Mudhoney Really Hates 'Chardonnay'KEXP

While children hunted colorful eggs and families gathered for ham dinners, KEXP celebrated Easter in the best way we knew how: with a special seven-song session by Seattle's godfathers of grunge in Mudhoney. It was the perfect afternoon for wiry frontman Mark Arm to belt out his two-minute ode to the "grape that launched a thousand strippers" in the snarling "Chardonnay."

The legendary local band congregated in our studios to perform a blistering set of new material from its ninth album, Vanishing Point. It's hard to believe that Mudhoney is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year, because it still cranks out music with the same vigor and vitality it had in its youth. For proof, spend two minutes on this page, then watch Mudhoney's entire seven-song performance on KEXP's YouTube channel.
