Megapost: Songs Covered By The Melvins

Alright, so this is going to be a double post for Shiny Grey Monotone and Ritual Room. I normally don't duplicate posts like this but I couldn't decide which it would be more suitable for, and this has to be one of the coolest things i've ever posted on either blog. This is a collection of songs that the Melvins have covered complete with some uploads of the original songs. Awesome, right? This was put together by Green Honey on the Melvins BBS forum so kudos to him for taking the time to do this and for giving me the permission to post it. Enjoy.
