Sonic Youth

Anchored by three deeply unconventional singer-songwriters — Thurston Moore, Kim Gordon and Lee Ranaldo — Sonic Youth has cranked out a string of adventurous, dissonant records since 1982, constantly pushing forward into new territory. They were there for the Eighties punk revolution, the Nineties alternative-rock breakthrough and the 2000s musical diaspora, and they've long since become the godfathers of the underground. Not bad for a band that's never had a gold record or even a single in the Hot 100.
