The first time I heard this song was on a public radio station. On the 'chorus' I thought Thurston was singing 'consider rape' !!?? :D

Yeah Sonic Youth is great. "Murry Street" and "Sonic Nurse" both very chill albums to chill to.

The guitar parts in this songs are like magic...You know these's a simple explanation but yet you are still amazed...I love it...

Oh, but I forgot to mention I like ol' Thurston Howell there. I like his reedy frail voice. He's the best part of Gilligan's Sonic Youth Island for sure.

I discovered Sonic Youth when "Goo" came out...loved Cool Thing.

NOW I HATE THAT GIRL'S VOICE. Too many imitators which means we have a load of robot chick singers, programmed to think that singing forever off key and flat with posuer non-chalance is somehow the epitomy of indie, when instead it is now overutilized and fully chiche'. Also, the lyrics of Cool Thing are so psuedo college want-to-be intellectual hipster...gr o s s . Almost as bad as using "copacetic" in a song lyric. LAME.

I ripped your heart out from your chest.
Replaced it with a grenade blast.

The firefighters hose me down
but I don't care, I'll burn out anyhow.
It's four-alarm girl, nothing to see.
I hear the sirens come for me.

You doused my soul with gasoline.
You flicked a match into my brain.

The firefighters are so nice
but I remember you so cold as ice.
The flames are licking at your feet.
The sirens come to put me out of misery.

You wave your torch into my eyes.
Flamethrower lover burning mind.
