I feel similarly about Nirvana's music - great... but no one has responded to it properly.
Really? Nirvana's body of work has translated fairly well into the mainstream, in my opinion, especially since Kurt's death.

But Sonic Youth's music really hasn't touched down in the mainstream since the 90's. Somehow Thurston Moore and the rest of the group have been able to gain and maintain steady notoriety. "Daydream" is definitely my favorite album by SY. "Teenage Riot" is always finding its way into my headphones.
