Some dinosaurs just refuse to become extinct….and that’s a good thing. Dinosaur Jr. was one of the most important bands of the grunge era in the early 90′s, but they somehow missed the boat that their peers – Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Soundgarden, etc. – road to success and stardom. Recently J Mascis reformed the band and their newest album, Beyond, is a great blast from the past. You may remember them for the minor hits they scored back in the day – “Start Choppin’” and “Feel the Pain” (as well as probably others that I can’t remember) – and the new recordings fall right in line with what they were doing 15 years ago. Below is a live performance of “Almost Ready” from their latest album. Check it out.
