Superfuzz Bigmuff Plus Early Singles is a compilation album by the grunge band Mudhoney. The album contains the entire Superfuzz Bigmuff EP, the A-sides and B-sides of 2 singles, and 2 covers from split singles with Sonic Youth and The Dicks. It was released by Sub Pop Records in October 1990. The album is named after the Electro-Harmonix Big Muff Pi and the Univox Super-Fuzz fuzzboxes, (the title also being a play on words) which gave the band their signature dirty sound.

  • "Touch Me I'm Sick" was Mudhoney's first single, and one of the first singles ever released by Sub Pop; "Sweet Young Thing Ain't Sweet No More" was the B-side.
  • "You Got It (Keep It Outta My Face)" was released as a single in 1989; "Burn It Clean" was the B-side.
  • "Hate the Police" is a cover of a song by The Dicks.
  • "Halloween" is a cover of a Sonic Youth song, originally recorded for the split single between the two bands, on which Sonic Youth played "Touch Me I'm Sick."
  • The last 6 tracks on the album are from Mudhoney's debut EP Superfuzz Bigmuff.

In 2005 the album was performed live in its entirety as part of the All Tomorrow's Parties-curated Don't Look Back series.
