All-time worst Sub Pop records (they shoulda let C/Z release 'em)...

Coffin Break "Lies" 7"
Best Kissers in the World "s/t"
Green Magnet School 7"
Big Damn Crazy Weight 7"
Jon Spencer Blues Explosion "xmas" 7"
anything by Reverend Horton Heat
anything by Supersuckers
anything by Combustible Edison
"Hype!" soundtrack (even the great bands can't save the bad moments!)
Nightcaps 7"
glam-era Makers
Pleasure Forever
Migala

Greatest disappointment ever on the label...

Hellacopters "Grande Rock" (where did the guitars go in that mix???)

Before the Hives broke through and just after Turbonegro mysteriously broke up, it was the Hellacopters' job to take over rock 'n' roll. They made some pretty good records up through 1997-98, but then THIS??? There went their chances. They went from collector scum darlings to having bins busting with used CDs within one year of this turd of an album!

anything by Reverend Horton Heat on Sub Pop was good... no, really, it was still "fresh."

anything by Combustible Edison is good, the soundtrack to a drink in your hand and a lovely lady at your side, the night never ending...

Either that, or you're just wrong and other people are trying to point out the bad information.

Soundgarden put out one album on SST, while at Sub Pop, they put out one of the label's very first singles "Hunted Down", very firt e.p.s "Screaming Life" (which was later used as the title of Charles Peterson's book about the Sub Pop days!), and as already mentioned, wrote a song called "Sub Pop Rock City" that was on the Sub Pop 200 comp. They were on Sub Pop and associated with the people there for a number of years, going back to when they played the Ditto tavern in Seattle with Skin Yard on weeknights. While at SST they put out one record right as they got signed to the majors, and were "involved" with the label for less than a year.

Ultramega OK is just o.k. , while all of Soundgarden's best work was on Sub Pop, by the time they moved to the majors, they were Spinal Tap, and knew it to the point of playing "Big Bottom" live.

Possibly Nirvana for me:

1. The first album was very good
2. They were great when I saw them live at the time
3. At the time, we used to have stupid arguments in the pub about who was better, them or Tad (good times for me).

I was quite touched by a young lithuanian musician recently.As we were chatting about Nirvana,i told him that i've seen them 3 times while they were still around and the expression on his face was like,wow!.

Same happens when I mentioned it to my niece and nephew who are big fans, but weren't born when I first saw Nirvana.

I know it's all about diff'rent strokes for me and you, but I just couldn't identify with the swanky feelin's of songs like "It's Martini Time!" I like extreme ridiculousness, but it's gotta be my kinda ridiculous. And I couldn't really see too much separation between RHH and C.E. and stuff like the Cherry Poppin' Daddies and the Crazy 8's. And maybe this all got kick-started by Buster Poindexter, or going back even further...TACO!

One more really sucky record on Sub Pop was that album by Sprinkler.

The first time I saw Nirvana it was at Squid Row, this tiny club in Seattle, and there were honestly like three people in the audience. I had gone to see Skin Yard, who they were opening for. The set was all Bleach stuff of course, and quite a bit more metal stylisitcally than even a few years later when they would still be doing that stuff (they kept doing mostly material off of Bleach for a really long time before they started the stuff that wound up on Nevermind.) I was totally floored by their set, and walked out in a total daze, deciding I didn't need to stay to watch the headlining band because this was too fucking good. I said to myself outloud, as I walked out of the club, "That's the best band in the world, and noone will ever know..."

It seemed that way at the time anyhow...
