J Mascis has his own signature Jazzmaster guitar (I've played one, it rules), Dinosaur Jr. has its own pair of Nikes, and now... emojis! From the sludgefeast of its '80s heyday to the band's surprisingly strong return in the past decade, these are the masters of mope and fuzz.
So what kind of emojis can you text your friends and family? Likenesses of J Mascis, Lou Barlow and drummer Murph, of course, but also notable characters from album artwork like Beefy The Bullfrog, a fuzz pedal, and yeah, that sweet Jazzmaster.
You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for. If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
