I reckon you would have without the sticker, it just would have been later. Internet was still taking off at that time and I'm sure YouTube or Facebook didn't exist and MySpace came along so music back then was still wordoff mouth unlike these days. You would have stumbled onto Melvins for sure but it wouldn't be as a cool story.

I always wonder if a band will come across that I get sucked into More than Melvins. Cows came close to me and Patton's better releases but so far,so good.

I realised this afternoon that i've been a Melvins fan (although some may dispute that claim) now for exactly 10 years! I first discovered the band around this time of year in 2005. Seeing their name mentioned on a sticker on the front of High On Fire's 'Blessed Black Wings' CD. The sticker read "For fans of Motorhead, Slayer, Melvins." God it actually feels like longer than 10 years ago. I often wonder if i would ever have discovered the band if it wasn't for that sticker. I guess at some point i would have done. It would have been hard not to. Yet the obvious question is how much later?? Amazing to think i was a Nirvana fan for a whole 10 years prior to 2005, reading books on Cobain etc and that and me and Melvins hadn't already crossed paths.

Certainly, mp3s and more recently, streaming music has cheapened music as a whole there is no doubt. I never did vinyls myself but really missed the feeling you get when you had to travel, save up and put $15 down on a CD, went back and put it on and gave it 100% attention listening to it while looking through the notes as it was playing and hoping you didn't waste your money. Nothing like it and as you put it, a gamble which also meant that if the gamble paid off - the album stuck for years and sometimes life.

These days with streaming and mp3s it's like just a thumbsup or skip, that's the total attachment involved ...pressing a thumb icon. Nothing gained, nothing lost. Christ I sound old.  :lol:

But hey I still buy Ipecac, AmpRep etc... records these days but not very many anymore.

My favorite thing about Melvins is the goofy personality | These guys suck and Buzz is a pretentious hipster dork | This sounds nothing like Metallica. | Dales Dad was a drum, its in his blood. | King Buzzo's hair probably holds a lotta secrets | what the fuck is a stee? | Melvins as a way of life
