Did you grow up loving 80s and 90s alt rock? Then you know Melvins…even if you think you don’t, you do.
Melvins started out in Washington State long before grunge was a media buzzword. Their drummer, Dale Crover, hit the skins on the first Nirvana demo. Lead singer Buzz Osborne introduced Kurt and Krist to Dave Grohl. The Melvins were an important OG alt-rock band.
For a holiday Christmas music compilation, Melvins took on the classic “Carol of the Bells.” But their version twists the song into a Nightmare Before Christmas-esque horror sound.
It’s weird that this song is for an Amazon Christmas compilation…but I’m glad it exists.
