Melvins “Everybody Loves Sausages” 4/5

when you’ve been around as long as the Melvins have, you’ve earned the right to release an album of cover songs. Everybody Loves Sausages runs the gamut on their influences. from well-known artists like David Bowie and Queen, to some of the lesser known acts, like punk bands Pop-O-Pies and Tales of Terror. I’m not familiar with every band they covered, so I’ll just simply list the songs in order of my own preference. the Melvins are currently balls-deep in their 30th Anniversary tour, which rolls into the 9:30 Club this Saturday.
