No band has had more of an impact on the skateboarding world than Dinosaur Jr. Their music and the solo work of J Mascis, the bandÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s guitarist and vocalist, has regularly popped up in skateboard videos since the late 1980s. Throughout all that time, the music has proven itself to be timeless, because its energy has never waned. People simply get amped when they see a part with a Dinosaur Jr song in it.
Dinosaur Jr was a Massachusetts-based power trio that played a particularly guitar heavy form of music that was equal parts hardcore and folk rock.

I love skateboarding, I’ve been doing it for a long time. I saw this article in that issue of SLAP yesterday and I was stoked to see it. I love how J Mascis has always been supportive to my favorite company, Alien Workshop. AWS has a new video coming out soon and I can guarntee that Dinosaur Jr.’ll have at least one song in there.
