  • J-raff from Boston, MaYeah I don't know if you could call Thurston the "lead singer", even though he sings most of their songs. Kim also sings lead a lot, and Lee Ranaldo usually sings lead on at least one or two songs an album.
  • Kyle from Jefferson, MdI don't think ther is an official lead singer, I think that Kim and Thursston share that job.
    But Kims way hotter.
  • Maggie from San Francisco, CaI wrote a song of the same title and I didn't know it. Ooops...
  • Katie from Newport Beach, Cai live right by PCH.
  • Kat from Seattle, WaI don't know how you figure Thurston sings on this song. Maybe you're thinking about a different song.
  • Dee from Northfield, IlThurston Moore's the lead singer, not Kim Gordon. Both of them actually sing in this song.
