1000 SONGS - DAY 131: SONG #161

DAY 131: A Song from Your Favourite Band in the Library of Congress National Recording Registry

The selection criteria for the Library of Congress National Recording Registry state, that recordings selected for the National Recording Registry are those that are culturally, historically or aesthetically important, and/or inform or reflect life in the United States. Among the rock recordings that obviously match that criterion there are to be found Patti Smith's Horses, an album by REM and Nirvana's Nevermind; from the genre of Hip Hop, amongst others, Fear of a Black Planet by Public Enemy. Some fav's of mine among them, truly. Back in the days, when "Daydream Nation" was released, Sonic Youth were certainly among my favourite bands, and Daydream Nation may be my favourite Sonic Youth album (it also seems to be their most critically acclaimed recording). Opening Track, Teenage Riot, great track:
