American alternative rock band Dinosaur Jr.’s ‘Feel the Pain‘ was one of the three superb songs played on the soundtrack of Dexter: New Blood last night — Dexter: New Blood, Season 1, Episode 2, “Storm of Fuck“.
The song was heard playing as Dexter’s son Harrison and the kids are partying.
Dinosaur Jr.’s ‘Feel the Pain‘ is from the band’s sixth studio album Without a Sound, which was released in August, 1994.
The song was the lead and only single from the album, and has since become one of the band’s most popular songs with more than 39 million plays on Spotify alone.
At the time of its release, ‘Feel the Pain‘ charted in three countries, but had its biggest success in the United States. There it made it to #4 on Billboard’s Alternative Airplay chart.
Outside the U.S., the song hit #25 on the UK’s Singles chart and #61 in Australia.
An official music video for ‘Feel the Pain‘ was also released.
That video featured the band in a golf cart riding around New York City, then stopping off in various spots and playing golf, while generally leaving catastrophe in their wake.
Listen to Dinosaur Jr.’s ‘Feel the Pain‘ as heard on Dexter: New Blood last night.
An episode that, what with other songs like Beck’s ‘Black Tambourine‘ was one of the best shows we have had in a while for cool older contemporary music.
Especially this one from Dinosaur Jr. A band that should always have been bigger than they are.
