Mudhoney didn’t invent grunge, but they were one of the first bands to truly define the style, and thanks to the bizarro-world logic that has defined their career, they seemed to lose interest in the stuff once you could actually make serious money playing it, ensuring that they wouldn’t have to deal with the mainstream adulation that made followers like Nirvana, Pearl Jam, and Soundgarden into multi-platinum cash cows. By 1995, Grunge’s brief fling on the charts was pretty much over, just in time for Mudhoney to decide they liked the stuff again, and make the finest album of their career, My Brother the Cow.

Produced by Jack Endino, the album includes numerous direct references to bands that influenced Mudhoney’s sound. The song “F.D.K. (Fearless Doctor Killers)”, for example, is a reference to the Bad Brains song “F.V.K. (Fearless Vampire Killers)”. “Orange Ball-Peen Hammer” alludes to the song “Orange Claw Hammer” by Captain Beefheart, as well as containing lyrics borrowed from Led Zeppelin. “1995” is a homage to the Stooges song “1969” and also includes musical references to “L.A. Blues”, another Stooges song.
