Vice magazine's Noisey site is premiering a clip of Mudhoney playing "If I Think" one of their best and most poignant songs, a performance that can be found on the DVD Mudhoney: Live in Berlin 1988. One of Mudhoney's earliest tunes, "If I Think" contains the classic line "I'm so sick of what I need," which is as succinct a bit of pop existentialism as you'll ever hear from a hard-rock band. This rendering of it is full of young-Americans-in-Europe-for-the-first-time hunger and ferocity—qualities that haven't diminished very much for Mudhoney over the ensuing 24 years.

Released Nov. 13, Mudhoney: Live in Berlin 1988 contains over 40 minutes of concert footage and also includes an exclusive interview with Mudhoney frontman Mark Arm.

You can pre-order the DVD here.
