Hey Kool Thing, what you gonna do for us girls?

Why, appear in the season finale of Gilmore Girls and drag their instence on being pop-culture relevant some more, that what Sonic Youth is doing. Recent live stuff and their appearance at Bonnaroo later this year lend one to think they have a bit of jam band in them, which would actually be a "kool" direction for them to go in. It did great things for Ween.

But to me, the Yoot was at there most pop-infused-tastic with The Whitey Album, performed under the moniker Ciccone Youth, and the dance-floor-warper linked below ushered in the at-the-time-harmless pattern of the Ironic Cover Tune, and really, this one is hard to beat.
