    If you subscribe to the adage "If it’s too loud, you’re too old," then the recently reunited alternative-rock pioneers Dinosaur Jr. haven’t aged a bit over the past 15 years. And if you’re unable to score tickets to their sure to be sold-out show at Central Park SummerStage on July 14, don’t worryâ€â€

    So aside from promoting the re-release of their first three albums, why is Dinosaur Jr. back? Perhaps it has something to do with their frustration over the current state of music. "It seems like mediocrity is OK now. I just wish people would be better, or if they weren’t better, that they wouldn’t play," says Mascis.

    God, I wish the White Stripes and the thousand other rubbish "indie" bands farting out anemic gobbledegook and getting critically praised for it would take heed of the wisdom of J.

    The umlaut in Motorhead is in the wrong place.

    I like the White Stipes ok. It’s bands like Nickleback that need to listen up in my opnion.

    That is a great article. It really says everything about why I love the band.
