Songs Mudhoney Taught Us



i don't care what any critic says - Mudhoney was a great band and had excellent, excellent taste in music.  a lot of the songs they covered could serve as a Best Of 80's Punk Rock list.  the rest are seemingly very specific choices that all seem to make perfect sense as influences.  two of the songs (The Rose and Baby Help Me Forget) were done in previous Mark Arm bands.

so here i've compiled the original versions of most of the songs Mudhoney covered in their long, distinguished career.
