Suggested by Denis Fitzpatrick, one of our Twitter followers, Dinosaur Jr. is a really good example of college rock. It’s also a good example of how to make hard-hitting rock…or good music, in general. It’s more than just simple bludgeoning riffs, because it also thwarting rock tropes and expectations. The vocal delivery is uncannily similar to Morrisey of the Smiths, which is a compliment because its fun to think about the Smiths taking a sludgy turn. It sounds fresh enough to avoid becoming a fossil and classic enough to avoid going extinct.
