(a) Can we really call Erase Errata or Blonde Redhead mainstream??
(b) I think that you like evollove are looking at more from a fan's perspective rather than a music critic's
Obviously I'm not dissing Sonic Youth, they are one of the handful of bands who I actually own their complete discography and have been to more than 4 or 5 shows BUT I'm just being honest..
Sadly I dare say the Black Keys have gotten bigger than Sonic Youth EVER WERE..
On TV including sports and major live events?
Selling out the Staples Center here in LA like they were the Lakers?
On Lebron James' playlist?
Sonic Youth? Not so much..
Today Rap music is the Lakers
