Fakta Equal parts ramshackle and ferocious, Rehab Doll is the lone full-length from Seattle supergroup-in-retrospect Green River, which featured future Mudhoney leader Mark Arm and Pearl Jam's Jeff Ament and Stone Gossard. Released in Sub Pop's earliest years, Rehab Doll is proto-grunge at its best, its mud-dipped tracks breaking down and building themselves back up in real time. Frontman Mark Arm (later of Mudhoney) sounds like he gargled with lye before cutting tracks like the boogie-gone-bad "Together We'll Never," while the band's rip-roaring cover of David Bowie's "Queen Bitch" (originally only available on the album's cassette release) hints at the wry humor that would animate much of the Seattle scene's best moments. Rehab Doll also features the second iteration of Green River's swaggering single-entendre "Swallow My Pride," which would be covered by fellow Seattle luminaries like Soundgarden and the Fastbacks during the grunge era's initial ascent.
