Stalwarts of big, stupid rock music since the mid 1980s, heralded by perpetually afro-headed Buzz Osborne, the only original member left standing King Buzzo, to his minions.
The band has released somewhere near 20 albums in its more than 25 year history, though it depends which ones you count, and which ones you don't. The latest is The Bride Screamed Murder (Ipecac Recordings). Countless imitators have tried to capture the Melvins metal majesty. Few have succeeded. The band performs 10 p.m. tonight at One Eyed Jacks. Tickets are $20.
