AV Club got Buzz from The Melvins on board for a great little piece: songs by bands “that were good, but blew it.” A highlight:
The [Metallica] song I would pick off that record is Whiplash. You can listen to that and imagine that there hadn’t been anything like that at the time. Now, I would like to take the band on that back cover of the Kill ’Em All album — I would like to take those guys and put them in a time machine and run them forward and make them sit through Some Kind Of Monster and say, “Guys! Do not let this happen!” You know what I mean? How could they not be appalled? They go from a song called Whiplash to a psychiatrist in the studio for $10,000 a week. Metal up your ass, indeed.
