The Melvins and Teri Gender Bender Cover Bikini Kill

I don't think words can even express how fucking badass this cover is. First of all, it's a Bikini Girl cover, which is great to begin with. Then you add the sludgy ferocity of The Melvins with Teri Gender Bender of their summer tour mates Le Butcherettes and you get one of the best things you'll hear all year. The Melvins make "Rebel Girl" that much heavier. I think the only thing lacking is the unhinged on the edge of disaster quality of the original. The track was recorded live for Joyful Noise as part of their "Almost Live From Joyful Noise" series, and we all need copies of this to be made available ASAP. Unfortunately, all 100 copies of the 7" are sold out, so we only have the video for now.

For more information on The Melvins, head over to their website. For Le Butcherettes (including their just released last week album), you can find them here. Coincidentally, Bikini Kill just reissued their debut album, Revolution Girl Style Now, yesterday. You can get your copy here.
