I wouldn't have a clue.
Maybe a little inspiration from The Sonics?
Who knows?

He is right, but it brings up something that's always bothered me:

They always refer to themselves as "The Sonics" which, to me, is almost offensive!!! What about the actual band, as pictured above, who totally tore shit up, actually called "The Sonics"?!

their biography author says both words comes from other artists/band names, i can't remember from what bands exactly they come but i believe pokkeherrie vbmenu_register("postmenu_124317", true); is right. vbmenu_register("postmenu_124317", true);

i'm sure thousands of band have thought of the name sonic youth, it's not that original (though i like it). i'm pretty sure there's no explanation to the name sonic youth other than the desire to make new fresh music...

Hi. I just signed up to this forum to say.....

Didn't they get their name from the lyrics to the song Nic Fit, by the Untouchables.

SY covered that song on the Dirty album.

The lyrics go:

Get it up, get it in
Sonic tooth, sonic truth
Nic fit, nic fit, nic fit, nic fit

Sign'em up, gotta smoke (?)
Arafat, get a smoke (?)
Nic fit, nic fit, nic fit, nic

Nic fit, nic fit, nic fit, nic fit

Sonic truth, sonic death
Sonic smoke, sonic youth
Nic fit, nic fit, nic fit, nic
