Boner Records was unaware that Lysol was a registered trademark until after the first batch of record jackets and CD booklets/back cards had already been printed. When they requested permission from the Reckitt Benckiser Corporation to use the name, permission was denied. Boner officially retitled the record Melvins and covered the word Lysol with black tape on the front of the jackets and booklets and with black ink on the spines. Early after the initial release, the tape and ink were easily removed, and many fans did so. Later, attempting to remove the tape would result in severe damage. Subsequent printings omitted the word Lysol entirely.
