Happy Birthday Thurston!

Thurston Moore of Sonic Youth turned 49 today. That makes him almost twice as old as me, although he looks young enough to still get carded. He has somehow remained perpetually cool through the decades, along with his wife/bassist Kim Gordon. Their daughter Coco is therefore genetically predisposed to be the coolest person in the history of the universe.

As a bonus, here is Sonic Youth's take on The Simpsons' theme song, from an episode that originally aired when I was too young to understand who Sonic Youth was and why it was neat that they were appearing on The Simpsons.
