This is a roughly chronological list of Sonic Youth's singles, EPs, and a few promotional releases. I've also decided to add the various full-length promotional samplers that Geffen creates once in a while in this section, rather than 'Albums' or 'Compilations' where I don't really feel they're appropriate. For information on the history of these items, read the album capsules for the proper period. For more information on the songs featured on these releases, visit the Song Database.
