Never Say Dinosaur is a tribute album dedicated to legendary Christian rock band Petra. The album includes 12 revisions and re-imaginings of classic Petra songs, all from albums before 1984's Beat the System. Dinosaur contained an eclectic lineup of artists which, at the time, highlighted "some of the best new bands in Christian music."
The album title is a pun on Petra's "age", by rejecting comparisons of the band with extinct dinosaurs, thus "Never say dinosaur". It is also a pun on the title of Petra's fourth studio album Never Say Die.
The album was released by Star Song Records in 1996. They worked with the band during most of the 80s through part of the band's most successful tenure.
