The Original Album
Although when originally released, Fun House was not a big seller for either the band or Elektra Records, the album ended up being a favorite of critics like Lester Bangs and magazines like Creem. The album's reputation (as well as that of its eponymous predecessor and its 1973 follow up Raw Power) grew with the advent of punk, as the likes of the Ramones, the Sex Pistols and The Clash mentioned The Stooges in general, and Fun House in particular, as a major influence. Henry Rollins devoted most of a Spin magazine column to the album in 1985, furthering the reputation of the album, which had been quietly put back in print not long afterward and has stayed there ever since, especially with the advent of the original compact disc reissue of the album in 1988.
