Just curious if anybody knows of songs which parody or reference the Melvins?

I know Anal Cunt did 'when i think of true punk rock i think of Nirvana and the Melvins'. 99% of thier songs are garbage, and this songs no different!

The awesome powerviolence band Spazz had a song on 'Sweatin to the oldies 3' which sounds like a loose cover of 'Crayfish' from 26 songs, and is even titled 'Mervyns'!!
I know Chris Dodge(spazz/slap a ham) put out a bit of wax for them, and i think he did the Ozma artwork too.

Are there other songs out there like this that arent proper cover songs??

Here's Geddy Lee talking about the Melvins.

Not songs but your thread works nicely with this stuff.

Here's the Lemmy interview.




LK: King Buzzo! What kind of name is that? King fucking Buzzo?

DL: Can you imagine trying to pick up a girl in a bar? "Hello, my name is King Buzzo."

This was a great read , thanks Grim.

I love this quote, when i read it it can totally hear it the way Lemmy would talk.


DL: Today I was there for THE MELVINS and it was barren.

LK: There is an interesting band.

DL: Yeah, they are. They remind me a little bit of the MC5.

LK: Almost, except that they don't have the drive.

DL: The singer has the Rob Tyner hairdo going, that's for sure. I can't remember his name.

LK: King Buzzo! What kind of name is that? King fucking Buzzo?

DL: Can you imagine trying to pick up a girl in a bar? "Hello, my name is King Buzzo."

LK: "Yes you are!" (laughs) I was that soldier. They do the worst version of "Green Manalishi" that I have ever heard in my life.

DL: I must have missed it.

LK: They open up with it. It is so slow that it is almost unrecognizable.

DL: Well, if they opened with it today it was unrecognizable!

LK: See!
I got the shits real bad.
