I've always believed that Barenaked Ladies, the Dave Matthews Band and Blues Traveler all came out of the same machine -- created by an evil villain/mad-scientist hell-bent on flooding the world's FM airwaves with unlistenable crap.

They've had some good songs, and I don't know who Sonic Youth is, so the Ladies get my vote ;-D

I'm not a huge fan, and don't expect them to go far, but hopefully they'll win this one.

BNL seems to be getting a lot of backlash votes against them. And I haven't even seen anyone say they voted for Sonic Youth because they liked them.

I don't really care for either of them, but SY has the longer bio. I guess my hands are tied.

Wow...either I've totally underestimated BNL, or you need to stop seeing bands full of retarded people....

But seriously, Sonic Youth is unreal. FatGuy above mentioned Daydream Nation--Also peep Dirty, or 1,000 Leaves, or even Washing Machine. They should be renamed Sonic Awesome.

I remember when the Washing Machine album came out. The cover photo of two fans with the same t-shirt was some random picture they had from one of their tours. I remember seeing a thing on MTV news where Sonic Youth was actually looking for the two people in the photo so they could give them credit/money???? I don't remember exactly.

Honestly I haven't given SY a serious listen. Their discography is huge and its a bit overwhelming to figure out what would be a good album to start with. What would you recommend for someone just wanting to get their feet wet?

Oh please will someone else vote so this doesn't end in a tie. I don't want to have another runoff.

I skimmed the SY bio, but I didn't see this...

Can someone suggest some specific songs I can go sample? I think I've only heard Bull in the Heather thanks to Beavis and Butthead.

That show opened my eyes to some great music.
