For me, this is one of those songs that encapsulate a moment in your life. When I first heard it I played it over again and again and I doubt I could ever become sick of it. Yo La Tengo have largely passed me by until quite recently but I remember the awesome video for this from way back. It's pretty far back in the mix so I suppose I just didn't notice it. Prophetic having the Gene Simmons guy teaching them to rock, long before any of those series were made. And I can't help but think that Jack Black's posse took more than a little guidance from this clip.

Anyway the song's got a great sludgy slacker pop feel with washy guitars and great lyrics.

Yo La Tengo - 'Sugarcube'.
