Dinosaur Jr Official Website Dinosaur (1985) You're Living All Over Me (1987) Bug (1988) Green Mind (1991) Where You Been (1993) Without a Sound (1994) Hand It Over (1997) Beyond (2007) Farm (2009) Dinosaur Jr. is an American alternative rock band formed in Amherst, Massachusetts in 1984. They y disbanded in 1997 until reuniting in 2005. Their distinct sound, which is characterized by high gain, extensive use of feedback and distortion, and frontman J Mascis's melodic guitar solos, were highly influential in the alternative rock movement of the 1990s, which is exemplified by the success of acknowledged fan Kurt Cobain of Nirvana. Henry Rollins and Sonic Youth are also big fans of Dinosaur Jr. Great band one of my favorites of all time. Shame they are barely even known.
