iTunes Review

While Nirvana broke through to the mainstream, Mudhoney were the lovable underdogs who’d actually gotten there first. This 2008 release, their eighth studio wonder, strips the band down to its raw essentials. Recorded in three and a half days with producer Tucker Martine, The Lucky Ones delivers a garage rock buzz that well represents the band’s roots in loose, sweaty, primitive, and excited rock anthems. Singer Mark Arm howls like a vintage ‘60s garage-rocker, aiming for notes by neighborhood not by precise address, throwing his Iggy Pop swagger into the groove. Arm relinquishes all guitar roles to Steve Turner, who overdubs some fine, twisted psychedelic guitar solos. The sound is accordingly leaner and more direct. Dan Peters’ drums connect to every riff, accenting the visceral power of basic ravers like “I’m Now,” “Inside Out Over You,” and “The Open Mind.” The title track, the album’s longest cut at nearly five minutes, even includes a short stretch where Peters’ intense percussive work is given its own platform (not exactly a drum solo, per se, but pretty close). Working quickly means Mudhoney never overthink the situation and just go for broke.

Customer Reviews

One of the few Grunge bands that is still faithful to the Grunge scene of the 90's

Mudhoney is great, this album is great, they're among the ranks that Nirvana had, pure genius!!!


Man this stuff takes me back to junior high. Mudhoney keeps on rockin'. I feel like wearing some flannel shirts.

Nice Honest Rock Raw

I don't really know who Mudhoney is or was, and it doesn't really matter. This is rock n' roll at it's most raw, the great antithesis of the pop-punk sparkley sound everyone and their dog has these days. It's honest, it's real, it's straightforward, and it's great. As America teeters on the brink of it's darkest hours, this is the soundtrack of choice. Simply put, Mudhoney rocks.


Formed: 1988 in Seattle, WA

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '80s, '90s, '00s, '10s

Nirvana may have been the band that put an entire generation in flannel, and Pearl Jam and Soundgarden both sold a lot more records, but Mudhoney were truly the band that made the '90s grunge rock movement possible. Mudhoney were the first real success story for Sub Pop Records; their indie-scene success laid the groundwork for the movement that would (briefly) make Seattle, Washington, the new capital of the rock & roll universe; and they took the sweat-soaked and beer-fueled mixture of heavy metal...
