I'm wondering if it's even possible to overrate Brother James.

For me:

Overrated: Diamond Sea
Underrated: Flower

Sugar Kane rocks. The melody is really catchy, but the guitars are really cool too. Great song!

Cinderella's Big Score should have definately been amongst the underrated songs. I love the break in that song.

princess_pleasure has a couple of kiss-ass net friends
overrated: schizophrenia (boring sound and awful lyrics)
underrated: paper cup exit (awesome, lee ranaldo at his best)

bad songs: drunken butterfly/teenage riot
best songs: sweet shine/karen koltrane/sympathy for the strawberry/Hits of Sunshine/kotton Crown

i think kotton Crown has the best lyrics ever and it is the most underrated of all SY songs

yeah.. they lost me on Brother James and then Providence as underrated. I agree with Karen Koltrane though, that is a bad ass song.

I think considering how extensive their discography is, we should have a five over/underrated albums not songs..

Overrated

(1) Goo

(2) Experimental Jet Set Trash No Star

(3) Washing Machine

(4) Murray Street

(5) EVOL

Underrated

(1) Sonic Nurse

(2) Rather Ripped

(3) 1000 Leaves

(4) NYC Ghosts and Flowers

(5) The Eternal

Sonic Youth is barely rated at all on anything. I say their entire output is UNRATED!

Sonic Youth were one of those bands in high school that no one really liked. maybe about 20-30 of us (out of 600)
i'm sure there was alot of idiots who thought they just sucked
which to the untrained ear, it's just a bunch of crap
but that'd be coming from a bunch of redneck fucks who liked shit like Dwight Yokham and Offspring.
i bet i was also the only true RUSH fan in high school as well
they all fucking sucked! and i only hang out with 2 of them still
and they both love SY

Really only agree with Kool Thing and Brave Men Run. Kool Thing is great, but I've never understood why it s been the crowd favorite at every Sonic Youth show I've ever been to.

Brave Men Run is easily one of their best songs ever, and I have never seen it get the recognition it deserves.

What's the deal with the Radical Adults entry? That is a strange choice. And although the comparison to Mick Jagger is pretty far off the mark, I admit that I can't help but imagine his cheeky ass singing that song now. Sucks.
