Mudhoney Songs Ranked

Mudhoney is an American rock band formed in Seattle, Washington in 1988, following the demise of Green River. Mudhoney’s members are singer and rhythm guitarist Mark Arm, lead guitarist Steve Turner, bassist Guy Maddison, and drummer Dan Peters. Original bassist Matt Lukin left the band in 1999.
Mudhoney’s early releases on the Sub Pop label, particularly their debut single “Touch Me I’m Sick” and the Superfuzz Bigmuff EP, were massively influential on the Seattle music scene. More than almost any other release of the era they inspired the dirty, high-distortion sound that would become grunge. Later on, Mudhoney also mixed heavy blues rock and punk rock into their sound at various stages. Although the band has found little commercial success during its long career, which has yielded ten studio albums, it has inspired countless grunge and alternative rock musicians.  Here are all of Mudhoney’s songs ranked.

15. Broken Hands (Every Good Boy Deserves Fudge, 1991)

“I think this is their most powerful song. It is incredibly unique, it hints at a huge building crescendo, then actually delivers, and rides the momentum. The Neil Young intro is great. I became familiar with this song in 1992”

14. I’m Now (The Lucky Ones, 2008)

“The quick production seems accurately reflected in the overall desperate sound of the album, in particular on the opening song “I’m Now”, a catchy garage rocker worthy of kicking off the record”

13. You Stupid A**hole (March to Fuzz, 2000)

“Mudhoney has tons of great, swaggering records peppered with A-side worthy songs… and those songs are nearly all here. I could list them all, but I think the track listing is already on view up above.”

12. On the Move (Under a Billion Suns, 2006)

“The guitars are still dark, thick, and buzzy, like a hive of bees stuck in black strap molasses. But, sidestepping the long-dead genre of their conception, Mudhoney bring out the brass for this swaggering album of rock ‘n’ roll apocalypse. “

11. Let It Slide (Every Good Boy Deserves Fudge, 1991)

“This is an album full of hits. From the opening organ-driven intro that heads right into “Let It Slide”, this is a band running on all cylinders out of the gate.”

10. Suck You Dry (Piece of Cake, 1992)

“One of Mudhoney’s best singles. The B-Sides, including a Motorhead cover, are pretty cool too. Maximum distorted guitars, Mark Arm’s unique vocals, great punk rock.”

9. Good Enough (Every Good Boy Deserves Fudge, 1991)

“”Well, I’ve made mistakes That I’m sure I’ll make again ” Now that is honesty! People have told me that it is stupid to make the same mistakes over and over again, but isn’t it just human nature? When you live in a world as messed up as ours its pretty hard not to fall back into bad habits. Am I right or is it really just stupidity?”

8. Don’t Fade IV (Every Good Boy Deserves Fudge, 1991)

“More fun and unpretentious garage grunge. Not as raw and consistent as their previous slabs, and more of a focus on hooks and song writing, but most of the songs get the job done.”

7. In ‘N’ Out of Grace (March to Fuzz, 2000)

“Love this song, the grace-neighbour theory sounds credible for Mudhoney, and with the ambiguity just increases the humour”

6. Into the Drink (Every Good Boy Deserves Fudge, 1991)

“To me the lyrics of this song represent a girl that attached herself to you. You know that she isn’t right for you , and that she is just an all around bitch, but you can’t seem to get rid of her.”

5. If I Think (March to Fuzz, 2000)

“march to fuzz is amazing because the rarities are just as good as the greatest hits themselves, this made me fall in love with Mudhoney…they are truly the torchcarriers of the stooges”

4. Here Comes Sickness (Mudhoney, 1989)

“Here Comes Sickness” is a perfect example of the direction in which they were heading, and strangely prophetic with that title.”

3. Hate the Police (March to Fuzz, 2000)

“I don’t know a better short album than this one. All the songs on it pretty much rock. Hate the Police is a good ol’ Mudhoney favorite, The Rose is somewhere between hilarious and completely rocking, and Revolution is a song I have not seen elsewhere in the Mudhoney discography, which surprises me because I consider it to be an excellent piece of music. The words to Revolution have been running through my head since I heard it first many years ago. “

2. Sweet Young Thing Ain’t Sweet No More (March to Fuzz, 2000)

“Half gothic dirge, a half comic send-up of popular teen angst cliches. Singer Mark Arm is laughing at you and with you at the same time, while Steve, Matt, and Dan flood the air with a real low vibe. This is the howling voice of teenage despair that every (smirking) flannel-wearing malcontent of the late ’80s and early 90’s wishes they could have screamed into the abyss.”

1. Touch Me I’m Sick (Hype!, 1996)

“And thus grunge was born. Well not really but i consider this to be the real first grunge anthem, even though some stuff by Melvins could take that spot. Never mind it is a great single, with a great catchy vocal and aggressive guitar riffs. Love its raw production”
