Mark Arm - The Freewheelin' Mark Arm

Mudhoney's Mark Arm takes on Dylan's "Masters of War", and even steals Dylan's album cover, putting him in a gas mask.

This was released during Gulf War part 1, and wasn't exactly a topic about to be covered by Mudhoney, who were as apolitical as any band could be. Arm doesn't exactly have the best voice for folky stuff, but then again, neither did Dylan, so why not?

The B-side is a goofy Bo Diddley-esque thing (he even gets partial songwriting credit) about rickets, Amsterdam, and getting beat up.

A: Masters Of War
B: My Life With Rickets
