Melvins
The Melvins are an American experimental sludge metal/grunge band that usually perform as a trio. Singer/guitarist Buzz Osborne (aka "King Buzzo") and drummer Dale Crover are constant members, but the band has seen several bass guitarists. They have occasionally added a guest or second guitarist for live performances. The band was named after a supervisor at the Thriftway in Montesano, Washington where Osborne served as a clerk (and vandal). Melvin was greatly despised, and the band's members felt it to be an appropriately ridiculous name.

The Melvins' music is influenced by Black Flag's My War era punk, slow rock acts like Swans, and, most notably Black Sabbath-style metal; however, their idiosyncratic approach, bizarre sense of humor, and experimentation make neat categorization difficult. They often favor very slow tempos, and their sludgy sound was a strong influence on grunge music, especially Nirvana, Soundgarden, and many other bands from Seattle. Their protegs, however, tended to use more conventional musical structures with this sound. The Melvins have also influenced many bands, including Tool,[3] who are personal friends with the band; Crowbar, Mastodon[4] and Eyehategod,[5] who participated in a Melvins tribute album, and Boris, who took their name from the title of a Melvins song.
