The Melvins have released one last taste of their upcoming Melvins 1983 lineup release, ‘Working With God’ (Feb. 26 via Ipecac Recordings). The song 1 Fuck You is an ode to the American singer-songwriter Harry Nilsson. Buzz says “Why haven’t we recorded this song before now? It says it all. Nilsson was a genius!!” This song is not the only tribute piece across the album, I Fuck Around being a re-imagined cover of The Beach Boys – can you spot anymore? Listen to 1 Fuck You via YouTube below.
