Bands and musicians BANDS

Dinosaur Jr

Alternative American indie-rock band was originally formed in 1984, split up in 1997 & reunited in 2005.

The band's first UK singles chart hit came in 1989 with their cover of The Cure's "Just Like Heaven".

Their debut album, Dinosaur was released in 1985. The music was extremely eclectic and revealed a combination of musical styles that was very unusual, especially for the mid-1980s: hardcore punk, Crazy Horse-style garage rock, Black Sabbath-style metal riffs, folk rock, twangy country-rock and gothic music.
