Intro

A Grunge band, who, like a lot of Grunge bands, were formed out of Seattle, Washington.

They were formed in 1988 after the demise of Green River.

Their early releases on Sub Pop, in particular the debut single "Touch Me I'm Sick" and the Superfuzz Bigmuff EP, were massively influential on the Seattle/Grunge scene, possibly being one of the releases of the era that inspired that dirty, high-distortion sound that would become Grunge.

In later days, Mudhoney started to mix some heavy Blues and Punk into their sound.

Sadly, they found little commercial success during their long career, even though it was definitely deserved, but they dud spawn 10 studio albums, and inspired countless musicians, from many genres, not just Grunge and Alternative Rock.
