No. 5 Mudhoney - Superfuzz Bigmuff with BJ Kramp
Coming in at number 5 on Rolling Stones Greatest Grunge Albums is Mudhoney's "Superfuzz Bigmuff". Joining the program this week is host of the Rock And/Or Roll Podcast BJ Kramp. BJ and Bakko go track by track on this early grunge classic.

The album was named after two of the band's favorite guitar effects pedals: the Univox Super-Fuzz and the Electro-Harmonix Big Muff, which helped to provide the band's signature "dirty" sound.
