* DevelopmentHell: ''Three Men And A Baby'', a collaboration with godheadSilo bassist/vocalist Mike Kunka, was mostly recorded in 1999, but it wasn't until 2015 that production was finally finished and the album itself was released in 2016. None of the involved parties seem entirely certain about why it was shelved for so long.

Added DiffLines:

***Some non-Kiss shout outs on those releases also occurred in the form of {{Credits Gag}}s: ''King Buzzo'' credits Dale Nixon on bass, after the pseudonym Gregg Ginn used for playing bass on Music/BlackFlag's ''My War''. ''Joe Preston'' credits Marina Sirtis with "counseling", as a reference to the actress who portrayed Counselor Deanna Troi in ''Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration''.


Added DiffLines:

** The title of "Phyllis Dillard" combines the names of actress/comedian Phyllis Diller and their first drummer Mike Dillard.


Added DiffLines:

* StepUpToTheMicrophone: Being solo [=EPs=], ''Dale Crover'' and ''Joe Preston'' have all vocals performed by Dale Crover and Joe Preston, respectively. Dale Crover also sings "Cottonmouth" from ''Stag''.
**''Hold It In'' has Paul Leary and Jeff Pinkus sing lead on three songs each: Pinkus on "Bride Of Crankenstein", "Nine Yards", and "Piss Pistofferson" and Leary on "You Can Make Me Wait", "Eyes On You", and "I Get Along (Hollow Moon)". This is difficult to discern on "Bride Of Crankenstein" because Pinkus manages to imitate Buzz Osborne almost perfectly.

The Melvins began in 1983 in Montesano, Washington by Buzz Osbourne, Matt Lukin, and Mike Dillard, who all attended the same high school. The band started out by playing a cross of Music/JimiHendrix and Music/{{Cream}} covers along with a few hardcore punk songs. Eventually, Mike Dillard left the group, and the band recruited Dale Crover (who would later play drums on a couple of songs on Music/{{Nirvana}}'s first album ''Music/{{Bleach}}'') to be on drums. Shortly after that, the group relocated to Dale's parents' house in Aberdeen, and their sound changed considerably with the decision to slow down their music. In 1986, the band released their first EP, ''Six Songs'', followed by their debut a year later. The band released a series of albums, splits, and EP's over the next few years that wound up being extremely influential to multiple artists and genres of music; bands like Music/{{Nirvana}}, Music/{{Tool}} (who are personal friends with the band), Music/{{Eyehategod}}, Music/{{Neurosis}}, Music/{{Mastodon}}, and Music/{{Boris}} (who took their name from a Melvins song) cite them as influences.

* ''Basses Loaded'', 2016



** In 1992, the then-current members of the band (Buzz Osbourne, Dale Crover, and Joe Preston) put out one solo [=EP=] each, largely as an elaborate reference to Music/{{KISS}} having done the same thing in 1978, but with full albums. Like those [=Kiss=] albums, each EP was released under the band's name, with the member whose solo effort it was serving as the title. The artwork to each EP also featured an airbrushed portrait of a Melvins member, done in the same style of the [=Kiss=] releases, and the band's logo was changed to one that parodied that of [=Kiss=].

* WildHair: The signature look of Buzz Osbourne - he's the one in the top right of the page image. A common joke among the fanbase (especially on YouTube) is that he [[WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons "looks like Sideshow Bob and laughs like Krusty the Clown"]].

* CoverVersion: Aside from the aforementioned ''Everybody Loves Sausages'' and half of ''Electroretard'', they've covered Music/HankWilliams, Music/{{KISS}}, Music/ButtholeSurfers, Music/TheGerms, Green River...among others. The Melvins themselves have been covered by Music/{{Mastodon}}, Music/TheDillingerEscapePlan, Music/StrappingYoungLad, and Music/PigDestroyer...among others, yet again.

** SpeakingSimlish: Sometimes goes far enough to be considered this, most prominently in ''Hooch''. It wasn't left unnoticed: the music video of the said song was featured in [[WesternAnimation/BeavisAndButthead that very cartoon with two dumb guys]], where Butthead tried to figure out the lyrics for Beavis.
