Ear-Splitting Indie Legends Dinosaur Jr. Release a Set of Slacker-Friendly Emojis in Partnership with Emoji Fame

The Foundational, Hard-Rocking Group Drops a New Set of Shareable Emojis and iMessage Stickers, Packed With Memorable Images From the Band’s Decades-Long Career



The Emojis:

With numerous classic albums, a major role in influencing Kurt Cobain and Nirvana, and a deserved reputation as the loudest band around, Dinosaur Jr. encapsulates the essence of American Indie Rock. Expanding their influence from the Freak Scene to your cracked screen, Dinosaur Jr. partners with Emoji Fame to create its own line of custom emojis for the iPhone.

Featuring expressive facial renderings of guitarist/singer J Mascis, bassist/singer Lou Barlow, and drummer Murph, as well as shareable versions of classic images from the band’s album art, memorable characters and props from music videos, such as the eye-goggles from “Freak Scene” and Beefy The Bulldog, and iconic musical equipment such as fuzz pedals and J’s classic Jazzmaster, the emojis will bring Gen Xers back to their slacker days and inspire today’s youth to pick up a guitar and play it LOUD.

“Dinosaur Jr. may be elder statesman of alternative rock, but they remain evergreen in terms of releasing new music and rocking harder than most bands half their age. These emojis will appeal to their fans young and old,” said Gavin Rhodes, co-founder of Emoji Fame.

The leader in custom emojis, featured in Complex, Billboard, Noisey, Guitar Player, The Albuquerque JournalThe Houston Chronicle, SF Weekly, and Bill Simmons’ The Ringer, Emoji Fame partners with your favorite musicians, celebrities and brands to create unique emojis, with recent sets created for Cypress HillDevo, GG Allin, and Big Freedia.
