Let It All Be is much better live than on Bootlicker.


No chance. When they play it live they turn it into a lame metal song. On Bootlicker it's ghostly gangster funk.

You are not a Melvins fan.
There is nothing lame about any live Melvins show.

What a lame post.

You are not a Melvins fan because you dare to criticise them for turning a cool song into a lame metal song when they play it live. Dude we're not all drones here and bow down to everything the Melvins do..........although obviously alot of you guys do.

I'm a Melvins fan and some times they do pish things........and I vote.

Yeah...No,your wrong. I do like everything the Melvins do & if that makes me a drone then so be it. You seem to have something against
Heavy Metal,which is strange to me because the Melvins music has evolved from and still contains punk/metal roots. This is a big part of
what most fans love about the band. I don't know what 'pish' means,but if your trying to say they do silly or quirky stuff ,metal or otherwise,
again, that is a big part of what Melvins fans like....Anyway, you have a right to your opinion,but I strongly disagree.

gonna have to agree with Let It All Be. Eye Flys. The intro bassline to Revolve (yes, I'm serious!). Lovely Butterflies, which is some (N&I) seriously gangsta shit. Nude With Boots. Laughing With Lucifer At Satan's Sideshow. I love the punchiness of the bass on With Teeth. Go Joe.

dubwise... just check this live footage out for let it all be. dave scott stone on bass. the guitar is still distorted but its not as monotone as the other live versions. its got quiet parts and louder parts like on the album. and dave scott stone can actually play the simple bass line unlike rutmanis who played too heavy and distorted...and wrong http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nVMQ6OUS2l0
