Puddle Of Mudd
WebsitePuddle Of Mudd
In the history of perfectly fitting band names, you’d be hard-pressed to find one more perfectly fitting than Puddle Of Mudd. The name perfectly captures the joyless, sludgy, muddled mess of post-grunge angst peddled by the band, right up to the extra “d” for “dumb.” Despite championing a sound and style that’s little more than a third-rate derivation of Alice In Chains (or perhaps because of that), the band enjoyed great success in the early ’00s, selling a ridiculous more than 5 million copies of its debut,Come Clean. The band has had a hard time replicating the success of that debut, but still enjoys popularity wildly out out of proportion to its abilities, proving, once and for all, that it’s hard to go wrong (economically) peddling tired convolutions of loud, angry, and plodding to resentful teenagers.
