You click on the number (if it's underlined). Cause the Poll creator can choose to keep the votes private.

Everybody's talking 'bout the stormy weather
And what's a man do to but work out whether it's true?
Looking for a man with a focus and a temper
Who can open up a map and see between one and two


There's real poetry in the first song, Teenage Riot.

I love the beginning of that song, when he launches into those lyrics as the guitar riff starts up. Certainly a hair-raiser.

Good work on getting the thread back together after me neglecting it for too long :s NSW i shall send you the remaining nominations i had once i have sorted out my now-miniscular inbox!

Oh, and always yes to Sonic Youth. More classic albums than the more celebrated rock bands out there could dream for and they're still going after all this time. A massive influence on me and most of the music i listen to!

I'm gonna say no, I liked Daydream Nation, but when it comes down to personal opinion, I don't find them interesting at all.

I'm abstaining. Daydream Nation was cool, but I haven't listened to anything else by them.

Yes from me. No other band embodied the opposite of late 80s excess the way Sonic Youth did. You also have to appreciate a band that when signed to a major label continues to roll out great albums. Sonic Youth comes to mind, as does R.E.M.

A word on R.E.M. -

As a huge fan of almost everything they did, deciding my favorite album of theirs is very difficult. 1996's incredibly underrated New Adventures in Hi-Fi definitely comes close. Sonic Youth's "Daydream Nation" was an enormous influence on that album, from the dark distorted guitars to the understated stream of consciousness style of writing. Both albums bring to mind a sort of dirty metropolis; the opposite of the glossed media image of the 80s. Note the similarity in tracks like these.




Amazing band, Sonic Youth.
