In 2019, The Melvins performed Soundgarden‘s classic “Spoonman” at the Chris Cornell tribute concert I Am the Highway. Now, the grunge pioneers have shared a recorded version of the track, with Matt Cameron of Soundgarden and Pearl Jam on drums.

The Melvins have also shared a video for the track, which appears on the EP Lord of the Flies.

As a member of Soundgarden, Cameron drummed on the original version of “Spoonman,” which appears on their best-selling album Superunknown. On the cover version, he and Melvins drummer Dale Crover play together.

The Melvins were just one of the numerous artists who performed at the January 2019 tribute concert I Am the Highway.  The bill also included Foo Fighters, Metallica, Miley Cyrus, Jerry Cantrell and William DuVall of Alice in Chains, Perry Farrell, Jack Black, Fiona Apple, Josh Homme and Peter Frampton, just to name a few.
