Monster Magnet singer Dave Wyndorf was so attached to this one Wham-O toy that he decided to name his band after it. Formed in 1989, Monster Magnet introduced the world to their heavy stoner rock rooted in the seventies. Their first full-length, ‘Spine of God’, is still regarded as a landmark in stoner rock. On stage, Monster Magnet habitually play all their classic tunes such as 'Dopes to Infinity', 'Negasonic Teenage Warhead' and 'Spacelord’. Now the only remaining founding member, Dave Wyndorf is almost 65 and Monster Magnet has been around for nearly half that time. Even after all those years, Monster Magnet shows no signs of slowing down. They still generate the same energy as in their early days – check out their most recent release ‘A Better Dystopia’ (2021). They simply keep putting out first-rate albums and celebrating their classics and that suits us fine, the perfect combination for GMM. (#GMM22)
