DINOSAUR JR.

Here's what you do: Get them to sit down and say, "Listen. Just listen." Then you crank the Dino. I've been getting people to listen to Dinosaur (Jr.) for 25 years now. It used to be my job.

WATCH // Dinosaur Jr. Premieres “Pierce The Morning Rain” Video

What happens when you combine American suburbia, one heck of a stereo system and Henry Rollins? An awesome Dinosaur Jr. music video. Directed by Emmy-winny comedy writer and director Scott Jacobson (Bob’s Burgers, Saturday Night Live), “Pierce the Morning Rain” stars actor James Urbaniak (Homeland, The Venture Brothers) and comedian Maria Bamford as your average, middle-aged couple whose lives are transformed by playing Dinosaur Jr. as loudly as technology allows. You can watch the video at SPIN or above.

Here’s a welcomed sight! It’s a photo (courtesy of Ray Gordon) of J Mascis and Carrie Brownstein hanging out. Just a little preparation for the new Portlandia episode airing on Friday, January 25th.
