They changed the way I perceived rock music, and music in general. I thank them for liberating rock musicians to explore outside the box and experiment.

Daydream Nation, Dirty & Goo in that order are some of the greatest albums in rock. Not everything clicks for me such as everything pre Sister but everything they do has my respect even if I don't think it works.

They're just such a cool band. I think at this point, rather than asking what someone's favorite SY album is, you should ask what their second favorite SY album is. Everyone loves Daydream Nation, but everybody will give a different response for second favorite. Mine is Goo, but just two months ago it was Dirty, and before that it was EVOL.

Day dream nation is overrated to me, very unapproachable for first time listeners, casual listeners. Sister is actually a step better album, followed by dirty.

Fucking coolest band ever, I would give anything to spend a day chilling with them. Also doesn't hurt that they have the dopest catalogue of music since the Beatles. So many great albums that it is hard to choose my favorite, though I would have to go with Daydream Nation obviously...

Some great albums but like a lot of grunge music from that period I got very bored with it. GOO is my fave
