Sub Pop has been around since 1980, created by Bruce Pavitt as a fanzine titled Subterranean Pop, it changed it's name to Sub Pop with issue number two. It wasn't until several years later when Kim Thayil of Soundgarden introduced Pavitt to Jonathan Poneman, that the idea of forming a record label was entertained.
Based in Seattle, Washington the label's claim to fame is being home to several bands that came to be labelled grunge - Nirvana and Soundgarden being the most prominent.

The label is still home to many, many fine artists and their website offers a variety of mp3's found here.
