Sonic Youth – Daydream Nation

Daydream Nation is one of my favorite albums from one of my favorite bands, and probably one of the best college rock albums of all time. Released in 1988, it is the album that made Sonic Youth alternative rock superstars and regularly is cited as one of the best albums of the 80s. This album was Sonic Youth’s most successful to that point and brought them to the major labels, where they would reach better sales numbers (arguably due to increased distribution), but this should be everyone’s first listen if they are new to this band. It one that most fans will likely still enjoy listening to.
