Melvins

The Melvins are an American rock band that formed in the early 1980s. They usually perform as a trio, but in recent years have performed as a four piece with two drummers. Since 1984, singer and guitarist Buzz Osborne (occasionally known as King Buzzo) and drummer Dale Crover have been the band's constant members. They are said to be "The Godfathers of grunge music." The band was named after a supervisor at a Thriftway in Montesano, Washington, where Osborne also worked as a clerk.
