In a decidedly Melvins approach to a covers album ("Everybody Loves Sausages"), the band not only selected a unique assortment of songs to cover, ranging from Roxy Music’s "In Every Dream Home A Heartache" to Queen’s "Best Friend," they also enlisted several friends to take part including Mudhoney’s Mark Arm joining them for The Scientists’ "Set It On Fire" and Neurosis’ Scott Kelly pitching in on a cover of Venom’s "Warhead."
While the release is billed as a proper Melvins’ album (featuring the line-up of Osborne, Dale Crover, Jared Warren and Coady Willis), there are a handful of songs recorded as the Melvins Lite incarnation of the band (Osborne, Crover and Trevor Dunn): "Female Trouble" (Divine a.k.a. John Waters), "Timothy Leary Lives" (Pop-O-Pies) and "Romance By Tales of Terror" (Tales of Terror).
