Puddle of Mudd Albums Ranked

Puddle of Mudd is an American rock band formed in Kansas City, MO in 1991. To date, the band has sold over seven million albums and has had a string of No. 1 mainstream rock singles in the United States. Their major-label debut Come Clean has sold over five million copies. They have released an extended play, an independent album, and five studio albums, with their latest being Welcome to Galvania in September 2019. Puddle of Mudd was formed on September 13, 1991, in Kansas City by Wes Scantlin (lead vocals/rhythm guitar), Jimmy Allen (lead guitar), Sean Sammon (bass), and Kenny Burkitt (drums). According to Scantlin, the band name was inspired by practicing next to the Missouri river levee, which always inundated the band’s practice space, but never ruined their equipment since they were on the second floor. In order to get to their practice space, the band “had to walk through a pile of shit.” The group’s first release, Stuck, was an EP released in 1994 on V&R Records. It was produced by the band and E.J. Rose and was recorded at Red House Studio in Lawrence, Kansas. It spawned two radio singles (the first was “You Don’t Know”, the second “Drift and Die”). Minus Jimmy Allen, the group released their debut album, Abrasive, in 1997 on Hardknocks Records. It had eleven tracks, all written by the band, three of which would eventually make it on to Puddle of Mudd’s first major-label release. Differences of opinion and other factors led to the break-up of the original Puddle of Mudd by early 1999, leaving Scantlin as the only original member. Here are all Puddle of Mud albums ranked.

5. Welcome to Galvania (2019)

“I’m a big fan of the band and this is a great album! Wes is such an amazing songwriter and I hope that we get a lot more music in the future. There is a good variety in the songs and any fan of rock music should give the album a listen. Great job guys!”

4. Famous (2007)

“Now Puddle of Mudd became my favourite band back in 2001 when they debuted with Come Clean and I’ve followed them from an early teenager to late teens. But as with alot of teens you go from one band to another, for me not with this band, each album the band trys something new and each time it works. Now with their last record, it was not as good as Come Clean, but with this I think it equals in quality easily.”

3. Volume 4: Songs in the Key of Love & Hate (2009)

“This band is one of my favorites and this cd by them is one of their better ones. It’s one of those cds where you listen to it all the way through and love every song. I would recommend them to anyone who likes alternative or rock music.”

2. Life on Display (2003)

“I usually find myself rating the songs on a CD to the point where I have two or three that are my favorites, and the rest of the CD is sort of filler. In the case of this CD, after listening to it in its entirety maybe 20 times, I have not yet figured out which one is my favorite. Each song is actually quite amazing to a fan of Puddle of Mudd, and there is quite a bit of diversity in the lineup. If you like this band, this CD is going to be the cornerstone of your collection”

1. Come Clean (2001)

” I love the songs blurry and drift and die most of all. this whole cd is killer and I might be getting the rest of their music. Usually I listen to hairbands my faves being Def Leppard, Bon-Jovi, Skid Row and Twisted Sister (although I was young when that music was released, I’m only 35) so this group is quite refreshing just to have something different to listen to since I usually don’t like much grunge and post grunge music. again great cd and I’m glad I got it “
