Lasted less than two minutes, what is it with right-wingers and their insatiable need to troll? You know when you're attempting to defend someone that has been arrested for supporting nazi's you should probably take stock of how you ended up in that position in life.

Buzz should probably put a bit more thought into appearing on podcasts like this. Not even a minute in and the host is already going on about the 'loopy left', fuck me right-wingers are such negative depressing people.

Gavin was a regular on Fox Red Eye, which Buzz appeared on a lot. He was pretty different then. i'll leave it at that.  :lol:

this one from 4 years ago has been shared plenty in the last 4 years and seems to be one of the more definitive interviews on the subject.

He's a right-wing libertarian. I don't care for his politics but like a lot of his music so I just ignore his political opinions if I see them in interviews or whatever they're not exactly fleshed out or fully thought through just the usual "I'm alright Jack, fuck everyone else".

That aside however appearing on podcasts of far-right lunatics isn't exactly the greatest idea.

Do you think Buzz knew the background of the podcaster prior to the interview? I get the impression with Buzz that if someone, ANYONE says to him "can i interview you?" he will merrily go along with it. I suspect that is more what happened rather than this being an endorsement of the politics. Personally though, i REALLY don't know what all the fuss is about with this. It was just typical Buzz.

Reading this thread about Buzzo's appearance on the show is utterly bizarre, foolish and idiotically reactionary.

I'm not implying in anyway that Buzz was endorsing this guy's politics I'm giving him the assumption of naivety as all it took was a quick search on Google to see he was an extremist. I highly doubt Buzz (or his management) would allow him to be interviewed by just anyone come on if the Grand Wizard of the KKK asked him for an interview do you really think he would do it? Of course he wouldn't.

I didn't even get to the Buzz interview I hard already bailed before then.

Has Buzz got management? I always thought he said they plan/arrange everything themselves. I think you (and plenty of other people online) are making a big, needless fuss about this appearance. Go by what Buzz said and how he normally is - don't just react to him being on the podcast of someone who is right-wing in their opinions. I don't think that matters or relates in any way shape or form.

Not really. You said yourself you didn't watch the interview. So you are reacting to the host or the show. That seems to be what quite a few people are doing online too. Going into this, i didn't know who this host guy was, his opinions or the show itself. To me it was just another Buzz interview clip. Him appearing (as he usually does) on some random YouTube channel that may or may not have anything too associative or fitting culturally wise with the band or it's ethics. Buzz mentioned a couple of things that i imagine some person wouldn't like. But hey people always dislike something. It was a very tame interview. The host seemed stupid but that's the host. I just don't see what people are complaining about with all this. Like i say - it's like people are LOOKING to be insulted.

I'm not even commenting on what Buzz said in the interview like I said I didn't even hear Buzz speak I had already stopped the clip. The host was a bit more than right-wing he was clearly far-right.
Perhaps, but let's say yes so what? Does that automatically make Buzz far-right too then? Plus it's not against the law for people to have their opinions. We may not agree with them but i don't see why any of us should get all troubled, insulted or offended by it. At the end of the day it was only an interview. A mere 5 minutes at that too.

It was mostly Buzzo's usual comments. A few of which he has mentioned before in recent interviews. As we tend to see he has a few replies he automatically goes to when responding to things.

As i saw it, there were only two things uttered by him that anyone might take offence by. One was discussing the movie 'A Wrinkle In Time' which the host said was apparently made to showcase diversity with it's cast. Buzz said it didn't matter about the diversity and that, quite obviously, such things don't (in themselves) make good movies. That he saw the film and said it was terrible. That he has seen fantastic movies that had no diversity. He wasn't saying diversity doesn't matter but that it isn't what makes a movie great.

The other thing Buzz said was about Socialism and how no one ever mentions how the term "Nazi" was also part of socialism. National Socialism as it was formally back in Germany. Buzz didn''t praise Nazi's or any such cause just remarked how he finds it funny that people don't make those connections.

In a sane world, this would not be controversial. The Wrinkle in Time film of a few years ago was unwatchable even by kiddie movie standards. It has Oprah, for God's sake.

Saw it finally in a friend's thread on FB. Not sure if it's been mentioned or if it's adding to anything.

Apparently the interviewer in question was from Gavin McEnnis, who is a major head of the alt-right group The Proud Boys.

The interview has been deleted recently which makes me wonder how well aware Buzz was of this guy.

I’m a bit confused to why this is surfacing. The interview is from a couple years ago. Apparently a couple of music forums and FB groups pulled this out of left field, and now it’s trending and uncool to like melvins again.

I bet it was Dave Grohl, lol. Seeking revenge after all these years.

Anyway I’ve had a couple friends grab screenshots and ask me wtf is going on. I don’t really know how to respond. I know buzz leans conservative, but GM and his proud boys are racist monsters. I wouldn’t want to be caught 50ft away from that prick. Ugh.

first of all, i'm alive.
second of all,

Seeing this made me cringe a ton. I hadn't heard of the Proud Boys before but after all this surfaced I talked to a few American friends of mine who told me that they are or at least were a well-known far right group. I've read a few things about Buzz' politics in the past and honestly I doubt that he didn't know who this Gavin dude was beforehand. To be honest I havent really given a shit about the Melvins in a few years but damn it hurts to see one of your former heroes be a conservative twat. I doubt he's anything more than that but getting interviewed by a far-right fuckwit is top tier cringe, regardless of what they actually talked about.

I question the motives of the human shit taking glee from virtue signaling about it, given that they can’t point to anything Buzz actually said. I saw the interview. Pretty much the same things he’s said in many others. And it’s well before the guy got de-personed. Are we going to haul out the pitchforks for people Gavin used to actually be friends with like David Cross?

This is authoritarian morality policing.

Too late. Everything you've ever said, and everyone you've ever associated with, are now fair game for the cancel mobs. Time and degree of social removal are considerations that come from a place of privilege. In fact, your insinuation that these are somehow relevant is itself an act of white privilege.

Viva La Terreur.

wow. The argument of white privilege is dead in the water. That label is only applied by others and a few who can't seem to deal with identity and harbor a guilt complex. A douche is a douche. Id stay away too. Now buzz isn't afraid of alternative platforms cause he will step up with his own unwavering opinions. Sometimes thats the only way to educate and break down these vile social barriers past on thru centuries of emotional neglect for each other.  Will asshats condemn buzz? Sure, they can't see beyond any surface. Well fuck them, thats just as blind as the hate in this idiots heart. Cancel culture does exist, but its overboard. Wayyy overboard.  Sometimes you need to watch the hard stuff to understand what you're up against. Cause it just puts us all against each other.  The powers that be like that. Insinuations are the markings of a weak argument.

I don’t get it either. I’ve heard buzz say multiple times that he’s never been wrong, pretty sure referencing his career. Well, that shitkid collab proves otherwise haha. It’s terrible. And I was one of those guys thinking Melvins can do no wrong in my eyes up until that point. But my opinion on shitkid has nothing to do with my classic buzz comment. I mean, if that’s the kind of things he said that they went as far as to print in their fanzine then you’re gonna have to do Better than that to cancel him. Sounds like he just has some dumb opinions. I’ve known that for years. I listened to the whole interview he did that’s causing such an uproar. He said some dumb shit but Jesus who hasn’t? He has even said himself to not look to musicians for politics. He’s a musician. Don’t look to him to be changing the world with speaking politics. If his dumb comments are too bad for you to not throw on Houdini, then don’t do it. Move on. Maybe he’ll prove me wrong but I don’t see him rolling out a podium any time soon to apologize for anything. He’s spent his whole life with most people hating his band. What’s a few more haters to the Melvins. Their die hards will pick up the slack.

Until I can see the interview or read anything from it, other than a meme clip, I’m going to assume buzz didn’t know the ins and outs of the PB’s. With his record dropping next week I don’t think this will roll out well. Goddammit.

If anyone has that link can you message it to me please and thanks?


As far as shitkid goes.... what in the actual fuck?! I think their music is (literally) shit so I do not follow on any platforms and am just getting caught up on all the noise.

So let me get this straight... Dale drops their name in several interviews, they collab and tour together, shitkid gets pissed off about some art work, quits the tour, then releases a book (which is probably taken out of context) w text message exchanged from the band? That’s a seriously shady and fucked up way to make a few bucks. So now they’re inviting crowds to boo for them. Buzz would be like, the more you boo, the more we play.

Whatever went down is none of anyone’s business, and releasing that book is a serious invasion of privacy that I do not condone. Now they are using this as a told ya so platform all over social media and printing more books.

Goddammit again. I’m heartbroken.

I highly doubt he knew who he was getting into it at the time. It’s no secret how he openly dislikes socialism and is pretty conservative. That’s all. It doesn’t make him a bad guy.

Shitkid using this to get attention and make money is some huge immature bullshit. As a female who swings leftish, I don’t think it’s an appropriate platform to try to make a fanbase for yourself.

Hi, long time listener, few times caller here.

Buzz has said many times "I don't know why people look to rock stars for political opinions." He's always been an advocate for self reliant thinking. He's joked about the absurdity of the punk rock culture's "norms" and has said "it amazes me that punk rock kids have so many rules about being punk rock." He's also very sarcastic and a bit of an absurdist.

I actually got to see the vid before it got taken down and had never heard of the guy that was interviewing him. The guy basically led the conversation, Buzz was just riffing his riff of punk rock and rules dont go together and the guy tied it to PC Cancel culture. I really don't think Buzz knew who this jerk was, I didn't. Then again I try to avoid bullshit. Thank you for reading my less than two cents, resume your normal programming. - End of line

Thor, I really hope that you're right about Buzz not knowing anything about him. I became aware of Gavin 10 or so years ago when he did his "How to piss in public" video. It was hilarious. Then later he came out as an alt-right, chauvinist, racist, asshole.

This is an older Buzz quote that has stuck with me:
"And I think you should look to higher sources than somebody like me or somebody like Jello or somebody like Noam Chomsky—people who step outside of their area of expertise. Noam Chomsky is a linguist. That’s what he does best. Why anybody listens to him on politics is beyond me." Noam Chomsky steps outside his area of expertise when he talks about politics?

Agreed. It only seems like a story in the Melvins fan circles. No one else is picking it up or throwing mud......yet. This Shitkid development is interesting. I've been reading Asa's comments over on their FB page. It does give the impression that Buzz and co didn't really do anything wrong. That it was more her who took offense or the lines of communication were a bit poor from both sides. Also her attitude make it seem like she would be almost impossible to work with.

From my own observation it's a lesser version of the whole Phil Anselmo shitshow. You're just going to find out who's always hated that band/artist among staunch defenders (and a lot of those people don't go to shows anyways). I don't think the Melvins are really going to lose that many fans over this in the grand scheme of things.

I want a copy of the book just to have Buzz sign it. However, I won't be giving them any of my money. What they are doing is gross and they don't deserve it.

I listened to the podcast yesterday in its entirety. Here is my takeaway:

1. I am absolutely NOT shocked by anything Buzzo said. It just seemed like another interview.
2. GM is a certified tool and shouldn't be allowed to speak, ever.
3. If anything, Melvins only stand to lose some casual fans who probably had no idea he leans conservative. I can see some others really taking this to heart, and that's totally fine. It's their call. 

My only real concern is some of their more questionable art work and merchandise being taken out of context by bored music journalists and hipsters. Just wait til they see the trilogy vinyl! They'll immediately notice the huge red and black swastika, but won't bother to flip it and see the Star of David. All of the imagery represents symbols of hate, but that's the only one they will see. Just wait til they hear Today Your Love, Tomorrow the World and spin that a new one.

The biggest disappointment for me is the fact that he sat in with GM, but I'm over it. I am confident in myself enough to move forward and carry on. Unless the Trump administration starts using Honeybucket at rallies. If that happens we will have no choice but to pack up and move to Australia :lol:

Very good point.

I think most people do too many interviews in general. Talking shit is a popular currency these days, and Buzz has probably never said no to a generic interview request. The questions and approaches rarely change, it's essentially the same fodder that 90s TV types were churning out and artists were already bored of then (and also lit the interviewers up for, but mellowness in age prevails).

Obviously it's on me to listen, but I'd probably be better off not hearing how e.g. "weird" and "out there" the opening bands are that Melvins hand-picked, when they've all been generously mediocre and deritative since the BB/Porn tours. Not saying good old days, just saying.

It should be hard to stick the Melvins as alt-right if you take Jelvins into consideration. "Should" clearly doesn't apply in cancel culture because stupidity. But yes, I've worried for how that appropriated fascist imagery would fare in this modern age if anything ever came up like this. Weirdly enough that probably makes me a Nazi memorabilia hoarder for being glad I got my original Electroretard before it could be canceled.

But honestly, was he even aware of "who" he was?  Was anybody really aware of how shitty this guy was back then? i mean, even now, when the whole thing came up, i had to look up who the guy was. i don't follow any of this stuff. do we know that buzz would have had any clue who or what the proud boys were in early 2018?

He’s relatively famous. He co-founded Vice magazine. He was all over the news in 2016 with his Proud Boys bs. Hard to believe Buzz never heard of him, but who knows?

Hope I didn’t come off like everybody should know who he is. Like I said earlier on, he was on my radar long before his PB crap, with his “pissing in public” video, which is some good comedy. He had a follow up video about how to dress like a man, which I also found funny at the time, but after he went full chauvinist fascist dickhead, that one has aged terribly. Maybe a bit of foreshadowing of what was to come. I was genuinely surprised when he became the Proud Boys guy and started being super outspoken about his messed up views.

You are wasting everyone's valuable time and energy worrying about shit like this (with only a sliver of info they are basing their opinion on) while the world burns.

Just read through it even if I've avoided MetalSucks for years (Mainly because of Axl Rosenberg being one of the most self-indulgent twats in media) and Buzz handled himself pretty well. The key phrase is "I showed some restraint" in lieu of comments. I think back to when Buzz made the comments about that Kurt Cobain documentary and basically doubled down when people lashed out.

He really came out with a well thought out response and I do believe him when he says he had no awareness of prior history with McEnnis. Buzz also strikes me as a guy who's going to roll with the punches no matter what the context of the interview or questions presented are. The guy has talked about everything from dogs to golf to obscure films and other subjects beyond music and presented something to the table of interest.

I'm sticking with my statement that by the time they tour again or put out a new album it's going to blow over. Few fans lost in the grand scheme of it all and those who are being vocal about it never liked the band to begin with. To quote ProJared... "Nobody likes cancel culture except when they can be a part of it.".

Although not a member, i've been reading those boards for years and there are certainly some stupid viewpoints held. Especially in terms of that reactionary thread you refer to. Truly, that one really opened my eyes to just how much people mis-interpret or intentionally twist and skew what is right there in front of them into something that totally isn't. Simply pluck offence out of thin air. It makes me wonder about the intellect of some individuals in how they have politicized or gone off on tangents as to what Buzz said. Seemingly losing all sense of .... well .... sense!

I think that's exactly how it is. Just a silly storm in a teacup. No one really cares and any well adjusted music fan with any shred of normality wouldn't care either.

Personally as a lefty I think Buzz gets a bit of a bad rap as a right-winger in what is ostensibly a lefty world (the music industry or any creative arts really) but he does have some infantile political views. The whole "Nazi's were socialists because it's in their name" thing is just flat out wrong and more some childish debating point.

Aside from being fascists (far-right) the people the Nazi's killed and tortured the most after Jews were communists (far-left), which lead to them trying to invade the USSR. It's the same as trying to claim that North Korea is a democracy because it's officially in their country's name.

The whole "Nazi's were socialists because it's in their name" thing is just flat out wrong and more some childish debating point.

in buzz's defense, the early platforms of the Nazi party and what they were using to sell the idea to the people of germany DID contain a lot of the same talking points the socialists of today bring up: a sustainable minimum wage/jobs for all, increased pensions for retired people, affordable higher education for all, expanded government controlled healthcare (as opposed to being controlled by corporations) etc.

now granted, this all came with a price, and at the end of the day, a lot of it was bullshit based on hindsight and what they did.

i took his point (in the context of the interview) that he doesn't trust "the government" to run stuff, from EITHER angle. and he was using the "buyer beware" example of what happened from what was pitched by the people trying to gain influence by what they actually did.

Yes, the simplicity of "the nazi's were socialists, it's in their name" backfired immensely. I also don't think someone who is as big of a WWII buff as him actually BELIEVES that they were socialists when looking at what actually went down and they way they operated.

Socialism by it's very definition requires the government (or something like that to organize everything) that does not mean that that organization cannot ALSO be fascist in every other way possible.   They are not mutually exclusive.  there is a reason people like bernie sanders call themselves democratic socialists.

This interview had some really interesting stuff from Buzz. Certainly some comments he has never talked about before. Also, i've always wanted his phone to ring during one of these at home interviews and here finally it does!!

Did anyone else catch the part where Buzz said before he met Mackie he was in a 7 year relationship, wanted to take a break from relationships and got married 9 months after the split? I assume that 7 year relationship was Lori?

IIRC Buzz got married in 92 or 93 so that would put Buzz/Lori from 1986 - 1992 so that sounds about right. Would also be a factor on why Lori's second tenure was so short.

Only a few BuzzKill fanzines left! Its ours and Buzz Os textmessages, leading up to him kicking us off as support on Melvins US tour. Both sides of the story. ^^ They didn't pay us for our work on the album collab BANGERS so now were trying to profit while getting the story out! TELL on the assholes!! ;)

       Seems like if you get kicked off a tour, you must have done some really stupid bullshit.
Then you have to be replaced ($), advertising has to be redone ($), hotel rooms canceled ($), etc....all that adds up $$$.
Shitkid probably owes Melvins money.
30+years of touring the world and Shitkid is the only band they've kicked off tour, so, just sayin'.

Yes, that says quite a lot really. I can't wait to read these messages. I hope Shitkid didn't alter or twist the messages to make it look like they were the ones in the right. I just want to be able to read the honest, uncensored back and forth between them and make my own mind up.

I still have absolutely no idea what happened to cause the falling out but even though I'm a Melvins fan and don't agree with her trying to make money off of private text messages, Buzz falls out with virtually every one so it's hardly a surprise.
