Mudhoney Is No Longer Just the Name of a Band in Seattle: ‘This Is Anything But Boring’

Famed Seattle label Sub Pop, home to Mudhoney, also shared the news on social media. “This is anything but boring,” the label captioned a series of Instagram photos of the band and the machine. It also explained the work MudHoney will be doing for the city. “This summer, ‘MudHoney’ will begin digging a 2.7-mile long, 18-ft 10-in diameter storage tunnel to reduce Seattle’s sewer overflow by 2025!”

A video also accompanied Sub Pop’s Instagram post, showing the machine get its paint job, and its unveiling as the band’s “Nerve Attack” plays. A second video shows muralist Devin Finley painting “Mudhoney” onto the machine.

“I guess, you know, there was the idea, that Mudhoney will be digging the s— canal under the ship canal,” bassist Guy Maddison laughed in a video of the unveiling, which the band attended on April 9.

Mudhoney beat out four other finalists to win the honor of having the tunnel boring machine named after the band. The other finalists, according to Seattle Public Utilities, were Daphne, “everyone’s favorite freshwater planktonic crustaceans”; Molly the Mole, “moles dig great holes”; Boris the Plunger, named after the “J.P. Patches” character; and Sir Digs-A-Lot, a play on Seattle rapper Sir Mix-A-Lot’s name.
