Dinosaur Jr. have earned a reputation as one of the formative influences on American alternative rock. Formed by J Mascis, Lou Barlow and Murph (Emmett "Patrick" Murphy) in Amherst, Massachusetts, in 1984, they injected late-'80s alternative rock with monumental levels of pure guitar noise.

As the group's career progressed, they broke into three distinctive acts: the indie years of the original trio, the '90s spent on major labels with an ever-changing line up, and the surprisingly strong reunion of the original lineup beginning in 2006. Each phase produced distinctively monumental work, from the noisy squall of 1987's SST-released You're Living All Over Me to the insular slacker rock of 1991's Green Mind, the distortion-drenched pop of 2009's Farm, and the seasoned newest album, 2021's Sweep It Into Space.
