The best of Sonic Youth compilation titled Hits are for Squares is being revived on Universal Records on Oct. 31, according to NME. Hits are for Squares is guest-curated; with the songs being chosen by the likes of Mike Watt, Chloe Sevigny, Beck, The Flaming Lips, Mike D and more. Check out the list below.

It's an ironic release date for sure, because it's kind of spooky to see a Sonic Youth greatest hits album, even if it is on Universal Records. This is a repackaging of what was originally released by Starbucks in 2008, and revived on Record Store Day in 2010. Remember when Starbucks stores were considered the next big thing in new ways of distributing music? #irony
