In 2008, both Sub Pop and Mudhoney celebrated their 20th anniversaries. Sub Pop could think of no better way to do so than by putting out as many Mudhoney records as possible. So, in the past 18 months, Subpop has released a new Mudhoney album called The Lucky Ones the deluxe, remastered edition of Superfuzz Bigmuff, and recently, the vinyl reissue of Every Good Boy Deserves Fudge.
As Jay Hinman says in the liner notes for the deluxed-up Superfuzz: "My feeling-and I know I'm not alone in this one-is that for all the play and worldwide attention several Seattle-area bands got during the 1988-92 period, at the end of the day (and even at the time), there was Mudhoney-and then there was everybody else. To me, you, and most everyone who was paying close attention to underground rock music during those years, Mudhoney still sound like the undisputed kingpins of roaring, surging, fuzzed-out, punk rock music.
