Here's Melvins Covering Queen's "You're My Best Friend"By Noisey Staff
Melvins are releasing what they call an "unconventional covers album," adapting songs from artists like Queen and David Bowie as their own. Here's one of their first offerings from that album, called Everybody Loves Sausages, a cover of Queen's "You're My Best Friend," with guest vocals from Caleb Benjamin of Tweak Bird. Melvins--along with Melvins Lite, which pairs frontman Buzz Osborne and drummer Dale Crover with musician Trevor Dunn—are touring soon (lotta shows in Germany, definitely playing up the sausage-loving angle), and you can listen to the cover below.
