Critically Acclaimed Album Featuring "Teen Age Riot" on Double LP!

Rolling Stone 500 Greatest Albums of All Time - Rated 171/500!

Their first official double album, and their last before signing to a major label, 1988's Daydream Nation was a critical success that earned Sonic Youth substantial acclaim and a major label deal. Several promotional singles were released from the album, including "Teen Age Riot" which charted on Billboard's newly created Modern Rock Tracks chart at number 20.

Daydream Nation was Sonic Youth's sixth album, and their first double LP, clocking in at just over 70 minutes. This was their last album recorded for an "independent" label (though The Whitey Album was released afterwards, it was ready to go prior to Daydream's conception), and was arguably the record that drew the strongest major label attention. It kicks off with the anthemic "Teenage Riot," again pairing Kim and Thurston vocally, and never lets up, boasting an unprecedented three Lee songs, another Mike Watt appearance (on the solemn piano/amp burnout collage "Providence"), and the sprawling "Trilogy" which closes the record. Three singles were released from the album, along with various live versions of "Silver Rocket," and all four songs had video clips filmed.

The music assaults senses as it laughs, celebrates excesses while flaying them. 'Silver Rocket' and 'Cross the Breeze' aren't just songs, but immersive experiences. With palpable urgency and dissonant intent, Daydream Nation announces something is happening. And that something is indie-rock's pole vault into the mainstream's conscious.
