They've gone on record as saying that their major inspiration was Blag Flag's My War album. They're just a ****ing experimental punk band. They're not metal.

My War was a huge influence on sludge metal.



Regardless of what they are, Ozma is a classic and I find it hilarious that the bassist was Shirley Temple's daughter.

Yeah, Melvins have dabbled in and influenced metal. Doesn't make them a metal band. Just makes them a band who have played what turned out to be metal. And I would argue that they were never intentionally playing metal so why call them metal? If you're going to pigeonhole them as anything they're a hardcore band. I mean **** if you wanna talk about sludge metal then Eyehategod honestly sound FAR more like a hardcore band than a metal band.

look what you did, now Batlord wins the argument by default because you used the Wikipedia of metal.

Can we all agree that Crowbar is the epitome and best of sludge metal though?:
