Meat Puppets - Monkey and the Snake
The Meat Puppets formed in Phoenix, AZ in 1980 when brothers Cris and Curt Kirkwood and their high school friend Derrick Bostrom decided to start a punk band. The music evolved into their own style of rock with elements of country and psychedelic rock. The band got national attention in 1993 when Cris and Curt joined Nirvana onstage during their MTV Unplugged performance when they played the Meat Puppets' songs Oh Me, Lake of Fire, and Plateau. The Meat Puppets have broken up twice, both times reofrming with new drummers. The band's thirteenth album, Lollipop, was released in April 2011.
