I don't have a single favorite, but if someone asks me some of my favorite bands, they're always on the list.

Yes. Sonic Youth is my favourite band and it will always be like that.

yeah i agree, its like i love sleater-kinney but they have only done 7 albums, sonic youth have done millions!!!!!! and they are all amazing!, so it would have to be someone with a body of work like Neil Young that could top sonic youth.

I voted YES, because right now I just love them and every single SY member has something that i like beyond their music. And I'm not gay.
That said, maybe I'll change my mind in a near future. Hopefully I'll listen to even better bands in a few years, who knows.

p.s. and seeing them live over the years made me love them more and more, and that's a very important thing to me.

I have a real love hate relationship with the band. Love the music but not at all into them as people (well a couple of them anyway.)

I think that's exactly it. They're now an institution in the same way bands like The Fall or The Cramps are. I feel more of a respect towards them these days than any real enthusiasm about what they're currently doing.

Whilst I get in and out of other bands, SY are like the Beatles for me in that they provide a nagging constant in my life.

They have been on the same level as The Velvet Underground for years now.Last two albums let me down but being let down by Sonic Youth is not the same thing as,say,being let down by The Rolling Stones or rubbish like that.

what porkmarras means (i think) is that if you are let down by sonic youth then it means the music is good but just not as good as it should or could be. But with the rolling stones or someone else the music is only good at its best so if you are let down by it it must be terrible!

I have to admit that most of my other all time favorite bands, from Sun Ra's Arkestra, to the Stooges, the Ramones, and Teenage Jesus and the Jerks, I became aware of, or was influenced to appreciate more, because of Sonic Youth going back the the mid '80s when I first heard them.

I wanted to vote yes, but Sonic Youth is to me the second best band after Swedish Kent.

question is, will that intensify your skepticism and possibly alter your perception of their next full length, and does it ever extend to the side projects?

Yes they still are. Although ironically enough they aren't in the two albums of all time.

Also, isn't it meant to be "Are SY youth your favorite band"

Sure,but then they are one of the very few bands whose albums have become part of my body so i'm allowed to have some double standards here and there.I've bought Rather Ripped and it's been quite some time since i played it because the standards have gone down on their 'official' releases but i'll always buy their records,no matter what.If that didn't become apparent with my first post: The Rolling Stones i consider to be cack.

there is a great webbsite called WHY I HATE MICK JAGGER

Charlie Watts, the drummer for the Stones, once punched Mick. Keith had taken Mick out to party and get wasted and they came back to their hotel around 4:00am-5:00am, loud and drunk. Charlie was in his room asleep when the phone rang and woke him up. It was Mick calling drunk as all fuck, yelling "Where's ma drumma? I need ma drumma!!! Where's ma drumma boy?" into the phone over and over again, and laughing. Charlie Watts got up, showered, shaved himself, got dressed, walked over to Keith's room and knocked on the door. When a drunken Jagger opened the door Charlie, a man of few words, reared back and cold-cocked Mick square in the jaw, sending him flying back, as Keith says, onto the room service cart and almost out the window. Mick started bawling and Charlie put it to Mick clear as crystal: "Don't ever call me your drummer boy again. You're MY fuckin' SINGER."

charlie watts rules.
