Musicians
    (1983-1998)
    Formed in Amherst, Massachusetts
    J Mascis (December 10, 1965- ), vocalist/guitarist (1983-1998)
    Lou Barlow (July 17, 1966- ), bassist (1983-1989)
    Mike Johnson, bassist (1990-1996)
    Murph, drummer (1983-1994)

    Recorded 'Start Choppin,' 'Just Like Heaven,' 'Show Me the Way,''I Ain't Sayin,' 'In a Jar' and 'Sludgefest'
    Their original name was Dinosaur, but they were sued by a hippie-rock group that was already using the name.
    There were many tensions between Mascis and Lou and one day Mascis told Lou that the band broke up, but they reformed the very next day, excluding Lou.
    After the 1993 Lollapalooza tour, Murph left the band and joined The Lemonheads, only leaving Mike and Mascis.
    A few years after Murph's departure Mike left the band to concentrate on his solo career. Mascis was the only remaining member and declared Dinosaur Jr's last album as a 'Mascis solo album.'
    Mascis's father puts 'Dinosaur Sr.' on his business cards.
    'You're Living All Over Me' was a huge underground hit and sensation that many other bands including Sonic Youth praised it.
    Mascis was called the next Neil Young because his song writing and style of music were very similar.
    'Where You Been' became their first commercial hit.
    Many nineties alternative rock bands became influenced by them including Weezer, Better Than Ezra and The Anniversary.
