Video: Sonic Youth - "Superstar"

In honor of the Juno soundtrack hitting #1 on the Billboard Top 100, I present to you the vintage video of Sonic Youth's rendition of the Carpenter's classic "Superstar", which is not only played in the film, but also name checked by Jason Bateman's character early on. Of course, later in the film when Batemen and Juno have a falling out, she tries to rub it in by saying, Sonic Youth "sucks, it's just noise!". That was one of the many music references in the film that brought a smile to my face. Ironically, "Superstar" happens to be one of the most beautiful songs in the SY catalogue. Go figure....
