120 Reasons To Live: Gas Huffer

Nothing did more to further the cause of Alternative Nation-building than 120 Minutes, MTV’s Sunday-night video showcase of non-mainstream acts. For nearly two decades, the program spanned musical eras from ’80s college rock to ’00s indie, with grunge, Britpop, punk, industrial, electronica and more in between. MAGNET raids the vaults to resurrect our 120 favorite and unjustly forgotten videos from the show’s classic era.

#89: Gas Huffer “More Of Everything”

Hope everyone is spending some time with family during this holiday week. Always a blast to sit around a dying Christmas tree and listen to Gas Huffer, a band not nearly as degenerate as its name implies. Unlike its peers in Mudhoney and Pearl Jam, the Seattle garage/punk outfit never made it too far out of Seattle; but we remember Gas Huffer in all its glory, for singer Matt Wright’s sideburns and tracks like “More Of Everything,” from 1994’s One Inch Masters.
