The Brian Jonestown Massacre is an American rock band formed in San Francisco in 1988. The band's output spans folk rock, blues rock, psychedelic rock, shoegazing, electronica, and experimental rock.

The Brian Jonestown Massacre began as a shoegazing group in San Francisco in 1988. After their debut and sophomore albums, the group quickly turned to a broader style of psychedelic rock incorporating folk, blues, raga, and later, electronica influences. The name "Brian Jonestown Massacre" is a portmanteau of The Rolling Stones' founder and guitarist Brian Jones and the infamous mass cult suicide in Jonestown, Guyana. The band have gained media notoriety for their tumultuous working relationships and the drug addiction of their leader, Anton Newcombe.
