Ciccone Youth is an experimental band which was formed in 1986. It is a side project of Sonic Youth members Steve Shelley, Kim Gordon, Lee Ranaldo, and Thurston Moore, with the Minutemen/fIREHOSE member Mike Watt. The band never played live, but released two records.

Exclusively for Prime members. And while Ciccone Youth retains the band’s caustic experimentation, it’s distinct enough from their regular albums to justify the name change. Named after the surname of Madonna (Louise Ciccone), the band’s only album views the decade through a funhouse mirror and then breaks it into shards.

The studio album,The Whitey Album, included the previously released three tracks as well as three cover songs by other artists: "Addicted to Love" by Robert Palmer (recorded in a karaoke booth), and "Burnin' Up" and "Into the Groove" by Madonna. On 1987's Sister, Sonic Youth continued refining their blend of pop song structures with uncompromising experimentalism. In 1990, Sonic Youth released Goo, their first album for Geffen. The album featured the single "Kool Thing" on which Public Enemy's Chuck D made a guest appearance.

The Whitey Album is also an off-hand reference to the band's desire to cover The Beatles' self-titled album in it's entirety, something that I would truly love to hear. These ideas can be found as early as March 1986, during the recording sessions of EVOL, where Sonic Youth intended a few tracks to be included on a Madonna tribute 7" that apparently never happened. The basic sound of The Whitey Album can only be summed up in a listing of crap contained within the songs: drum machines, beat boxing, freestyle rapping, noise collages, Madonna covers, rickety percussion, and general artistic hilarity. Needle Gun" opens the album with percussive clanks, static, and tuneless mumbling, and is followed by a minute of silence appropriately listed as "(silence)". G-Force", like many of the songs on the album, features Fly Fly Away's confusing psuedo-rants that are more artistically retarded than intelligent.
