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.
 
Basses Loaded pre-orders are available now via the Ipecac webstore , Bandcamp, Amazon and iTunes.  Digital pre-orders include instant downloads of “Hideous Woman” and“War Pussy.”

Buzz Osborne, Crover and McDonald are currently on tour, enjoying a co-headlining run with friends Napalm Death:
