Monster Magnet is an American stoner rock band, hailing from Red Bank, New Jersey. Active since 1989 with vocalist/guitarist Dave Wyndorf as the sole original member, Monster Magnet are best known for a dirge-like stoner rock sound inspired by Alice Cooper, Hawkwind and Amon Duul II to name a few. The band gained mainstream attention and fame with their 1998 album Powertrip and the hit single "Space Lord" (Notably the first ever song aired on MTV's famous countdown program "Total Request Live"), also shifting the band's sound to something more resembling commercial rock with hints of space rock and psychedelic.

Monster Magnet to date have ten studio albums along with a host of other releases. Wyndorf went through a series of different names in naming the group such as "Dog of Mystery", "Airport 75", "Triple Bad Acid", "Love Monster" 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.
