I remember when Buzz broke a string in the middle of Bacon industry...I wouldn't mind hearing a studio version of that.

Something tells me we are not done with Melvins covering the Stones. Which is probably ok.

I was listening to this one:
https://youtu.be/uKhSySfXPZA
"Black Limousine"

I thought maybe it's an inspiration for the title "Now a Limo." I guess not probably, but perhaps. Anyway, I think Jagger's phrasing can be very Buzzlike. I have no idea what he's saying in this song mostly and he takes a lot of liberty with the syllables.

I think it would also be cool if they chose like an old female country song. I'd like to hear the Melvins do Patsy Cline or Dolly Parton (who also has a famous song about a limo.)

Let Me Roll It was the B-side to Jet and might be a slightly deeper cut considering what else is on Band On The Run but you're right, I can't think of anything too obscure off the top of my head.

Gun Club - Promise Me maybe? Sex Beat being the closest to a hit on that record.
nah, Paul plays it live every time.
