The band Mudhoney, like their record label Sub-Pop, is celebrating their 20th year of existance. This Tuesday, May 20, Mudhoney are putting out a favorites/previously-unreleased collection, Superfuzz Bigmuff Deluxe Edition, in addition to releasing a brand new album, The Lucky Ones.

For the youngsters out there, Mudhoney helped make the whole early-90’s “grunge” revolution possible, by achieving a moderate amount of success, which made it possible for other bands (i.e., Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden) to achieve even more success. Mudhoney never got the big payday, but sometimes that’s the price of being a trailblazer. At times though, it seems like they were having more fun.
