Chicken Switch is a Melvins remix album by various noise and experimental artists, which was released on September 29, 2009.[5] Unlike usual remix albums where the remixer is given a single track to work with, for Chicken Switch each remixer was given a full album to work with and pull from to create their track (and in some cases, more than one full album was used as source material). The song names were also newly selected by their remixer.
