    • Fuckin’ cool idea, wish I was into this band enough to buy something like this. Unfortunately the only song they’ve done that I really did is “Revolve”. Big pointy looks, big broken knives….

    • there’s been rumors of a box set with all of their ipecac shit for like two years or something… i guess that this is the realization of that. this will be worth it just to have a copy of electroretard. it’s more of a collection of b-sides than a proper album, but they go for like $40 online on account of them being quite out of print.

      Amazing band. Would love to get my hands on one of these but with there only being 300 of them and seeing as MELVINS are one of the biggest cult bands ever i don’t see it happening.

      I can only name three songs by these guys that I like, and you won’t find any of them in this collection. Revolve, Sweet Willy Rollbar, and Instant Larry. I wish I knew of some more good ones, because those three songs are badass and I wish the rest of their music sounded like that. Not enough for half of a greatest hits collection.
