Never understood the veneration this band generates on this forum. They are one of the most boring and sexless bands I have ever seen live, and made me weary of many a band of dumb stoners with distorted guitars ever since our paths first crossed. On paper everything they are meant to do sounds very promising, then you listen to their records and find yourself wanting to shoot King fucking Buzzo in the mouth. We did have a poster on here who went under the username of King Buzzo, remember? Go, read his posts and see for yourself what The Melvins have done for our youth. This band is the living proof that you owe it to future generations not to listen to shit music, even more so if it's slowed down.

I love the Melvins and consider them as one of my favorites of all time. I admit when I first started listening to them I was a little agast. I did'nt quite relate. But after years of my husband playing it I started to understand. I love Stag and Nude with boots. They are the type of band that you either love or despise. I think I'm in love.

I'll let this pass because you seem like a sweet girl. One question, though: would you consider yourself to be a good mother if you played your kids ''Houdini'' or any other excuse for worthwile sonorous activity that this band churned out to your kids?

Thanks sweetie my kids like em, though they can't understand most of the words especially off of houdini which is probably a good thing. But I would consider myself as a good mommy exposing them to shit besides hanna montana & the naked brothers band.

I think king buzzo didn't like melvins though. Not 100% sure but pretty sure. As for myself, I don't care about them.

yeah i notice i'm no longer in your good books, the way you've turned on me leads me to suspect because i didnt talk to you for ages i must not have been giving you enough attention and your narcissitic pride has taken a blow, but of course that would be absurd as i'm sure you'll remind me. oh, how i care.

have fun with your melvins hatred.

at their best they are absolutely unfuckwithable. check the live video revolve from the lollapalooza tour, or houdini, or stoner witch. no other band could do what they do, or have a song like hooch.

they've plowed through a very single minded and completely independent path for about 25 years, oblivious to anything else that has been going on around them, not really giving a fuck and constantly trying to innovate a singular and very strict sound. and its not like they cant make fun of themselves or are particularily pretentious about it.

Not talked to me for ages? Black book?Narcissistic pride? Man, are you losing the plot?
Not hard feelings here, or better still, no feelings at all for this stuff. I am always there for you if feel like venting via pm or email, just don't childishly expect me to always follow what you happen to be ranting on about with the same degree of interest that you seem to expect.

eh, no, i don't expect you to pay any attention to what i say, i hardly expect any interest from you, and have hardly behaved like i do.

and i don't think i'm loosing the plot, you're well aware that you changed your tone recently.

it's not like i care it's just kind of sad to watch.

i agree with the no feelings idea.

People see my CD collection and can't understand why I don't like The Melvins. I've tried numerous times to get into them but they just leave me with nothing (it's the same with Sunn o))) - even though I accept they're very different bands).

oof. Youve missed me there
Melvins arent the greatest band ever but they are top shit at what they do. I say this as someone who has never been stoned and never known a stoner who likes Melvins. Bullhead in particular is a thumping piece of goodness, they are the kind of band who tell you that theyre shit before you listen to them, but i think they do a good job of convincing you otherwise.

If this is going to be a regular thread idea, put me down for a spot in the Dinosaur Jr massacre

The Melvins are fucking awesome.

Gluery Porch Treatments, Ozma, and Bullhead and the solo Buzzo and Dale Crover ones are the ultimate in fabulous heavy riffage. so heavy makes you squrt juice out yr asshole man!!!!

great fucking live show.

They are an acquired taste I think.

The one time I saw Melvins was one of the most painful hours I've ever had in my 29year-long life.
