Raw Power is the third studio album by American rock band The Stooges (credited as Iggy and the Stooges). It was released on February 7, 1973, by Columbia Records. Musically, the album departed from the "groove-ridden, feel-based songs" of the band's first two records in favor of more anthemic hard rock while featuring guitar and songwriting contributions by James Williamson.

Though not initially commercially successful, Raw Power gained a cult following in the years following its release and, like its predecessor (1970's Fun House), is generally considered an influential forerunner of punk rock.
