The 11 Best Songs By Dinosaur Jr.

Comeback's are a bitch. It barely happens. And it's rarely successful. Currently Michael Jackson is in the middle of a comeback unlike anything the world has ever seen. He has 9 of the top 10 albums on itunes and 50 of the top 100 songs. He has the top 16 albums on Amazon...and is selling out at almost every store in town. But he had to die to accomplish that.

Dinosaur Jr took a more subdued approach...reuniting with all three original members. Granted their sales aren't the epic nature of MJ's...but two albums in and they're making some of the best rock music out there. I guess their strategy was waiting until everyone elese on the scene you'd be a genius by comparion.

Here are the 11 Best Songs By Dinosaur Jr:
1. The Wagon (Green Mind)
2. Freak Scene (Bug)
3. Kracked (You're Living All Over Me)
4. Budge (Bug)
5. Blown It (Green Mind)
6. Feel the Pain (You're Living All Over Me)
7. Repulsion (Dinosaur)
8. Just Like Heaven (You're Living All Over Me)
9. Little Furry Things (You're Living All Over Me)
10. Green Mind (Green Mind)
11. Crumble (Beyond)

Wow, nothing from "Where You Been"? No Start Chopping or Out There? This has always been my favorite Dinosaur Jr. album, although I guess technically it's a J Mascis solo affair b/c he plays all the instruments.

This Warden fellow has a good point! Far be it from me to tell you what songs to like, but that is a great record. Also, my list would have to contain "Puke + Cry."

Feel the Pain is from Without A Sound...Not You're Living all over me

And it's "little Fury Things" not "Furry". But otherwise not a bad lisy. Where if The Lung though?

I think that should be "Little Fury Things" (not Furry) and it's a pretty good list except no Lung or Raisins.
