Though the Seattle-based grunge act Mudhoney has received little commercial success since its formation in 1988, the band played a pivotal part in the formation of the modern indie rock scene. When the band first started releasing its blues-influenced garage rock material, it influenced several budding musicians in the Seattle area and inadvertently laid the foundations for the evolution of the grunge genre.
