With their gaudy celebration of rock & roll and all of its sins, the Supersuckers never quite fit into the Sub Pop roster – they were always a bit too gonzo, a bit too rowdy compared to the grunge that was Sub Pop's stock-in-trade before they signed the suckers, or to the indie fuzz-pop that ruled the label during their tenure there. Their closest compatriots were the Reverend Horton Heat or Mudhoney, who had left the indie for Reprise Records. Still, the Supersuckers persevered, cranking out three LPs for the label, along with handful of EP and singles. As it turned out, they were one of the more reliable artists in the second wave of Sub Pop, as the compilation How the Supersuckers Became the Greatest Rock and Roll Band in the World proves.
