Hits Are for Squares. Leave it to Sonic Youth to put a twist on the typical greatest-hits album. Originally released in 2008, Hits Are for Squares features tracks selected by writers, artists, actors, and musicians. With a roster of curators that includes Alison Anders, Radiohead, Chloë Sevigny, and the Flaming Lips, this comp could have become a contest to pick the most obscure song (if it were, then Sevigny would win with her selection, World Looks Red from 1983’s Confusion Is Sex)

Now truth be known Sonic Youth needs a "hits" album since their only other one is an 80's collection. The band probably opted to let others choose songs, as picking their own stuff would be about as easy as Phish putting a best-of together. Not easy, and "Hits Are For Squares" is uneven because of it. Goo and Dirty each get a couple tracks. I think "Kool Thing" and "100%" are good choices. Teenage Riot" and "Bull in The Heather" each belong. Honestly, that's about as close to "hits" that Sonic Youth has come.
