    A couple of weeks ago, a dear friend and I went to Borders, which is the closest music retailer to my home. I decided to buy, for no reason, "Daydream Nation" by Sonic Youth. First I liked it. Then I hated it. Now I just don't know! I need someone to monitor my body language and facial expressions as I listen to it, so as to settle once and for all whether I like them or not.

    On one hand...they have a dude in the band named Thurston.
    On the other hand...I'm very ambivalent towards them.

    But that's the thing. I don't really know if I'm trying to like them because they're OMG SONIC YOUTH or if I genuinely like them.

    Oh, then don't worry, it's okay to hate their alternative crap.

    Try "Goo"

    If you don't like Goo, then you don't like them... but you must hear Goo in order to make an accurate call.. :p

    I thought this thread was going ot be about, like, the adventures of a younger Sonic the Hedgehog. Disappointed, needless to say.

    Why, Sonic youth, I think you're quite all right!

    I've been meaning to get into Pavement for a loooooonnngggg time, HOWEVER, the only time I see one of their albums in the store, it's one of those super-expensive, 3 disc, 12,000 bonus track, 300 page liner notes "OMG BEST BAND EVERRRR" type deals, and I don't have that kind of money, sir!

    You do not like Sonic Youth, and are only trying to because you think you should. If you liked them you would know that you like them.

    Well, I dunno if I think I should, seeing as I listen to rather uncool-to-others-but-awesome-to-myself music such as Jefferson Airplane and such, nor do I hang out with the types of folk who do like Sonic Youth. I believe rather that it's difficult stuff to get into, but it is possible.
