Released on June 26, 1990, Goo is the sixth studio album by American alternative punk and noise pioneers, Sonic Youth. This experimental milestone, recorded over a short period in early 1990, was the band’s first release on a major record label (DGC). The album was recorded at Sorcerer Sound Recording Studios and Greene St. Recording.

Even though, Goo is a major label release, it stands today as a symbol of aversion towards mainstream musical values and attitudes. With a wide mix of spoken word, feedback and idiosyncratic chord progressions, Goo is dripping with slacker attitude and pop cultural references to Karen Carpenter, UFOs and dating Jesus’ mom.  It’s a timeless Sonic Youth classic, and one many consider the their most approachable.
