Iggy Pop – “Asshole Rules the Navy” (Feat. A Hawk And A Hacksaw)

By Tom Breihan / January 22, 2013

The forthcoming nautical-song compilation Son of Rogue’s Gallery: Pirate Ballads, Sea Songs & Chanteys has a whole lot of big names attached; we’ve already heard Tom Waits and Keith Richards team up to take on the traditional folk song “Shenandoah.” But in its two discs, the comp only has one track as delightfully titled as “Asshole Rules The Navy.” On that song, an actual old seafaring tune, Iggy Pop teams up with Albuquerque gypsy-folk duo a Hawk And A Hacksaw and cusses a bunch. I would’ve thought it hilarious when I was 10. Listen below.

Son Of Rogue’s Gallery is out 2/19 on Anti-.
