down in infamy as ‘Metallic K.O.’

25 Years Ago: Roy Orbison Releases ‘Mystery Girl’

Roy Orbison spent much of the '70s and '80s in commercial exile. With the exception of his 1980 duet with Emmylou Harris, 'That Lovin' You Feelin' Again,' he hadn't had a Top 40 hit on the pop or country charts since the '60s. But to Orbison's credit, he never chased trends.

25 Years Ago: Bob Dylan and the Grateful Dead Release ‘Dylan & the Dead’

Bob Dylan wasn't exactly at the peak of his career when he released 'Dylan & the Dead,' a collaborative live album with the Grateful Dead, on Feb. 6, 1989. In fact, he was pretty close to the bottom of his popularity, influence and creativity. And another live album -- his third in 10 years -- certainly didn't help matters.
