    Sonic Youth - Daydream Nation

    Year: 1988

    When you're ranked as the No. 1 album of the '80s by Pitchfork, you know the hipsters love you. Sonic Youth has become an iconic symbol of cooler-than-you-without-even-trying, and with their fifth studio album, they made something that shaped much of what hipster culture was molded by. Not liking Sonic Youth in the indie/hipster world is like calling Illmatic overrated to a hip-hop head.
