Sonic Youth - Dirty

Modern Music
Dirty
is an album by Sonic Youth that was originally released on July 21, 1992.

The track "Sugar Kane" includes a reference to fellow alternative rock band Half Japanese. The lyric "kiss me like a frog" is a reference to the Half Japanese song of the same name.

On March 25, 2003, a double-CD deluxe edition of the album was released. It comprised the original album with additional B-sides, demos and rehearsal recordings.

With the help of their first real producer, they stop flirting with progress and concentrate on remaining the world's greatest rock and roll band--if Butch Vig snuck in a "Smells Like Teen Spirit," it's known only to David Geffen's bagmen, who understand things about airplay that you and I don't. "Youth Against Fascism" is catchy indeed, but fun as it would be to hear "I believe Anita Hill" roaring from a passing boombox, I don't think it'll fly. And elsewhere it's gonna be tough extricating the hooks, which are more plentiful than ever, from the noise, which makes a comeback. Aurally as well as lyrically, this album earns its title. Thurston never could carry a tune, but he can surround one. And when Kim warns you not to touch her breasts, the possibility that she's an uptight chick never crosses your mind.
