The Meat Puppets are one of those bands whose omnipresence and influence within alternative music can't be missed: From Nirvana to Pavement, this cowpunk band and early SST Records signee, fronted by Phoenix’s Kirkwood brothers, have been unapologetically themselves since the early '80s. This year, they released their fourteenth album, Rat Farm, which stays true to their psychedelic form and exemplifies why they've been able to continue being as pervasive as they have been all these years.
