(the) Melvins are a prolific rock/metal band originally formed in 1983 in Aberdeen, WA, relocating to San Francisco, CA in 1988, and eventually settling in Los Angeles' San Fernando Valley. The core members are Roger "Buzz" Osborne aka King Buzzo (guitar/lead vocals) and Dale Crover (drums/vocals and bass on early releases). Throughout their 30+ years career they have had a rotating cast of more than 10 bass players and have released more than 20 studio albums. Their current bassist is Steven McDonald. They perform under the name "Melvins Lite" with Trevor Dunn on stand-up bass and under the name "Melvins 1983" with Dale on bass instead of drums, in reference to the early incarnation of the band circa 1983 before Dale played the drums in the band. The name Melvins came from a grocery clerk at the Thriftway in Montesano where King Buzzo served as clerk and vandal. Melvin was the most hated fellow employee and they felt it to be an appropriately ridiculous name.
