A band that is essentially famous for being absolute shit.

For some reason their fans adore them because of this.
Person A: Sonic Youth were part of the "American Underground" duh, they helped start alternative rock!

Person B: They sound like a dog molesting a cat in the anus.

Good, somewhat overrated alternative band. Most people hear about the band before hearing any of their music. They're often talked about by music snobs or posers.
Sonic Youth influenced Nirvana and Kurt Cobain.

The ninth best band ever, after Radiohead, Modest Mouse, Björk, The Flaming Lips, Pink Floyd, Beck, The Pixies, and The Smashing Pumpkins. Not as influential as The Pixies, but more talented, just not as fun to listen to.
Sonic Youth is a very kickass band.
