"Teen Age Riot" is a song by Sonic Youth

Thurston Moore told Q Magazine October 2007: "At the time, J Mascis from Dinosaur Jr represented our slacker genius, so in tribute we wrote a song called 'Rock'N'Roll For President' about him being president, which we eventually renamed Teen Age Riot."

The photo-painting, Kerze, that adorned the Daydream Nation album was the work of avant-garde German artist Gerhard Richter. The original canvas was sold at Sotheby's in London in February 2008 to an American private collector for £7.1 million, close to treble its catalogue price. According to Francis Outred of Sotheby's, Richter never intended his work to be used to accompany the music and had almost certainly never heard of the band. "Kerze" translates as "Candle," which is also the name of a song on the double album.

A deluxe edition of the album was released in 2007 and was hailed by various magazines such as Rolling Stone and Spin as the #1 reissue of the year.
