The self-proclaimed Dean of American Rock Critics, Robert Christgau is not necessarily a fan of Sonic Youth. Though he has given the band's albums Daydream Nation and Goo A-ratings, other reviews are the equivalent to telling the noise rockers to just pack up their instruments and jump off a bridge. Thurston Moore and co. responded to their worst critic on the song "Kill Yr Idols," saying "I don't know why/You wanna impress Christgau/Ah let that s--- die/And find out the new goal." The Village Voice critic was not impressed, and responded in a scathing, casual way: "I wasn't flattered to hear my name pronounced right, not on this particular title track."
