Early SY = greatest music I've ever heard. they've also been a gateway to a kind of "culture" of good stuff. I'm not sure if they're exactly a favourite band to me these days, as their recent output has been "ok" at its best.
I suppose it's fair enough to regard them as most important band to me, along with nirvana. Nowadays things like bardo pond, fushitsusha, boredoms, circle, the dead c do so much more for me.

They are my second favorite band, the first being Fleetwood Mac. For some reason I always get made fun of, for one or the other. Or both.

I think Porkmarras is right about SY's current slip in form being less important than it might be by other 'lesser' bands. They're one of those bands you get into for the long haul. As such the dip marked by the last two albums act only as a disappointing rest stop on what still remains an intriguing journey.

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.

No.

Same reply as in the Hip Priest thread: to be honest I like The Notwist, The Cure, Radiohead and Television more than Sonic Youth

However they're in my top 5 for bands and Daydream Nation is surely in my top 5 for records.

SY aren't my favourite band, and they've ceased to be terribly important to me. However, I think without them it'd've taken me a bit longer to get to where I was, musically, a couple of years ago (lots of experimental/ contemporary classical things) which in turn led me to where I am today (somewhere, and I'm happier here than I have been elsewhere). They're still good, and they ocassionally renew my faith in rock (which I suspect I'll abandon almost entirely in the next few years), but I don't feel the need to rabbit on about them for hours any more.
