List Rules Vote for your favorite Sonic Youth songs, not just singles and hits.

List of the top Sonic Youth songs, as voted on by fans like you. Sonic Youth has left a lasting impression on the world of alternative rock. Since forming in the early '80s, these New York noise rockers have influenced countless indie and underground artists. This poll includes all of Sonic Youth's singles, from "Teen Age Riot" to "Kool Thing," but true fans know that many of the band's best songs were never played on the radio. 

Music videos and audio videos are included next to each track name, so if you haven't heard a song you can listen to it right here on this page. Is one of your favorite Sonic Youth songs missing from this poll? Add it to the list so it has a chance to rise to the top. If the order of this list bothers you, then show off your knowledge by creating your own version and re-ranking it. Simply click the "Rerank List" button and you can put the songs in whatever order you like.
