Schizophrenia, first track from Sonic Youth's 1987 album, Sister, incorporates all of Sonic Youth's best elements within one song. From the poppy intro, to the building tension of the break with the ferocious pay-off, and into the hypnotic end. If you have never listened to Sonic Youth, start with this song right here.

His sister came over, she was out of her mind
She said, \"Jesus had a twin who knew nothing about sin\"
She was laughing like crazy at the trouble I'm in
