Boris is a song by The Melvins on their 1991 album, "Bullhead". "Boris" was reportedly the cat of the owner of "Positively 4th Street" - a record store in downtown Olympia - who had championed the band in their early years. As the song states, Boris "has got you pawed". Due to its extremely slow speeds and repetitive guitars it is often regarded as a doom metal song. The song is a fan favorite and appears on the Melvins retrospective album/book "Neither Here Nor There" and the live album "Alive at the F*cker Club". The Japanese Doom/Drone metal band Boris named themselves after this song.
