Who Needs the Seahawks...

Drunk of the Week

When we have Team Mudhoney? See, nobody in Seattle really cared about the Super Bowl this past weekend—it was all about the sold-out Mudhoney and Sonics show at the Showbox at the Market. We're not a city made of sports—we're made of grunge! I asked these two girls who were pounding beer and headbanging nonstop through the entire show, and they agreed. Mudhoney: 1.
Seattle Seahawks: 0.

Don't agree? What do you think Seattle is really made of? recommended

Actually, Seahawks stadium is the loudest stadium in the NFL, and despite being one of the largest college football stadiums, the Huskies sell out months in advance. No one cared about the Super Bowl because (as usual) it was between teams from the Northeast andor California. The grunge people and the football people are from different parts of town in my experience, however.

#2: You do realize the 12th Man is copied from Texas A&M right?

Seattle is really made of kids who can barely play instruments but want to be in bands that are mentioned in The Stranger. Grunge was slop, is slop and will always be slop. And no, it's not a sports town. Most people here can't get behind anything for more than sixty minutes. Hail me.

#5, the data does not support your conclusions. Seattle, despite having a metro area only about the same population as Omaha, Nebraska and far fewer other significant cities nearby, has one of the largest college football stadiums in the US, which sells out months in advance, and the loudest stadium in the NFL. They do, however, have a grudge against the SuperBowl because of how the Seahawks were wronged by the referees the last time they went.

GREAT PHOTO! And eerily recalls the cover of Mudhoney's genius Superfuzz Bigmuff - surely one of the greatest albums, and album covers of all time.

These chicks look like the Mudhoney daughters - literally, they could pass for Mark Arm's kids.

@6: I can't help but laugh, heartily, out loud every time somebody cries about the superbowl being "stolen" by "bad calls." A loud stadium doesn't mean jack shit if the noise is from fans crying foul every time they start losing.

@11: You're up after Mr. 5, and you'll be the one crying foul about what's been stolen from you.
