Water glass cadence
« on: June 10, 2016, 11:26:58 PM »
Does anyone know if the military cadence in the water glass is original or is it taken from actual military cadences? I just saw a commercial for the marines and it was almost identical to the Melvins version. I know I heard the rock steady roll ready part but I didn't catch all of it. The Melvins have a way of showing up in unsuspected places and thought maybe their cadence somehow ended up on a marines commercial.

I think they're all real military cadences.  I remember an interview with buzz where he mentions listening to a bunch of marines, on cd or something?

I also had an army veteran friend tell me that they used similar cadences.

Yes. They said it was a greatest hits compilation of their favorite cadences that made their final cut.

Just saw a snippet on Facebook that showed a part of this song on an Army Reserve commercial. Can't tell if it's the actual recording or not. The peaceniks, of course, are up in arms.  :D

I'll post if a YouTube link pops up.

It's kinda weird hearing it done not by the Melvins this time.


P.S. What is a Peacenik? I'm not nearly as hip as I come off to be.

It is an old cold war term to denigrate anti-war folks as communists.

They're totally using this in the commercial because the Melvins made it cool
