(i thought?)
that said, what's up with sonic youth fans only listening to kanye west albums and other mainstream hip hop? that's like the farthest thing from sonic youth. at least to me it seemed like rock and roll hit a peak in the late 90s and has been pure shit ever since. i'm pretty sure rock and roll has died. so i guess the alternative is mainstream hip hop?
i would think people who are open minded enough to enjoy sonic youth so much they join a message board for them would be more adventurous in their taste in music. i mean when i got into sy when washing machine came out, the only way to find new music in a rural area was mtv and magazines. with the internet i've found so much different music than i ever thought i could. i don't see how that's a bad thing at all. more music. always more music.
