Title: Covers I'd like to hear...
Post by: cara on October 22, 2008, 07:43:49 PM
what songs have you listened to and thought would be awesome if covered by the Melvins? Or just what songs in general would you like to see them cover?

I think a Melvins version of Seasick by the Jesus Lizard would be really cool.

This topic gets brought up every year or so and everytime I answer with:

Helmet - Meantime

Anyone disagree?

Imagine if you will Buzz on vocals, Dale and Cody tandem drum assult, and Jarod's bass. Heaven.

Under My Wheels and a really, intensely heavy  slower version of Black JuJu to finish off that era of Alice Cooper...

Yes, to anything Beatles. Even better if Coady took full drumming duties on these songs in a certain part of a very special set and Dale joined Buzz on guitar!!! Especially: Sun King to The End from Abbey Road (in order), One After 909, And Your Bird Can Sing, Happiness is a Warm Gun, and I, Me, Mine.

If they did Beatles I could totally picture them covering Wild Honey Pie and Blue Jay Way. Personally, I'd like to hear them do more songs in the vein of their cover of Ramones' Today Your Love, Tomorrow the World. That's gotta be their best cover, hands down.

 Damaged is classic, but not the best Black Flag album. It's a toss up between My War & Slip It In. It was Ginn's band. He took them into sludgy metal territory. So you might as well say Ginn blows too.

 I also would like to see them doing a set of all the songs from the Dez era, with Dez singing.

How do you turn duck into a soul singer? Put him in the oven until his bill withers.

Sorry folks, had to.

As for a cover? I'm thinking the current line-up could do a tasty 'Ohio', 'Freebird' or 'Hotel California' but my personal choice would be 'The Song That Never Ends' by a certain Mr Charles Horse.

What about Melvins doing a Boris song? That'd be interesting. Heavy Friends would be nice. I always liked that one.

That would be funny, since Boris have never covered any Melvins tunes despite the supposed massive influence (It shows mainly in everything up to Amplifier Worship.). In one interview, a dude asked them if they ever tried playing Honey Bucket, with the band saying they were no good at playing it.

If they had to do a Boris track, I'd like to see them do VOMITSELF. The vocals, what little bit of them, are perfect for Buzz to trip out on and the riff/drone/one chord/whatever with some of that double-drums added would kill.

I think you could hand the Melvins any song and you'd have no idea what the end result would come out like. Look at the Green Manalishi, or Sacrifice - completely different animals to the original versions. In that sense, it's very hard to pick a song that I'd like to hear them cover.

At a push, I'd just tell them to do the Titanic theme. Dale would sing Celine's words beautifully.

i put on my scratch acid - s/t ep and it was on 33rpm instead of 45rpm. First track Cannibal starting playing and it was THUNDEROUSLY EERIE and would make an INCREDIBLE Melvins cover song.
So thats my vote

Scratch Acid - Cannibal (slowed)
some others
Tom Waits - I don't wanna grow up
Neil Young - Cortez the Killer
Wipers - Potential Suicide or Over the Edge
Yardbirds - Heart full of soul
Bad Brains - Sailin' On (slowed down)
Beatles - Helter Skelter (slowed down) or Yer Blues
Black Sabbath - Snow Blind
Sleep - Dragonaut

 Heard this on the FM radio today, and immediately thought that the Melvins could fucking own this with Jared handling the vocals. I first had 2112 on 8-track in the early '80s, and later on cassette, which I should bust out. I don't listen to Rush much anymore, but the old stuff like this still stands up.

I think they could do a number on el espectro or mess by SA.  Ramones covered the Waits song.
I think you're right on the $ with Cortez.  They could give it an eerie dark tone, more so than it already has.  With weird extended slow "solo's" thru out they would have a lot of wiggle room.  I could see them doing it in a similar vein as the bootlicker tracks.

No, i think i agree. It's just that 'Common People' is such a horrible tune that even if (and it's a big IF) the Melvins could turn it into a cool sludge number it would simply have to be instrumental since the lyrics are so godawful.


Then again i guess it could be tongue in cheek like this vile cover.  :-& :-&

I've always been under the assumption that Buzz/Dale are not that big of Zappa/Mothers fans, just casual. They probably respect his way of doing things & social commentaries more than the music. Buzz is more of a Beefheart guy. He did say he caught FZ live in '80 or '81, had to be one of those two years, since he said Steve Vai was in the band.

So for the first time in years, I've been re-visiting and digging in to the Holy Trinity of Deep Purple (MK II) releases - In Rock/Fireball/Machine Head. In doing so I was hit with the realization that they (Melvins) must really dig Purple ... alot of this stuff sounds really, really similar to the trip Melvins have been on since absorbing Big Biz ... yeah, totally. Then in the recent "Ask Dale" interview; Crover's accolades of Paice just nailed this realization ... suprised I hadn't noticed it before; I mean those three DP records have been pretty central in my music listening ... I know them inside out as it were. So yeah, suprised I didn't notice earlier

Suffice to say they should cover "Bloodsucker" ... sounds right up this line up's alley ...

Replace blip-blop sounds with heavy distortion, thundering dual drums, a droning bass and slow the tempo down to half its pace.

i want to throw this in the hat, hoping that someone that knows dale or buzz will tell them to do this. I've watched this video probably about 100 times in the last two days, INCREDIBLY addicting. I got my tom waits starter kit (heartattack and vine, rain dogs, bone machine) and i am about to embark on a long journey chipping away at waits' large body of work.

Melvins would KILL this cover. Might need help with an extra instrument or two, but this waits song IS melvins. Made especially for melvins-lite with Dunn and his double bass.

Star. Wars.

Listen to the way Buzzo transformed the horns from Bernard Herrmann's Cape Fear theme or Dies Irae/Day Of Wrath from the Shining and tell me he couldn't turn that string work into pure skull fuck heavy. The William's theme is more complex, but that's why it's called a cover - you simplify and get right down to brass tacks buddy. Maybe toss in a theremin and add the chanting and dudeeee. Just dude. Melvins would kill it. Not Fantomas. Melvins.

Not a cover as such, but I'd love them to have been given carte blanche to write the music for Blade Runner. Such a wonderful film. Such dreadful farty keyboard music to go with it.

I'm sure Melvins would have created something more appropriately claustrobic and threatening. As it is, I watch this film with the sound down, subtitles on and Pigs of the Roman Empire on the CD player. It works.

Yeah, good choices ... but if we're going NMN covers my vote goes for: Two Lips, Two Lungs, & One Tongue; Red Devil; or Revenge ... I've seen NMN do all of these with a two drummer line up ... add to that NMN's  glorious sibling harmonies ... Melvins w/ 2 drummers and their new found harmony vocal(s) emphasis could just kill these ...

Not a cover as such, but I'd love them to have been given carte blanche to write the music for Blade Runner. Such a wonderful film. Such dreadful farty keyboard music to go with it.

I'm sure Melvins would have created something more appropriately claustrobic and threatening. As it is, I watch this film with the sound down, subtitles on and Pigs of the Roman Empire on the CD player. It works.


That, dear sir....is genius.


I always thought they could make "Beat My Head Against The Wall" by Black Flag work.

Pigs of the Roman Empire is one of my top 10 Melvins releases.  I'm going to have to try this.  I have a couple of friends that were extras in Blade Runner...

No fckuign by nomeansno

I know it is not really their style.
but it is what i want to hear .
or a Thelonius Monk tune .
Just to screw with everyone .
plus monk rules.

They would probably have a lot of fun with a Monk cover. Playing with all that off time stuff.. This is a very intriguing idea...

I think they would most likely take a shot at something like "Epistrophy".

Speaking of which: Endangered Blood, one of Trevor's jazz bands, did a blazing version of that song on their first record.

One Rainy Wish - Jimi Hendrix (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HDgNHoHhgPU#)

The outro sounds like a melvins riff, well in my mind I can hear them play this and it would sound good. I mean if they got those drums as heavy as fuck and the Melvins themselves vocally sounded like they were drunk and buzz simpliefied the guitar parts.  8)

It's there for the taking buzz!

I'd kill to hear them do anything off Machine Head! But Space Truckin'

So for the first time in years, I've been re-visiting and digging in to the Holy Trinity of Deep Purple (MK II) releases - In Rock/Fireball/Machine Head. In doing so I was hit with the realization that they (Melvins) must really dig Purple ... alot of this stuff sounds really, really similar to the trip Melvins have been on since absorbing Big Biz ... yeah, totally. Then in the recent "Ask Dale" interview; Crover's accolades of Paice just nailed this realization ... suprised I hadn't noticed it before; I mean those three DP records have been pretty central in my music listening ... I know them inside out as it were. So yeah, suprised I didn't notice earlier

Suffice to say they should cover "Bloodsucker" ... sounds right up this line up's alley ...

i always thought Neurosis should cover this song, but Melvins/BB would nail:

I Don't Care Anymore [Phil Collins], yes strange but... it has a "dark" vibe from drums - lyrics.

i thought Neurosis because the keyboards & drums, but Melvins replacing the keys with David Stone feedback, just may work, we all know Dale & Cody can tackle the drumming.

well... while typing this i had another idea:

just do a Melvins / Neurosis split with:  I Don't Care Anymore & In The Air Tonight

Never liked Collins, I always felt these tracks are his best work & then we have the Genesis follow up 1991's [I Can't Dance], F*CK i can not stand that song, "joke / pun" or not, i could KILL just from hearing the openning before the vocals come in.

That sucks for me that I missed Rebel Girl in the set by about 2 days. Saw 'em on the 26th in Syracuse, when did this song first appear, NYC Santos shows?

 Said it before, just throwing it out there again. Melvins need to play this one, with Jared & Pinkus together on dual basses:

 With Teri of course. A whole block of PJ Harvey tunes in their set would be awesome. Might as well since Polly's not so much into playing rock n roll these days.

I'm looking for a live cover they did of "I Get Around" by the Beach Boys, but they played it as "I Fuck Around".  Jared and Coady were playing that tour and it was around the time of Bride or Bulls+Bees.  I remember seeing a clip of it and haven't been able to find it again.

It's a pretty obvious pick as far as Devo songs go but I could picture our boys doing a great cover of "Girl U Want" if they haven't already done that.

Also, seeing Buzz get a decent chunk of screentime in FIX: The Ministry Movie made me wonder how a Melvins cover of a Ministry song would be. I could see them doing really well with one of their bigger metal songs like "Thieves" or "So What" or also to see them mutate a more left-field, non-heavy pick like "Every Day is Halloween" or "Work For Love".

Something from Twitch or Land Of Rape And Honey played in the style of some Electroretard remixes, that would rule.

I want to see Big Business opening for Melvins but playing only Melvins songs. Big Melvins would then play an hour of Big Business songs - during any part they didn't want to involve themselves with musically, Dale and Buzz could act out scenes from The Tempest or Moby Dick throughout the second set.

During the interval, Trevor Dunn and David Scott Stone would box each other in a boxing ring on stage while singing songs a cappella from Ozma.

That's a horrible idea. :facepalm:  Ironic covers are stupid. I'm pretty sure Buzz & Dale choose covers of stuff they actually like. I don't know if they've ever mentioned digging the freaking Bee Gees. I'm sure they'd put a unique spin on it if they did though. Claypool covered it on his Duo De Twang album. It was funny the first two times I heard it.

Kiss - "I Was Made For Loving You" :lol:
 True story:
On the OFF! August '14 tour in which Dale filled in on drums, Crover & McDonald played it briefly. When Keith gave props to the opening band Gay Kiss during OFF's set, Dale/Steven played that song for like 30 seconds. Hilarious "had to be there" moment.

There are much better songs on that album. I don't really see Buzz approving of any post 1980 Priest, though.

They could put out a whole country western album and I would enjoy it.

 Well, Altamont covered it, and it smokes. I can't believe this one didn't sell out. If it was under the moniker "Melvins" it would have, and at quadruple the price. :lol:

Well hot damn! I think the Melvins would still wail with it. I was thinking of the synchronized vocals for the chorus!

I'm gonna have to see if I can find the Altamont cover online.

The Stars That Play With Laughing Sam's Dice (Jimi Hendrix Experience)
 No youtube link available. Has anyone of importance ever attempted this? First heard it years ago on the Loose Ends CD. Cranking Disc 1 of the Purple JHE box tonight. Melvins would own it.

The Beatles Blue Jay Way or It's All Too Much would be cool or a more psychedelic number like Tomorrow Never Knows or Within You Without you

The Who should have called it a day 20 yrs ago, after they said their last tour was 10 yrs prior to that. I guess they still play this tune, but I don't want to hear 30 seconds of the Roger & Pete show playing it today. Melvins would destroy this as The Who '69/'70 once did.

I hope the next Melvins album has no cover songs on it. Not that i dislike the covers they do, but i feel like recently their records have given over too much runtime to multiple cover songs. One song can be okay but the last 3 albums particularly have been far too heavily laden with covers. All to their detriment i might add. I'd like to hear a full Melvins album of new material from front to back without hearing a tongue in cheek, ironic cover song or something that doesn't sit well with what surrounds it.

Not so sure that is going to happen - I mean, you have Buzz and Dale who as the Melvins have been doing cover songs live and on albums since the beginning joining forces with Steven McDonald of Redd Kross who have been doing cover songs live and on albums since the beginning. I can only see them doing more!

If it's covers like the ones on Five Legged, then bring it on. I'd rather hear the Melvins do legit classic rock covers than rush out half baked original classic rock. (Not that that's what they are/have been doing, just for sake of argument.)

I could certainly see some more The Who covers. I was watching that documentary concert film the Who did in the late 70s. It reminded me that Buzz has probably styled himself after Townshend in some ways. The commitment to certain stage motions, some songs that are written for their effect on the audience, the way he plans and orchestrates the band and their project-to-project ambitions.

I'd be curious to see them take on "A Long One."
