The Melvins!

God help me no one has made a thread for this amazing band? This band basically started grunge, influenced everyone from mastodon to tool, and the man himself king buzzo in it and no one has made a thread for them yet . Stoner witch is an amazing album and my favorite songs are revolve, hooch, and a hella lot more

Revolve, Honey Bucket, Set Me Straight......I wish they did more straightforward songs like these instead of their usual experimental noise, but it just goes to show how kick ass they are that on a dime they can blast out a catchy song like the aforementioned titles.

No one has made a thread because they are too busy posting in the other threads of the more popular and widely known

- this is not an attack on popular or mainstream bands

See the thing about the melvins is you will never hear them being talked about or on tv/radio but so much bands take them for influence. But yeah I only have stoner witch and houdini and I heard the rest isnt too great is it?

I personally like the maggot, though the tracks are all ****ed up. every song is split into pieces.

It has Amazon, which is my favorite song tho.

I just listened to one of the albums they did with Jello Biafra, Sieg Howdy!, It's awesome and obviously very political considering Jello wrote the lyrics.

Houdini or Stoner Witch seem to be a pretty popular starting point.. also make sure you check out Stag, The Maggot, (a) Senile Animal, their collaboration album with lustmord - Pigs of the Roman Empire, Honky and Prick.. damnit just get their entire discography, they are an intensely awesome band. Easily one of the greatest bands ever.

Only got Houdini, but that rocks. Will check out Stoner Witch and some of their newer stuff in 10 minutes.

I like all of their albums(the ones I've heard at least) but I never really see anyone talking about Hostile Ambient Takeover or Honky. In the Freaktose the Bugs Are Dying is one of their best.

I like them, but I don't really consider them modern rock.
