The Melvins are an American sludge metal band that formed in 1982. They are considered one of the godfathers of grunge music and sludge metal. The band was named after a supervisor at a Thriftway in Montesano, Washington where singer/guitarist Buzz Osborne also worked as a clerk. "Melvin" was greatly despised by other employees, and the band's members felt it to be an appropriately ridiculous name.

Bullhead was released in 1991 through Boner Records. This album is notable for having longer song lengths than previous Melvins albums. Before this, most of their songs were under 2 or 3 minutes. The Japanese experimental rock/drone/metal band Boris took their name from the first track on this album.
