"Spoonman" sure sounds Melvinsy. I hope it gets played elsewgere.

Sad I missed this show but I had early work today.

however unfortunate it is that Spoonman is the worst song ever by Soundgarden.

I was just thinking about how crazy it is that Metallica of all bands covered All Your Lies and Head Injury! Those are some great song choices!

Yep. I wonder if the bands were assigned songs?

AND, this shows that Melvins is also an arena band, the band has presence enough to keep a big audience on their toes.
