  1. My favorite Sonic Youth song is “Teen Age Riot” but my favorite album is Dirty (followed by Goo and Experimental Jet Set, Trash and No Star). I got the re-issue of the debut EP and honestly I thought it was terrible. I think all of their early albums were re-issued by DGC, not just Daydream Nation.
