    Not sure how long this thread will get, guess that’s the point! Any Mudhoney fans here? The band, not the movie :lol:.

    Back when I first heard them in the 90’s I couldn’t tolerate Arm’s voice, but over the years they’ve become a favorite of mine.

    Big fan here. Hear their influence in the music of so many bands that were “bigger “.

    Check out Rehab Doll by Green River. Should have been way bigger.

    Superfuzz/Big Muff is in the top 2 of grunge albums. The other one is Tad's 8-Way Santa.

    I remember my friends were really into them in the 90s. We lived in LA at the time and went to see them. I bet they named themselves after the Russ Martin film.

    Tad! Love Tad. I like a lot the bands that got big, but Tad and Mudhoney really deserve more recognition.

    One of the last great American rock and roll bands.

    MH is THE quintessential grunge band. They were, at one time, supposed to be the biggest band to come out of Seattle. Soundgarden, AIC, & Nirvana beat them to the punch. Now, only a few remember how great they were. :(

    YES!!!!

    I like to annoy Nirvana fanboys by telling them Nirvana might have been the fourth best band in Seattle in the early '90s- the top 3 being Mudhoney, Tad, and The Young Fresh Fellows.



    A year or so ago, I was at a local pool with my son. Somebody had a music player, and was playing some kind of "'90s music" channel. Mostly garbage, but a few good tracks. Anyway, this one came on:



    ...my son looked at me and asked, in all seriousness, "dad, did their radio just break?" I laughed and said no, that song was supposed to sound like that. He gave me a funny look like he thought I was pulling his leg. Then everyone at the pool started giving me funny looks 'cause they couldn't figure out why I was laughing so hard.

    I loved them in the early 90s, seen them live a couple of times - but I'm pretty sure I haven't listened to them in this millennium yet...

    I was never a big fan, but not for any specific reason. I recently bought their self titled LP to revisit it and really enjoy it. I think "This Gift" is just an epic rock song.

    Also a fan, with a renewed interesting starting around 8/9 years ago. Their new albums, and live releases, are fantastic.

    Check out the Wylde Ratttz on bandcamp if you would like some more Mark Arm in your life. They've been posting all the unreleased tracks recently. https://wylderatttz.bandcamp.com

    For those unaware, Wylde Rattz were assembled to record music for the movie Velvet Goldmine and were:

    Ron Asheton: Guitar, vocals, piano, tympani.
    Mark Arm: Vocals.
    Thurston Moore: Guitar, vocals, electronics.
    Mike "Pipe" Watt: Bass, Beam, spiel.
    Steve Shelley: Drums, percussion.
    Don Fleming: Guitar, vocals.
    Sean Ono Lennon: Multitronics, guitar, vocals.
    Jim Dunbar: Percussion, vocals, polaroids.
