by The Muffs
Released: May 1993
Upon hearing producer Rob Cavallo's work on this, The Muffs' 1993 debut, Green Day approached Cavallo to work on their 1994 major-label debut, Dookie. Kim Shattuck sets the bar unreachably high for every other garage-rocker who has three chords, 99 hooks and looks good in a dress. Her secret: No matter how giddy the numbers get, she always sings them like her life depends on it.
