Music Video Monday: Sonic Youth
I saw Sonic Youth as the headline at Lollapalooza ’94, the show that will never be forgotten. As you may already know, they are known for their extended jams including feedback and distortions, but they also have several “radio-friendly” hits, such as the song “100%”.
This video so encapsulates everything I thought being the height of cool was in the early 90s. Kim Gordon in a baseball tee and sunglasses. A girl with a bodysuit and a flannel around her waist.
Just guys and gals hanging out at a house party , in beanies and plaid.
A young Spike Jonez in…flannel.
You were arrested if you didn’t wear some sort of beanie/flannel combo.
Black and White shots of a young Jason Lee skateboarding. Do you think he had any idea he’s be in the film Heartbreakers?
Here’s to Thurston and Kim, the coolest couple ever. If they couldn’t make it work, what hope is there for the rest of us?
