Sonic Youth Tickets - A Truly Awesome Underground American Rock GroupWhen it came to rock music, sometimes you had to go to basic roots to really make a statement in the industry -- such was the case for bands like R.E.M and H?sker D?. There were no frills, no theatrics, nothing but sheer talent and a need to express themselves through music. Such was the case for a little-known band called Sonic Youth.

Dissonance was a heavy characteristic, something that sounds like Korn. Except Sonic Youth rarely rocked and thrashed like any of those bands.
