Monster Magnet is an American stoner rock band. Hailing from Red Bank, New Jersey, the group was founded by Dave Wyndorf (vocals and guitar), John McBain (guitar) and Tim Cronin (vocals and drums). The band first went under the name "Dog of Mystery", "Airport 75", "Triple Bad Acid" and "King Fuzz" before finally settling on "Monster Magnet", taken from the name of a 1960s toy made by Wham-O, which Wyndorf liked when he was a child.Contents [show] Career In 1989, Monster Magnet released two demo cassettes: Forget About Life, I'm High on Dope and I'm Stoned, What Ya Gonna Do About It?. The band's first "official" release was a single "Lizard Johnny/Freakshop USA" on Long Island based Circuit Records. The first demo and single was recorded as a three piece (McBain, Wyndorf, Cronin). Before the second demo Jon Kleiman and Joe Calandra joined on drums and bass respectively making the line up Mcbain-gtr, Wyndorf-gtr/voc, Cronin-Voc, Kleiman-Drums, Calandra-Bass. An EP followedself-titled EP from Glitterhouse Records of Germany. The EP contained the songs "Snake Dance" and "Nod Scene", (both of which would appear again on Spine of God), and "Tractor", (which would be re-recorded later for Powertrip). In 1990 the band signed with Caroline Records and released a single "Murder/Tractor". Cronin left shortly after. In 1991 they released their first full-length album, the cult classic Spine of God. The album is hailed as one the classics of the stoner rock genre ranking 28th on Heavy Planet's "Top 50 of All Time". The album contained the single "Medicine" (which would be recorded ten years later on God Says No), which was also the band's first music video. The band followed with a tour alongside rising grunge band Soundgarden. The tour helped the band get a recording contract with major record label A&M Records. Their final release with Caroline Records was an EP titled Tab which included, among two other marathon-length songs, a 32-minute track called "Tab...". The Tab EP was recorded before Spine of God, yet released after it. McBain quit the band soon after and was replaced by Atomic Bitchwax guitarist Ed Mundell. 1993 saw the release of the album Superjudge. While the album was released on a major label (A&M Records), it fared poorly commercially. The songs "Twin Earth" and "Face Down" were released as singles (with accompanying videos), but it did little to help promote the album. Dopes to Infinity (1995), the follow-up record, had a hit single in "Negasonic Teenage Warhead", which benefitted from a music video that received regular rotation on MTV. Still, the album was not the success the band had hoped for. After the Dopes to Infinity tour, Wyndorf moved to Las Vegas, Nevada in order to begin working on Powertrip (1998), a breakthrough hit that finally earned the band a gold record. Guitarist Phil Caivano joined the band in 1998. "Space Lord", the first single, was a major radio hit and the band went on tour with successful bands Aerosmith, Metallica, Rob Zombie and Marilyn Manson. The songs "Powertrip", "Temple of Your Dreams", and "See You In Hell" also received airplay on rock radio stations.
