* PunBasedTitle: Since it's one of two songs on ''You're Living All Over Me'' where Lou Barlow takes a lead vocal, "Lose" most likely is a pun on "Lou's".

They've experienced some lineup instability -- Barlow was kicked out in 1989 and Murph in 1991, reducing the band to "J Mascis + other dudes". Mascis eventually retired the name in 1997, but the original lineup got back together in 2005 and has recorded three more albums.

* MultipleDemographicAppeal: Grungy alt-rock angsty indie band with some metalhead fans.

to:

* MohsScaleOfRockAndMetalHardness: All of over the scale- they did everything from acoustic songs (i.e. "Poledo") that reach a 1-2 to extreme NoiseRock tunes like "Don't" that arguably reach an 8 (on the basis of sheer chaos and noisiness). A ''significant'' chunk of their work falls into the 4-6 range, though, but the outliers are numerous enough to make blanket statements about their heaviness difficult to make.

* CreatorBacklash: Though ''Bug'' is one of the band's more highly regarded albums, Mascis has said that it's his least favorite of their catalog.

* VocalTagTeam: The first album was this between J and Lou.
** To a much lesser extent, You're Living All Over Me. Lou sings on three songs, and J sings on seven.

** Actually, most of You're Living All Over Me has this. Only "The Lung" and "In A Jar" avoid this trope.

** "Flying Cloud", a ballad featuring absolutely no guitar distortion, which is a rarity for the band.



* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Riot Grrl bassist [[http://www.flickr.com/photos/invalid_wakes/577495549/ Donna Dresch]] joined the group on tour briefly after Barlow left but didn't stay.
* WritingAroundTrademarks: They were originally called Dinosaur, but got sued by a supergroup called The Dinosaurs and added a "Jr." to the title.
