Miss me, don't dismiss me: Sonic Youth's Kim Gordon turns 58
As a band that didn't really peak until the late '80s, Sonic Youth doesn't get enough love here on Stuck in the '80s. But since bassist and vocalist Kim Gordon turns 58 today -- 58? Doesn't seem possible! -- here's Teen Age Riot from their 1988 album Daydream Nation. (And yes, it's the version with Kim's cool opening monologue. Bonus!)

Personally, I blame our lack of love for Sonic Youth on co-host Sean Daly, whose taste of music is more Phil Collins, as opposed to former co-host Gina Vivinetto, whose superior taste in music made my picks look as lame as Phil Collins.
