Goo is the sixth studio album by Sonic Youth, released on June 26 1990, it celebrates it's 30th birthday this year. For this album, the band's songwriting is more topical than past works, exploring themes of female empowerment and pop culture.
Goo was a critical and commercial success upon its release, peaking at number 96 on the US Billboard 200, their highest chart position to date. Although it lacked significant radio airplay, its lead single "Kool Thing", a collaborative effort with Public Enemy's Chuck D, reached number seven on the Billboard Modern Rock Tracks chart.
Since then, Goo has been viewed as one of alternative rock's most important albums, and is considered musically and artistically significant.
