This is arguably my favorite Sonic Youth song. 1) Kim Gordon doesn't attempt to sing (she can't sing), but rather sort of recites the lyrics. That's the only way she sounds halfway decent. 2) A very cute Kathleen Hanna (Bikini Kill, Le Tigre) is dancing around with the band (she's the black-haired girl with pigtails). 3) The instrumentation is noisy, but not noise for the sake of noise, it actually makes sense musically. 4) The lyrics are suitably sexily inscrutable :). This is "Bull in the Heather", off of Sonic Youth's 1994 album Experimental Jet Set, Trash and No Star.
