Kendrickmusicfreak’s Top 10 Sub Pop Records

For the first decade or so of its existence as a full-time record label, it seemed that Seattle’s Sub Pop Records was going to be synonymous with grunge. Sub Pop were key chroniclers of the fertile Seattle scene in the late-’80s and early-’90s, and were an early breeding ground for Soundgarden and Nirvana. After a decade living down grunge hype, a funny thing happened in the ’00s: Sub Pop going from faded alt-rock stalwarts to insanely-successful enterprise. It’s been a long and varied story over the label’s 20+ years on the job, but the music has been routinely awesome.
