The year ends with an Iggy Pop song about the pandemic. “I wanted to do something direct, not too emotional or profound”
Entitled ‘Dirty Little Virus’, the theme contains verses such as “Grandfather’s dead / Got Trump instead”.
The “godfather of punk” also shared a video where he explains the genesis of this theme: “I wanted to write a direct letter, nothing too emotional or deep, more like journalism”, he says.
“If there was a ‘Man of the Year’, it would be the virus. So I wrote the lyrics about it”. See Iggy Pop’s explanations and listen to ‘Dirty Little Virus’:
