Tomorrow Hit Today is the fifth studio album by the grunge band Mudhoney. It was released by Reprise Records on September 22, 1998 (see 1998 in music). Barely selling 12,000 copies on its release this would be the last album the band would release with Reprise as well as a major label. Although the band retains their grunge sound on the album, a noticeable garage and blues influence can be heard. The album title is a reference to a song, "When Tomorrow Hits", off of their eponymous debut. This is also the last album to feature bass player Matt Lukin.
