The Melvins, avid baseball fans that they are, share a cover of the venerable ballpark favorite, “Take Me Out to the Ballgame”: https://melvinsofficial.bandcamp.com/album/basses-loaded. The song is featured on the band’s forthcoming album, Basses Loaded (June 3, Ipecac Recordings).
The twelve-song album features six bass players: including Nirvana’s Krist Novoselic, Redd Kross’ Steve McDonald, Butthole Surfers’ J.D. Pinkus, Big Business’ Jared Warren, Mr. Bungle/Fantomas’ Trevor Dunn (aka Melvins Lite) and Melvins’ drummer Dale Crover swapping the drum kit for bass in the Melvins 1983 iteration.
Buzz Osborne, Crover and McDonald are currently on tour, enjoying a co-headlining run with friends Napalm Death:
