"Feel the Pain" is a single by alternative rock band Dinosaur Jr. from their 1994 album Without a Sound. When interviewed by Billboard magazine the producer and mixer for Dinosaur Jr., Agnello, explained that he was after a "dry" sound to the song, "…so dry it jumps out at you." [1] Despite bashing Without a Sound as a whole, "Feel the Pain" was one of the two songs (the other being "I Don't Think So") that music critic Stephen Thomas Erlewine felt was a success.[2] The music video was directed by Spike Jonze.

The song is featured in the films Houseguest and Young Adult. The song is a playable track in Rock Band 2 and Guitar Hero World Tour as well as a downloadable track for Rocksmith 2014.
