Hang On To Your Detuned Guitars

Sonic Youth do their Sonic Youth thing to I Know There's An Answer, a song off The Beach Boys' Pet Sounds, which as everyone knows is one of the greatest albums since blah blah. This is pretty good actually, nicely ramshackle.

I Know There's An Answer started life as a song called Hang On To Your Ego, which some members of the Beach Boys refused to sing claiming it was hippy nonsense. Which it probably was. Doesn't make them right to make Brian go and change it though does it?
