  1. 33 1/3: You're Living All Over Me

    33 1/3 Volume 82: Dinosaur Jr.'s You're Living All Over Me


    1985. Dinosaur, still without the Jr. Not hardcore anymore, but not yet anything else either. First live shows: fearsomely loud.

  2. 33 1/3: Flood

    33 1/3 Volume 88: They Might Be Giants' Flood
