The Supersuckers emerged amid the grunge movement that emanated from their adopted Seattle home base in the early 1990s, along with such bands as Mudhoney, Pearl Jam, and Nirvana. The Supersuckers, however, while sharing the Sub Pop label with many of grunge's most notable acts, fell short of the grunge label by embracing garage rock music that subtly parodied the sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll ethos. Originally formed in Tucson, Arizona, as the Black Supersuckers in the late 1980s, the group resettled in Seattle just as the town was earning its reputation as the harbinger of rock music's next major movement. Rather than resembling the gravelly vocals and soft verse/heavy chorus of such grunge acts as Nirvana, however, the Supersuckers presented a full-fledged aural assault on their listeners with a musical style resembling such seminal garage-rock groups as the MC5 and the Stooges. Rather than simply sounding retro, however, the group began to provide high-energy soundtracks for X-treme sports, and their music has been used in Mountain Dew commercials as well as in snow and skateboarding films and videos.
The Supersuckers toured incessantly behind their albums, opening for such acts as the Ramones, the Butthole Surfers, Mudhoney, Social Distortion, Bad Religion, the Reverend Horton Heat, and White Zombie. In addition the group appeared as Willie Nelson's support band during a televised episode of Jay Leno's The Tonight Show, and had songs on the soundtrack of the television series Beverly Hills 90210 and in the films Basketball and Hype. They also increased their public exposure by appearing at several Farm Aid charity concerts organized by Willie Nelson and John Mellencamp. "Throughout this entire time, our sole mission has been to create and perform timeless, quality music and get as many people as possible to hear it," Spaghetti wrote on the band's website. "That goal has never changed. The pursuit of that perfectly imperfect rock 'n' roll moment is all we've ever been after. We've been doing this for well over a decade now and we're just getting started."
