Superchunk is well known for their style of loud and fairly simple songs that are about things that happen in ordinary life.

For their self-titled first album, Superchunk was signed to Matador Records. Starting with their next album, No Pocky for Kitty, they have released all of their albums on a label they made themselves called Merge Records.
